[1997-09-26-RINGS] Akira Maeda vs Andrei Kopilov


Recommended Posts

This isn't great but it has its moments. I mean, at this point, Maeda is turning out anymore classics and the whole thing is pretty sloppy but the fans are eating up the Maeda show. His cross heel hold is the first legit submission threat to Kopilov's existence. I loved Kopilov catching Maeda's leg scissors sweep with the wristlock, and then dropping down into the armbar. There is laughter among the fans. It definitely seems like Kopilov is giving Maeda plenty, and he pops the boss with a couple of good palms but overall, it's Maeda on the leg, per usual. But the sleeper finish is a surprise...kind of.
