There are more Leo celebrities than there are of any other Zodiac sign. But Yoshihiro Akiyama is really living the Leo dream. He is HUGE in his native Japan, where he is known as “Sexyama”.
He is a musician (his cheesy ballads are sung frequently on national television) model (mostly suits) and a top 10 globally ranked U.F.C. fighter/mixed martial artist.
His signature move is a judo throw trip takedown. His vanity, particularly about his hair and sunglass collection, is legendary. But any fighter who figured that might equate to some sort of weakness has regretted it.
Plus he’s got a degree in Commerce. Clearly, he does not suffer from Leo Self-Limiting Syndrome.
He makes theatrical entrances to his fights, reveres fashion and stages fantastic press events. If someone were genetically engineering Leo celebrities, Yoshihiro Akiyama might just be what they’d emerge with.
