Fighter Signing: Keita Nakamura (Japan)

17th March 2012

Former Sengoku Welterweight Champion Keita “K-Taro” Nakamura becomes the latest elite Japanese fighter to join the Legend roster.


Tokyo native Keita “K-Taro” Nakamura didn’t begin training in martial arts until he was already 18-years old, but he very quickly made the transition from the gym to the ring, winning his first professional fight at the age of 19. Over the following three years Nakamura went undefeated across 17 fights, finishing 10 of those opponents in the first round. Primarily known as a submission fighter, Nakamura has proved that he is just as dangerous on his feet, and showcased his lethal striking en route to winning the Sengoku Welterweight Title in 2010. Now a member of one of Legend’s most competitive weight classes, Nakamura looks forward to showcasing his skills to the Legend fans, and added this message to the audience: “If I put on a boring fight, please make sure to boo me.”
