Remember how you used to walk on your ankles and could do fun stuff like put socks on them…maybe throw on a tattoo if you’re a girl (or a Mets fan)? Well Masakazu Imanari will cut short all of that ankle fun you’ve enjoyed your entire life in a way that will have you screaming and tapping out in complete awe. Imagine if Brazilian jiu-jitsu had a bastard cousin, one that only gets let inside the house on weekends and sleeps on towels. This bastard cousin was named ‘Tourettes Jiu-Jitsu’ and was only taught to Masakazu Imanari. That pretty much sums up his method of removing all mobility in your ankles. Dude is the only guy that can pull of sitting in the middle of a ring and still get the win (or at least he should have). If you love personal mobility, stay away from Imanari. Let me reiterate that for all those people that don’t know what the word ‘mobility’ means (stay in school kids). If you don’t want to spend the rest of your life in a Hoveround, keep your distance from Masakazu Imanari.
Last night/morning, Deep 47 Impact went down in Japan and if I told you that Imanari lost his Deep bantamweight belt to Isao Terada then I would be blatantly lying to you. Imanari managed to land an upkick on Terada early in the third round and finished the fight with a triangle-to-armbar submission. Don’t be surprised that Imanari is quietly mowing through the bantamweight division, just be sure to cross the other side of the street when you see him. [Source]
