While I don't think Baki's Funimation dub is anything to write home about, Matthew Tompkins is in my opinion the single best thing to come out of it. His voice is sharp as a knife and oozes with equal parts charisma and arrogance. He somehow manages to sound unlikable while also commanding attention. It's an excellent fit for someone like Yujiro.
Kirk Thornton is an excellent actor and his Yujiro is very lively and Kirk does a good job really reveling in himself, as Yujiro should. Unfortunately, I don't think the particular voice he does is the ideal. Kirk is no stranger to deep and gruff voices, but instead he goes for this whispery, raspy one that just doesn't convey Yujiro's great strength. Hopefully if/when the next season of Baki gets dubbed he can switch this out for something more fitting.
As it stands right now I think Matthew Tompkins is the superior Yujiro.
