There could be many reasons. Maybe they are father and son?
I kinda sure that he is Yamamoto's son.
And I predicted that Yamamoto has to fight with him and can win the match but he can not kill his son(again) and cause Yamamoto was attacked by him.
So Ichigo has to fight with him instead.
PS. The charactor of Yamamoto was made for showing the enemies' strength, not to win the enemies.
It's recall me to Netero in HxH. ^^
What are your thought on Yama's pride stopping him from killing the leader? I mean, seeing the Leader was not as powerful or rather worthy, Yama found no motivation to kill him.

Orihime powers have always been used inconsistently. If she can deny an event, like giving GJ his arm back, why its not been done for Yama. Its a discussion for a different thread though. So far, a connection with the Leader is the most plausible theory. I cannot help but thing, Isshin will have involvement in the past events.
Indeed. He lost his arm in a battle, there is no shame. Is anyone else thinks Yama may actually die this time? We already saw a good guy died.
[OffTopic] this is going a little of topic but its for a good reason, okay i have a question about the way Zaraki obtained captain status, does that only work for the seat of 11th squad captain or is it the same rule for all captains even CC?
[Ontopic] if my questions answer is actually for all seats then if buckbeard beats Yama won't buckbeard then rule SS.... this would then cause wide panic and also the royal guard to be callled would it not?
^^ Even if there's such a rule, I don't think it would apply to VR leader because he's an outsider. The theories about VR leader fighting Yamamoto for CC position 1000 years ago are interesting though. Perhaps he was one of Yamamoto's trusted men before they came into conflict about how SS should have been governed and he challenged Yamamoto to a fight and lost but Yamamoto couldn't kill him for old time's sake.
