Joachim "Hellboy" Hansen: UFC employment is worse than a bleeding colon

Props: In The Guard


"I would fight any one of the UFC lightweights, but the problem is that I will never put my foot in the octagon after they (UFC) tried to be funny. I would rather have bleeding hemorrhoids than fight for the UFC. The Japanese MMA audience is the best in the world. They make magic! I would rather have one true Japanese MMA supporter than one million fake mainstream supporters that will turn their back on you as soon as you lose a fight. I don't care about things that are mainstream."

Winner of the DREAM 2008 lightweight grand prix and former PRIDE fighter Joachim "Hellboy" Hansen (19-7-1) talks candidly about his love for the UFC and the support of stateside sponsors.
