It seems like every MMA, BJJ and submission grappling competitor has a highlight video nowadays, and I’m going to share my favorite one with you. The competitor is Masakazu Imanari, who fights in Japan at 145 lbs. If you haven’t already seen it, check out the video below:
One reason I like Imanari so much is that he is unique. No other MMA fighter is so focussed (fixated?) on leglocks and pursues them to the extent that Imanari does (except, maybe, Rudimar Palhares).
Styles make fights, and although Imanari isn’t always going to win he makes fights very exciting. The bottom line is that I won’t be going to the bathroom when Imanari steps into a ring.
