Rin Nakai hasn’t fought for nearly two years. But the UFC veteran is waging a battle of a very different sort, she is being targeted by online trolls in Japan.
Nakai took to Twitter to complain about the situation in a series of posts this morning:

For those of you who don’t understand Japanese she says an online troll has been repeatedly making malicious posts and comments about her and her coach Kancho Usami. Nakai was last seen in action at Deep-Jewels 26 in 2019 and has spoken about her ambitions of getting back in the UFC.
She appeared twice in the octagon but came out second best on both occasions and was subsequently released. But the 34 year old has not lost since, putting together a six fight winning streak that includes a win over Kanako Murata.
We hope Nakai doesn’t let the trolls prove too much of a distraction. She is just as famous for her costumes as her fights and we can’t wait to see what she wears to her next weigh in, whenever that might be.
