RINGS MEGA BATTLE '92 1ST ROUND - 10/29/92 (Terrific show from the early days of RINGS. Some really good, realistic action to be found here. I've got a master convert so VQ is EX.)
Dimita Petikov vs Vladimir Kravchuk Hans Nyman vs Georgi Kandarahki Herman Renting vs Willie Peeters (Looks like a pretty legit match til Peeters taps out to a choke that Renting hasn't even finished applying) Andrei Kopylev vs Sotel Kachiev (*** - some excellent matwork here. Kopylev gets a round of applause in the locker room after the match.) Dick Vrij vs Nobuaki Kakuda Chris Dolman vs Grom Zaza Masaaki Satake vs Mitsuya Nagai Akira Maeda vs Volk Han (I don't understand the logic of throwing away your best matchup in the first round of a tournament. Makes no sense. Good match - ***1/2)
