I have a question on Imanari

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ls8MM...eature=related

What the hell did he do to this guy?
I was hoping like Ironman or someone could explain.

Also, He rules, so this can be his appreciation thread.

Yes, but Kimuras aren't meant to be done on knees lol.
I was wondering if anyone had seen or come across this move before.

Also, I am a little surprised at the lack of Imanari love on this forum.

Imanari rules. He just doesn't get as much credit as he deserves because he fights mainly in DEEP, which doesn't get much press. He was on the receiving end of a sick knee from Joachim Hansen at one of the Bushido events, but Hellboy fights 10 pounds heavier than Imanari.

I saw his fight at Cage Rage 20, and he put on a swank armbar. Dude is very good, but he's made a habit of losing his big fights: Mishima, Auerelio, Hansen. He submitted Jorge Gurgel, which may or may not say much depending on your opinion of Gurgel.

Here's the loss to Hansen:

Here's the Cage Rage fight, for the FW Title of CR:

Here's the Gurgel fight:

If you watch any of those, make sure you see the Cage Rage one, the armbar is ridiculous.

It would be impossible not to like him with his style. Who doesn't like flying kicks and knees, and amazing leglocks?

I'd love if he fought in the WEC.

Also, poor dude, he was doing pretty good in the Hansen fight.
Heres a HL of him that is very cool

Yeah I'd like that too. I wish all the good Asian FW's would come over so we can finally see who the best is. As of right now, its Faber and Curran here in the States against guys like Imanari, KID, Inoue, Tamura, Carvalho, and Hoiki fighting around the world. I just want to see them all fight.
