'I was deceived in various ways' – Ex-UFC star Yoshinori Horie claims he performed sex act on man to fund MMA career

December 29, 2021

FORMER UFC star Yoshinori Horie has shockingly revealed he performed a sex act on a man to help fund his MMA career.

The Japanese star, 26, has suggested he was talked into the 'painful' experience by a friend five years ago.

Aged just 21, the budding martial artist claimed he went through with the act to earn £130 – more than he would have pocketed in two days at his part-time job – to help kickstart his career.

Sharing the story with his 14,300 Twitter followers, Horie claimed: “Five years ago, when I was with a friend, I was told that I could get money [for a sex act] in Shibuya.

"I followed him… I was told to hide my face…

"I was deceived in various ways.

"I didn’t have the money and I really wanted to do martial arts on my own."

Featherweight fighter Horie continued: “I got 20,000 yen (£130) in less than an hour, but it was pretty big!

"I was able to start martial arts in a short time, exceeding the amount of two days of part-time work that I do for eight hours while standing.”

In a separate tweet, Horie – nicknamed the Rising Star – called the experience 'painful' but was happy to be able to 'chase his dreams'.

He continued: "It’s pretty painful now, but as long as I’m alive I can chase my dreams.

"And I like women…

"I’ve earned the money to live to do martial arts.”

Horie boasts an MMA record of 8-2-0, including five KOs – most-recently losing to Hakeem Dawodu in July 2019.

He has won his last three fights in RIZIN, including his victory over Hirotaka Nakada last month.
