[1996-01-24-RINGS] Mikhail Ilioukhine vs Wataru Sakata


Recommended Posts

Perfectly solid opener and probably the second best match on the card. Ilioukhine looked very dominate throughout, grabbing neat holds with his legtrap waistlock and side STF. Wasn't the cleanest match-up -- Sakata isn't great and doesn't have much fan support but he's able to grab a few decent sleeper holds and has a top moment of the match with his shoot enziguri that drives Mikhail's headfirst into the mat. After Sakata whiffs big time on a spinning heel kick, Mikhail taps him with a sick calf crusher/choke combo.
