Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto: “I can take Dominick Cruz out.”

Japanese bantamweight superstar, Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto speaks on his decision to join the UFC after a very succesful career in the Far East, before making a very bold statement towards the UFC’s current batamweight champion.

Yamamoto, speaking via Daily.co.jp, said:

“It’s all right. There aren’t that many great people in my class. I can take (Dominick Cruz) out.”

The Japanese star revealed that his decision was made as soon as he heard the WEC had merged with the UFC, giving 135 pounders a real chance to establish themselves in MMA.
