Yeah, that was funny, he was seriously worried that we would assume that. As if, if there were two gay fighters in the ring they would be kissing. His initial reaction was what most guys would do, it was a violation of his space.
Japanese commentators: "Ahhhh kano di wateniobe....not a homosexual, ahhh homosexual."
It was quite a romantic moment. It may mess with his head, but it doesn't make the Japanese guy look tough. I just find it funny that this big Billy Badass was all intense and ready to go, and the guy counters that with a warm embrace.
