JAPAN VALE TUDO OPEN 1994 - 7/29/94 (Perhaps the first major MMA show ever held in Japan, this was designed as the Japanese showcase for Rickson Gracie - and it worked. He comes away looking like a king here. I've got a master convert so VQ is EX.)
Bud Smith vs Chris Bass Jan Lomulder vs Kenji Kamaguchi (JIP) Kazuhiro Kusayamagi vs David Levicki Rickson Gracie vs Yoshinori Nishi Rickson Gracie vs David Levicki Rickson Gracie vs Bud Smith (Finals) ??? vs ??? (After the credits roll, we get another fight...) Satoru Sayama vs ??? (Exhibition - yes, the same Sayama that was Tiger Mask. His Shooto group was responsible for this show, so he's here in an exhibition.)
