It's a bit funny that in 90ies Japanese wrestling there were quite some ex-Soviet guys doing shootstyle and looking good so considering that there is no pro wrestling tradition in the former Soviet countries at all (or at least that I know of). I guess demonstration events in Sambo are not an uncommon thing.

Interesting contrast here--the big, bruising Tariel works quickly during the stand-up portions, while the smaller quicker and lighter Tamura has to slow things down. Usually in wrestling it's the opposite. Tariel is big and impressive throwing strikes but the mat portions are almost like Tamura wrestling against a log. It's kind of too bad Tamura had no interest in wrasslin' because he's charismatic and broad and theatrical and smart and would have been a tremendous pro-style worker. Another Shootstyle for People Who Hate Shootstyle special--Tamura is pretty much a lock on the Most Outstanding Wrestler list this year.

Tariel Chris Webber's himself and loses the match going for a rope break when he had none left. Simple but effective match layout. Tariel was a bruising, straight ahead and relentless. It is all stand up. Tariel is clearly uncomfortable on the mat and doesnt have great balance. Tamura gets most of his early takedowns because Tariel lost his balance. Tamura can't do much even when he get his back. Rinse lather repeat but as Tariel fatigues Tamura can get his takedowns and get heel hooks and choke. You see how useless Tariel grabs a front chancery and can't hold on. Tamura slips out and rear naked choke. Tamura wins with protection when Tariel grabs ropes when he doesn't have any left rather than tap out.
Great early UFC match. ****
