[1997-05-04-Kingdom] Masahito Kakihara vs Yoji Anjo


Recommended Posts

Loved this match-up in UWFi and it's still a blast. Tons of big strikes and competitive groundwork and of course, Anjo being a dick. There's a moment when Kakihara tries to cinch the leg on the ground and Anjo straight up drops his knee into Kakihara's face and starts pounding away. He grabs a pretty gnarly looking armbar but can't fully cinch it in and Kaki's able to respond with a rear choke. Loved Kaki's straight punch to Anjo's face and Anjo's reaction. Then he gets head kicked but of course, Kaki misses the wheel kick per usual, which leads to Anjo getting some retribution. The finish was a lot of fun with underdog Kaki surviving the deep choke and armbar but when Kaki tries for the single-leg takedown, Anjo turns it into a Fujiwara armbar and taps him.
