TAPE 707

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 2 hrs (DVD)

U-STYLE AXIS - 11/23/05 (After a hiatus of almost a year between pure U-Style shows, the group returns with one of their biggest shows ever. This is a good one, well-worth getting. I've got a master, so VQ is EX.)
Kyosuke Sasaki vs Katsuhisa Fujii Hiroyuki Ito vs Wataru Sakata Kazuki Okubo & Hidehisa Matsuda vs Luis Aceredo & Yashuhito Namekawa Carlo Morais vs James Thompson (Some seriously horrible striking in this one, with both guys terrified of hitting too hard. The result is a soft-as-a-pillow joke.) Frank Shamrock vs Daisuke Nakamura (Frank looks good in his worked-shoot debut. Not a great match, but promising. Let's hope we get Frank vs Tamura!) Toshiaki Kawada vs Mikhail Ilioukhine (Fun to see Kawada in U-Style!) Kiyoshi Tamura vs Josh Barnett (At ***1/2, this is much better than I ever expected. They work a really nice finishing sequence and generally impress. A very nice match.)
