Ryo Chonan

Ryo Chonan is as tough as nails ... this rugged Japanese fighter began his career in the DEEP and Pancrase organizations of Japan, but now joins the ranks of PRIDE. Chonan boasts wins over such top competitors as Hayato "Mach" Sakurai, Daijiro Matsui, and Carlos Newton. Chonan began his fighting career by training in kyokushin karate in high school. From there he continued to develop his style and eventually would go on to train in the art of Muay Thai in Thailand. Well versed in submissions and the ground game, Chonan can also stand and trade. Chonan gained the nickname of the "piranha" for his ominous glare and his aggressive fighting style!
