    Masakazu Imanari will never be remembered as one of the great mma fighters of our time, but he is without a doubt one of the most entertaining grapplers i have ever seen in the sport of mma. His submission victories are absolutely legendary and awe inspiring to watch.

    2017 represents the first year he has not competed in a match since 2002. He is now 41 years old and i doubt he has many fights left

    Let us remember and respect how awesome his fights were



    PS: Its a pretty slow news day, why not venture back to an awesome fighter's highlight reel

    That highlight was a treat to watch

    Imanari just sticks to people like glue when rolling for a leg. He is able to get submissions from almost any position and a lot of his subs seem a bit unorthodox or improvised.

    Thanks for sharing, he is ridiculously single minded! The flow is so good

    Always remembered his name after watching a clip of him ripping Mike Brown's leg though never saw his highlights

    Was wondering if it would be Funaki or Palhares.

    I remember watching Imanari fight, but never left a big impression.
    Always good to watch highlights though

    I remember back when Jean Silva was the poster boy champion at Cage Rage. He then fought Imanari who ripped his knee out in like a minute, and the head of Cage Rage looked super salty when he was giving the belt to Imanari, the goofy Japanese that few people in the US knew. It was beautiful.

    I support this thread.
    I wish we had more leg lock specialists in the UFC. Ryan Hall is probably the best one right now, but he is nowhere near as explosive as Imanari was.
