Gong Kakutogi (Gong Mixed Martial Arts) Magazine’s August 2016 issue will feature SnK author Isayama Hajime alongside mixed martial artist/UFC competitor Horiguchi Kyoji on its cover! The crossover is subtitled “Shingeki no UFC” (Attack of the UFC) and will include an interview between the two cover subjects.
Isayama Hajime is well-known for being an MMA fan, even basing several of the characters within Shingeki no Kyojin on athletes of the sport. The physique and form of former UFC fighter Yushin “Thunder” Okami, for example, was the inspiration for Rogue Titan, while Armored Titan was based on Brock Lesnar.
