Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Tomoko Morii to concentrate on MMA, joins FIGHT CHIX
Former Ito Dojo pro wrestler Tomoko Morii announced today that she plans to take a serious run at MMA. She has joined the FIGHT CHIX dojo run by women's MMA pioneer and pro wrestler Megumi Yabushita. She says she's not sure how much pro wrestling she will do. She will discuss that with Yabushita. Morii has been a pro wrestler for about five years and was trained by Kaoru Ito. When Ito announced the closing of Ito Dojo in October, Morii left the company. It is rumoured that Ito will start a new company with Joshi puroresu legend and former NEO owner Kyoko Inoue and Morii is supposed to be part of that company. Maybe not. Morii's MMA record is 1-2 and her last fight was a loss to Alexandra Sanchez on the Dec. 11, 2009 JEWELS show. Her normal fighting weight is 60kg (130lbs). I expect to see Tomoko Morii fight for JEWELS in 2011.
