  1. Simple, smartly worked undercard match. The opening is full of lock-ups, headlocks, fighting for positions, defence spots etc.-they mix in some strikes as well, do enough to keep you interested but not enough to garner a reaction outside of a polite clap here and there. They naturally bridge that to the escalation of the finishing stretch where they go all out, laying in brutal palm strikes, knees and doing a bunch of swank submission counters. ***1/4
  2. This match was basically: gauging>legwork>peril>comeback/finish. Gauging was fine, as it is usually in these types of matches, but there was nothng particularly interesting here. The legwork consisted of Miyato doing the same low kick again and again to Burton, which was fine I guess. Match became interesting once Burton started selling the damage, and him throwing Miyato around later on was also fun. Wasn't big on how they treated Burton's knees, like they do some damage but nothing significant as it rendered most of his offence meaningless. **3/4
  3. Miyato may not be a wizard on the ground but he's capable enough to follow better opponents. This was designed for Yamazaki to get his heat back after losing on the first UWFi show and Miyato was a pretty good opponent to put him over, lots of very exciting stand up action and brutal kicks and knees. Highlights on the ground were Yamazaki grabbing some cool leglocks and an amazing spot where Miyato countered Yamazaki's leglock by just kicking him in the side of the head which looked almost disgusting. Almost. ***1/4
  4. Lots of goodness here. Match started of pretty slow but I find it muche easier to concentrate when wrestlers are fighting for position, gauging the distance for striking and generally acting like they are actually fighting than when they just grab a hadlock for five minutes. Early highlight was Nakano busting out a shoot DDt, but things got out of control once Miyato broke Nakano's nose with palm strikes, then the transitioned to a cool subplot of Anjoh and Nakano hitting each other with illegal elbows and they finished the match off with Anjoh and Yamazaki blasting each other and Yamazaki's awesome selling of peril where he gradually acted weaker and weaker before going down. ***1/4-***1/2
