    MMA DieHArds Radio: Tara LaRosa

    in Sports

    On this episode of MMA DieHards Radio, hosts Jason Kelly (Twitter: @JayMMADieHards) and Joe Rizzo (Twitter: @rearnakedchoke) welcome back Tara LaRosa.
    LaRosa (Twitter: @TaraLaRosa) recently competed against Rin Nakai at "Pancrase 252: 20th Anniversary" in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.  LaRosa and Nakai went to a decision, which resulted in controversy.  LaRosa appeared to have done enough to earn the judges' decision, but, in Japan, it's tough for an America to seal the victory and that led to Nakai picking up the win.  Though, LaRosa was disappointed she left The Land of the Rising Sun without a win, she did enjoy many of the things Japan had to offer.
    LaRosa also talked TUF 18, shared funny stories in Japan and revealed what she'll sell for $1,000.  Listen up! This is a classic you do not want to miss!
