The Yoshihiro Akiyama shirt for UFC 116 is Dethrones “Overthrow” Shirt. It features a cool design of a king that is blindfolded. It is symbolic for Dethrones’ brand as well as symbolism of MMA fighters striving to take out the champ in their division.
Akiyama is known by his legion of fans as “Sexyama”, a nickname he earned because of his signing and modeling career. And because he married a supermodel. Akiyama was originally slated to fight Wanderlei Silva at UFC 116, but Silva had to pull out 2 weeks prior because of broken ribs.
