RINGS RISE 3RD - 5/22/99 (Another good show from the post-Maeda era. Some fun KOs and good matches to be seen here. VQ on this is EX.)
Yasuhito Namekawa vs Sara Umer Hiromitsu Kanehara vs Valentijn Overeem (This is sooooo stupid - Kanehara does a takedown on Overeem who hurts his knee. So they stop the fight to allow Overeem to recover. WTF? Overeem uses the time to rest and is able to hit an awesome high kick to the back of the head to KO Kanehara. STUPID.) Volk Han vs Masayuki Naruse (***) Joop Kasteel vs Iliokhine Mikhail TSUYOSHI KOHSAKA VS YOSHIHISA YAMAMOTO (Terrific match) Kiyoshi Tamura vs Bitsadze Tariel (Tamura wins the RINGS title in a decent work)
