Some of you may remember Imanari from my on-going bromance that has developed over the years on MiddleEasy. However, if you’re not into undying appreciations for other men, then you undoubtedly remember the stellar performance Masakazu dropped on Kevin Belingon at ONE FC: War of the Lions, catching the URCC champion with a reverse heel hook in just over a minute in the first round, giving him his first lost of his entire career. When it comes to grabbing legs and rendering them unusable for weeks, there’s Rousimar Palhares — and then high in the stratosphere resides Imanari, amongst a throne made entirely of ankles.
Now it appears Imanari and Emanuel Newton can attend hardcore shows together and simultaneously beat up skinheads whenever they get out of line. It’s time to check out DEEP MACS HEADBANGERS’ video ‘Rokken’ featuring Ashikan Judan himself, Masakazu Imanari singing — and crowd surfing.
