Fights of the Day: Masakazu Imanari vs. Robbie Olivier + Joachim Hansen

Masakazu Imanari‘s featherweight title defense against Jean Silva at Saturday’s Cage Rage show seems to have been pulled from every video site on the Internet, so we’ll just post the video of how the “Ashikan Judan” (“10th-degree black belt in jumping locks,” or something) won the belt in the first place. Check out Imanari whiffing on two ridiculous flying kicks before tapping out Robbie Olivier with the kind of submission that earned him his nickname, at Cage Rage 20 in February 2007. Below that is Imanari taking one of his four career losses, at the hands of Joachim Hansen at PRIDE Bushido 8 (July 2005). Despite nearly pulling off one of his signature leglocks, Imanari eats a knee at the video’s 3:34 mark that’s so loud they could hear it in the next prefecture. Like a veteran home-run slugger making perfect contact with a fastball, Hansen just walks away, knowing it.

That is the knee that defines "cold hearted".

Premature stoppage - looked like he could have continued despite eating that knee like thanksgiving dinner.
