Pretty much the UWF equivalent to the later RINGS grappling matches. Funaki in his shoes is hilarious. Really enjoyed the early amateur style work especially the toe holds. Then, after some slick but strugglesome grappling Suzuki goes on a tear against Funaki with tight submission attempts only to be caught by surprise. Little too short and sudden to amount to much but I always enjoy a fun undercard match like this.

Yeah, this was a fun watch. Good stuff on the ground, with Funaki showing some nice control early on as Suzuki tries to find an opening, then Suzuki working through some holds before Funaki snags the leg for the quick submission.
