Nakai is considered to be a legend of Shooto by many fighters and fans.
He is the founder of the Paraestra Shooto gyms and coaches such fighters as PRIDE and DREAM stand out Shinya Aoki, who is also a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Nakai.
He was born August 18 in 1970.
After he graduated from Hokkaido Sapporo North high school, he entered Hokkaido University.
He belonged to the judo club and won the Nanatei judo championship when he was in forth grade.
Vale Tudo Japan 1995 -
In 1995, as the current Shooto welterweight champion, Nakai was selected by the Shooto Commission to represent Shooto in the Vale Tudo tournament - Vale Tudo Japan 1995.
His first opponent was Gerard Gordeau, a Dutch Savate fighter.
Gordeau illegally eye-gouged Nakai during their fight, causing Nakai to permanently lose vision in his right eye.
Despite the eye injury, Nakai proceeded to defeat Gordeau by heel hook in the fourth round.
The next fight, on the same night he came out with a bandage on his eye, ready to fight.
In his second bout, Nakai defeated the American fighter Craig Pittman by armbar, and in the third and final bout, he lost to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu master Rickson Gracie by rear naked choke at 6:22 of the first round.
Yuki Nakai became permanently blind in his right eye due to Gerard Gordeau's illegal tactics.
For years he kept his blindness a secret to protect the reputation of mixed martial arts.
The injury forced Nakai to retire from mixed martial arts competition, but impressed with Rickson Gracie's technique, he took up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, where he became the first person from Japan to hold a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and is the president of the Japanese Confederation of Jiu-Jitsu.
Nakai speaks Japanese and English.
