UFC-Japan winner Teruto Ishihara definitely felt that final kick to his groin

SAITAMA, Japan – Teruto Ishihara picked up a much-needed win over Rolando Dy on Friday night, but he had to go through a lot of pain to get it.

Ishihara (10-4-2 MMA, 3-2-1 UFC) took a unanimous decision from Dy (8-6-1 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 117 in Japan. The win came in part because Dy lost a point in the third round for a third low blow. Absent that point deduction, the fight would’ve been a majority draw.

But after the win, Ishihara said he won’t hold ill will – even though the third kick to the groin hurt him badly.

“The first was OK, but the (third) one really affected me,” Ishihara said through his translator. “I’m a fighter, so I don’t think it was intentional at all.”

UFC Fight Night 117 took place Friday at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, near Tokyo. The card aired on FXX.

After his win, which snapped a two-fight skid, Ishihara weighed in on the fight backstage with MMAjunkie. Check out the video above.
