Taiyo Nakahara Wiki Update Wiki

FROM FIGHT PROMOTION LEGEND FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP (WWW.LEGENDFC.COM):


Nakahara is one of the most high-profile fighters to emerge from Japan’s elite Wajutsu Keishukai academies. The Tokyo native began training in martial arts at an early age, and says that it was MMA’s “overall artistry” that ultimately drew him into the sport. Nakahara made his professional MMA debut at the age of 19, and has fought in some of Japan’s most well-known organizations, including Shooto and K-1 Hero’s, and was previously the number one contender for the Sengoku Bantamweight Title. Now a member of Legend’s highly competitive bantamweight division, Nakahara will be seeking to establish himself as one of the region’s best fighters in his weight class.
