INOKI BOM BA YE 2002 - 12/31/02 (The third Inoki Bom Ba Ye show overall, and the second one to feature MMA fights. This is a pretty entertaining show, run under the watchful eye of Pride. I've got a master, so VQ is EX.)
Jan Nortje vs Tadao Yasuda Daniel Gracie vs Shinsuke Nakamura Wallid Ismael vs Yasuhito Namekawa Gary Goodridge vs Mike Bernardo (K-1 Rules - Bernardo is best-known as the opponent of Nobuhiko Takada at the 2001 Inoki Bom Ba Ye show. Here he's back in his K-1 element and nails a big KO on Goodridge. After that, in a moment right out of Professional Wrestling Heel Behaviors 101, he goes over and poses with one foot on Goodridge's limp body, inciting a near brawl in the ring. Awesome!) Quinton Jackson vs Cyril Abidi (K-1 Rules) Mirko Filipovic vs Kazayuki Fujita Hidehiko Yoshida vs Masaaki Satake Bob Sapp vs Yoshihiro Takayama
