After nearly fourteen years as a professional mixed martial artist, Tatsuya Kawajiri has finally made his UFC debut. And was he impressive.

Kawajiri was in early trouble against Sean Soriano as the Blackzillians product was touching up the Asian MMA legend with strikes early and often. Kawajiri was eventually able to get Soriano down where the fight swung in his favor. Kawajiri smashed Soriano with ground and pound from full and back mount and threatened with multiple rear-naked chokes.

The second round was no different than the latter half of the first round as Kawajiri took down Soriano and dominated the fight from the mount. Kawajiri eventually moved to back mount where he choked Soriano unconscious 50 seconds into the round.

In his post-fight interview Kawajiri asked for a stronger opponent than Sean Soriano for his next UFC outing. With the win Kawajiri advances to 33-7-2 while Soriano drops to 8-1.

Daniel Reveles
Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, Daniel Reveles' interest in Mixed Martial Arts began at the age of fourteen while attending a Fantasy Football draft at a Friend's house. That day Daniel's buddies ordered UFC 88 on Pay-Per-View featuring lauded striker and hometown hero Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell squaring off with Division One Wrestler “Suga” Rashad Evans. After seeing “the wrestler” Rashad Evans put the Ice Man out cold with an overhand right, Daniel became instantly hooked by the unpredictability of the sport. Since that moment Daniel has become well versed in Mixed Martial Arts History and has yet to miss an event. Daniel is currently studying at the University of California Santa Barbara to receive his Bachelor's Degree in Communications with hopes of becoming the next big media mogul. When he is not watching MMA or studying you can find Daniel hanging out with his family and friends or taking in a game at the lovely Dodger Stadium.
