When he first debuted in K-1 there was a lot of hype in Japan as Kyokushin had been "locked up" for so many years. When Filho Shihan was knockouted by JLB many Kyokushin guys were shocked and I can still remember some of the article titles. He was the first reigning world champion to be sent straight to canvas. Shocking but it changed the way many people in Japan thought of Kyokushin, not necessarily in a negative sense.
Kyokushin is still very popular in Japan but the "fantasy" (since the 70's) has gone.
I don`t think that Filho had such an ridiculous carrer at K1..........

Legend: Win Loss Draw/No contest Notes
Was he the greatest K1 champion?....NO far from it..............did he represent kyokushin well?....sure he did. Is kyokushin an unbeatable art and is it ggoing to make you a superman if you practice?...NO.and I feel sad that people even consider that childish aproach to any martial art.........Is kyokushin an effective art for stand up fighting and street fights?....YES it is extremaly efficient.
I have the deepest respect for you kakatootoshi for everithing you represent in this forum and for your huge amount of knowledge concerning martial arts, but, please do not bash kyokushin or Filho because he lost to JLB......only people who have the guts to step in the ring lose...those how never lost are the ones that also never acomplished anything because they never took any risks. Many fighters hide behind an past title or hide behind an martial art reputation or behind the "I would kill him if I go for real" attitude and never try to prove their skills..........and Shihan Chiquinho did risk his neck by competing at K1, outside his confort zone, and even now being a kyokushin shihan he is humble enough to try something new and started training BJJ as a white belt (recently he got a blue belt).
