Fight Week with Gokhan Saki in Japan


The UFC debut of Dutch-Turkish kickboxing icon Gokhan Saki has garnered loads of attention this week ahead of Fight Night Japan Friday night on FXX.

Saki has been inactive the past few years since his kickboxing career came to a halt. He was looking for renewed motivation and he's found it in mixed martial arts.

Here's a quick tour through his first official UFC fight week, beginning with a warning for the light heavyweight division he gave to UFC Facebook earlier this week.
