    He didn't win much in America, but was great in Japan. Do you think he was actually a good fighter?!

    He's 41-8-1 with wins over Kawajiri, Hansen, Alvarez, JZ, old Saku, Uno, and others. He is fairly one-dimensional and often wears funny pants but I'd say he's definitely quite good.

    Also he only had 3 fights in America and lost two of them to very good competition (Alvarez and Melendez).

    Yes, he was good. Only lost to some beastly guys like Gilbert and Eddie.

    Very one dimensional though, but deadly with that one dimension.

    Good in reality.

    Overrated on Sherdog.

    If his name was Bob he'd be a "can".

    A lot better with the pants. More friction.
