Yusuke Kawanago Wiki


A knockout artist who looks to finish every fight, Kawanago is one of the most exciting prospects in Japanese MMA. He has earned the nickname “Bancho” (Japanese for “Leader”) for fighting more frequently than anyone else on his team. As a 20-year old, with no prior combat sports experience, Kawanago’s passion for MMA drove him to the highly regarded Akimoto Dojo, which he has called home ever since. With every victory in the ring, he feels that he honors his coaches and teammates, as well as taking steps toward his ultimate goal: to be one of the greatest MMA champions to come out of Japan.
