USA Today reported that Hidehiko Yoshida retired after a match in Japan against chief protege Kazuhiro Nakamura. Yoshida has been one of Japan’s most popular fighters since he won a Gold Medal in the 1992 Olympics in Judo. He lost to fellow Olympic Gold Medalist Rulon Gardner on New Year’s Eve 2005. Yoshida was rumored to be preparing for a fight against Fedor Emelianenko as his retirement bout, but it appears he wisely made the decision to scrap those plans.
