Imanari is getting no love...we might have to all get matching avatars and try to spread the love.

I guess no-one here watches DEEP. I am surprised at the lack of Damone in this thread TBH. If no-one else I thought he'd be in here.......

Whoa whoa, I love me some Imanari and his swanky dank leg locks. I even have his "Super grappling" dvd. The guy is a beast.

To answer the original question, to ME it looked like an inverted Heel Hook. Im pretty sure that is what it was.

Yeah, I didn't think he put any pressure on the ankle at all. It definately looked like he bent the guys knee out of place.

Man I wish there was some BJJ guy or Submission wrestling guy who had seen that before and knew what it was. Maybe only Imanari Knows.

Gurgel had 2 knee surgeries after the fight. In fact, they had to rebuild the ligaments with tissue from a cadaver. A guy I know trained with him for a month and overheard the story.

Imanari is the reason Gurgel was hurt on TUF. Apparently his knee is a recurring injury now.

Question: How is the knee injury coming along?

Jorge Gurgel: I’ve been busting my ass trying to get it rehabbed but I have to be smart about it. I have been staying off the weight training and concentrating more on exercises that involve stretching out the area. I want to go about things in an intelligent manner. My projected return to competition should be around mid- January so even if the offer was made, I don’t see myself being able to compete in the “Ultimate Fighter” finale.


Question: Can you describe the nature of your injury?

Jorge Gurgel: I entered the competition with no ACL all together. The ACL is what keeps the knee together. During the show, they aired footage of me getting fluid drained from my knee. That actually happened about 3 times during the course of filming. Several doctors advised me not to compete. Besides me wanting to fight more than anything, I also felt that my team was counting on me. After the fight was over, I immediately went out and got surgery on it.

Jesus......I'd probably tap out the second he got hold of one of my legs.

Add another fan to the love-wagon.

Although I dont follow him that closely, I love his style, hes so squirmy and doesnt really give you a chance to relax. I remember one fight where he was getting his ass handed to him and he just rolls into a knee bar and messes the dude up.

The Imanari Wagon is on the go!


The omore I think about this guy, the more I really like him. Sure, he might not be about to take out Faber or Pulver, but hes damn cool and he would be a welcome addition to the WEC.
