UFC 144 video trailer, Japanese anime style

I think I'm turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will return to the "Land of the Rising Sun" for the first time in more than a decade when the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion brings UFC 144 to the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, this upcoming Saturday (Feb. 25, 2012).

And while you won't see grandiose entrances like you did back in PRIDE FC, or freak-show fights and masked combatants, you will see a little Japanese flavor when you taste some of the local marketing efforts to help garner interest in this weekend's combat sports extravaganza, evidenced by the video above.

Can you dig it?
