[2000-05-07-ARSION] Aja Kong vs Mariko Yoshida

Recommended Posts

Yoshida matches up well with Aja because even though there is a huge size difference, her ability to look on and string together submissions make her still seem like a threat. Here she runs her submissions well for the first couple of minutes until Aja start striking away. From there, Yoshida is on the defensive even though she is still able to get some hope spots. Spinning backfist is still deadly. ***1/2 (6.8)

It's always a pleasure to watch Yoshida work and this was no exception. She did some cool shit on the mat with Aja which isn't something you see in most Aja matches. I love how she struggles to lock her fingers around Aja's large torso. Yoshida was always great at those sort of touches. It's a shame she didn't get the submission from that chokehold. That would have been cool.

We get seven minutes of a ten minute match, and it’s criminal how short this is. Absolutely criminal. We get a bit of a reprieve from the usual Aja match as Yoshida stymies her with submissions and technical wizardry, but the size difference is too significant and Yoshida eventually succumbs, as most women do, to the Uraken.

Rating: ***¼
