Big mistake by Kawajiri. Now when Gilbert takes him down or holds him against the cage he wont be able to escape.

""He's been training as usual and no specific training geared towards a fight in a cage," Kawajiri's translator Ryo Ishibashi said on a recent Strikeforce conference call."
He has trained some in the cage, maybe the quote is saying that there was nothing special about the training since he does train in the cage. [pic] But nonetheless he is at least mildly familiar with it.
Jiri shouldn't be compared to the other Japanese fighters who made the transition from Ring to cage IMO. His style isn't like that of Aoki and Gomi, and actually his style transitions well to the cage. Mean wrestling, sick top control, and a n@sty clinch game.
And can you really blame Aoki and Gomi's recent stateside MMA woes to being in a cage instead of a ring, or are they just terrible style match ups? Melendez may be the worst match up for Aoki on paper (a powerful, relentless top control grappler with great submission defense) and the formula to beat Gomi has always been relatively simple, gas him out, take him down and submit him.
