06:28 PM ET 10.28 | MMA fans have long awaited the UFC debut of Japanese lightweight and featherweight journeyman, Tatsuya Kawajiri. Kawajiri has fought in almost all of the major promotions from Pride to Dream, Shooto, and Strikeforce. Last week, the UFC finally signed Kawajiri, but did not announce a debut fight. After being asked who he wants to fight in his UFC debut, Kawajiri called out Cub Swanson. Hiroyuki Takaya, another fellow Japanese MMA fighter, lost to Cub back in 2008 at WEC 37. Kawajiri made note that he would like to avenge his friend's loss to Cub.
