Chinese mixed-martial arts competitor Yang Jianping took part in a match purportedly against “Japanese martial arts champion” Sakano Nozomi with fantastic results. Besides completely dominating the fight and eventually winning in an arm-bar submission at 2:37 in the first round (5 minutes per round), Yang also completed a rarely if ever seen before aerial pass on a downed opponent in a spectacular feat of agility (seen at 0:57 of the first video).

The news report has received over 3 million views on Youku with a thousand comments; despite the evenly matched debate from Chinese commenters regarding the veracity of the fight, the rating for the video is heavily in favor of the upvotes, numbered 15 thousand to 3 hundred.

Comments from Youku:

陶华碧我爱你:

Yet another great [Chinese] characteristic win-win situation for the harmonious Celestial Kingdom! The Chinese fighter won beautifully and confidently, and even though a large amount of money was invested earlier, the win has brought fresh flowers and applause, fame and honor, and more importantly, 1.5 billion Chinese people now have something to be proud of, as well as the confidence to YY [fantasize]! Even though the Japanese contestant is bruised and scarred on the outside, inside he is full of happiness, having been born poverty-stricken and unknown but now getting financial aid from his Chinese friends. His only cost is to lose a match in a foreign land, and what more, only Chinese like to watch this kind of match, as other countries would consider it beneath them to rebroadcast, so his homeland would of course never see his humiliation/shame. Now with his life’s first pot of gold [first major financial windfall], he will first book into China’s luxurious hotels, and then wildly vent his resentment from the match onto the bodies of several beautiful Chinese prostitutes, relieving the blessed sexual life his grandfather lived in China before him [during World War II]. Then, he will use this amount of money to undergo systematic training, ultimately becoming a successful fighter, and live a glorious life.

神秘野驴呀:

Well beaten, kill those fucking little Japanese!

mylove花洒:

The Japanese guy basically didn’t fight back at all?
Watching this made me clap my hands~ just looking at that Japanese’s red hair, he looks like an AV actor…

极地蔷薇舞:

Is the Japanese martial arts champion is this little punk?

很黃很暴力:

The devils now know what Chinese Sanda is.

永远的叁:

What kind of competition is this?! So fake…

那么多规矩:

[I] bet even if the little Japanese didn’t prop him up, Yang Jianping could still flip over him.

武神之影:

This fight was wonderful, no matter whether it was the technique or the rhythm. [This bout] showed us China’s advancement in wrestling [professional sport fighting].

没事偷着乐不好:

The pride of China.

Farless00:

………fake, wake up my fellow citizens. This is just someone who was paid to get beat up.

梦回龙江: (responding to above)

So when a Chinese person wins its fake but when a Chinese person wins then it must be real, right? If [the Chinese fighter] didn’t intentionally plan to use the little Japanese’s legs, then why did he jump? Watch it again a few times, you amateur!!! Are you Chinese?

Farless00: (replying to above)

Doing these low-level fights, where they find a few people to get beat up [throw fights], deceiving the people of China. The fact is, [Chinese fighters] don’t dare to participate in large scale international fights. If they were so good, they would be like Li Na competing at the highest level of competition. Closing the door and flattering “Chinese Wushu” just makes people feel sad/embarrassed.

胡健李小龙张国荣:

For that rotational [flip], the Japanese person propped Yang Jianping with three kicks, it was purely just coincidence.

20522767:

Fake or not fake, impressive or not impressive, [Chinese fighter Yang Jianping] is joining his peers in joining the UFC! May I ask if the UFC is fake too?

梦回龙江:

He wanted to flip over to the other side and indeed there was an element of coincidence but there was comparatively enough skill involved too.

Farless00: (responding to above)

You’re post-90’s generation, right? …I’ve rarely seen such mental retardation.

陆上的→鱼:

When it is a win, we should be happy. We should be proud. But not arrogant! When it can’t be won, then we should go encourage, or prod someone into action without encouragement. In reality, this is all very understandable. Everybody wants to win…who wants to lose? Just because they’re Japanese means they want to lose?
Actually, I would like to gently ask a question… Japanese people don’t want to win against Chinese people?? So they send a garbage [fighter] over? At most, this only shows one level [weight class, match up]. Always so many mentally-retarded people. Are Japanese people so willing to come over to China to lose face and let others beat them?

hwjk7521814:

I really don’t want to say it, [but are we to really believe] a Japanese champion is only at this level? Wake up [stop dreaming].

贰師姐:

[People] are spouting nonsense. So this level [of fighter] is supposed o be a Japanese champion?? Back then, didn’t we used to say that we’d crush Japan? Qie, Chinese just love to fools themselves. Japan simultaneously fought the powerful countries of the Soviet Union and the United States, whereas stupid China didn’t even know where its forces were. Chinese people just love to do this, where there is obviously something suspicious yet still willing to lie to themselves, saying this is a Japanese fighting champion.

xmgffxzh007:

Fighting champion? Fighting champion for which competitive organization?

/实话太多:

After watching the match I had to laugh; there certainly are a great number of professors and experts on Youku.

南小荡:

This Japanese person doesn’t even know jujitsu. The Japanese guy kept think it was standing rules. China, such cheaters/deceivers. Yang Jianping can go to the UFC and MMA and try, but it is [our] country that’s [holding him back] by protecting him [from failure], having found 3rd rate fighters for him to fight.

hushixun:

You’re the stupid ones. How many Chinese-Japanese matches have you seen? Have you seen high-level Chinese fighters in the K-1 leage in Japan? Did you know that the number of people who practice martial arts/compete in martial arts tournaments in our country are actually less than Japan? You traitor!

pyy81890523: (responding to above)

So what you are saying is that since China has no representatives competing in K-1, this completely proves that Chinese Sanda is no match for Japanese [fighting]? What kind of narrow method of proving something is this? The true high-level Chinese martial artists are always hidden amongst the people. Whenever China wins a match, just look at your reactions. If it isn’t that the loser was paid to throw the match, then its Chinese people fantasizing? Are your TM brains made of paste? So your meaning is that this Japanese should have won, isn’t that right?

雅典娜的圣★斗士: (responding to above)

There was a Chinese person, a heavy-weight Sanda fighter named Wang Qiang [literally: King Strong] who went to fight a K-1 match in Japan and fell to a wretched-looking, fat, bald man after a few punches…

For comparison, here is another video that shows a Chinese fighter knocking out someone also identified as a “Japanese martial arts champion”, but this time in a bout that only lasted 8 seconds long. It was uploaded a year ago and has received over 3.6 millions hits on Youku. Like the above video, it has received many more upvotes than downvotes: 24 thousand upvotes, 1 thousand downvotes. The match actually begins at the 5:04 mark of the video.

新手e念:

Fuck, too fake. So this is the skill of a champion? Fake!!!

asdfvcxr:

So fake. The Japanese fighter in the video doesn’t even look like a martial artist at all. He couldn’t be a shill, could he??? Only hitting the head, is that allowed in the rules?

568406784: (responding to comment above)

Yeah, great minds think alike.

hjbkid:

That cop must have originated from the chengguan. [The Chinese fighter was a police officer.]

周老的:

Fakefakefake

独占你的好、:

I really don’t know what the people who say this as a fake fight are thinking, you think only Chinese are watching this? That foreigners aren’t watching this??? That they’re mentally retarded? That they’d [willingly] let you KO them in 8 seconds and lose face?? You think they’re all short on money [and willing to be bribed to throw the match]?

Gentle峰:

Okay, my feeling is that it is fake… the very last punch that could be the KO punch… [it was a] left hook that didn’t connect… I watched it many times, and at best (the left hook) just grazed his head. 75 kilograms and they don’t even have the ability to withstand a hit like this??? You’re kidding me..

action71:

Please everybody, let’s not start with the “Chinese people are all NB” or the “Japanese people are all LJ [la ji, 垃圾, garbage]” comments. First of all, fighting matches have always had a lot of variables, and one match by itself doesn’t prove much. Second, who knows what that Japanese guy is really like. Constantly blindly being happy, sooner or later you’re going to suffer misfortune. To digress from fighting, wasn’t the main reason why we were bullied by little Japan because of China was conceited/thought too highly of itself? If China truly wants to perfect its fighting, then learning with humility is absolutely necessary, for example by participating in some competitions abroad, fighting without differences [in skill/level] and the like. Having said all this, do you really think this 8-second win is something worth celebrating? Everything I’ve said is truth, harsh advice may be grating to the ear, but in the end it’s ultimately good for your character/behavior. Of course, if you TMD say I’m not Chinese or something like that even for this, then I don’t really have anything more to say to you either.

Dominate and mount your partner. Personals @ chinaSMACK.
