    What was the purpose of this fight? Diaz had a lot of experience going into this. What was Koji’s record at this time?

    looking at sherdog fight records he was like 11-3 with a couple of no contests when it happened. Seemed fine?

    His stance is so awkward and he looked so bad but then he fought Nate immediately after and didn't look half bad. He still had his hands low and square but moved and punched better. Beat Nate easily, countered him with a stinging straight right all night.

    Oishi is not a world beater but he definitely is a better fighter than the one who showed up that night. I mean he was 10-3 with a win over Chris Lytle, who also had good hands.

    I remember watching that fight live and being surprised by Oishi's style. I think Goldberg said that his trainer said they were trying out a different style. He was literally trying to punch Nick's punches. This was still when styles were a bit more fluid, and the before MMA became fairly standard or uniform. The style failed miserably, but the fighter couldn't have been that bad to have tried it. The guy had heart at the very least. Really odd fight.

    Maybe Joe Silva wanted to see another Japanese guy crushed.
