Kiyoshi Tamura vs Josh Barnett-U-STYLE 23.11.2005.

I really enjoyed the opening portion with them battling for positions and Barnett attempting a few cool leglocks but the match just went into another dimension once Tamura hit Barnett with a big counter knee. 151 more words

Josh Barnett vs Shinichi Suzukawa-NEW 5.4.2017.

This was pretty good. The matwork wasn’t anything special, it was more about the violence, Suzukawa would headbutt Barnett while mounting Barnett, kneeing him when he was in a side mount, Suzukawa would get Barnett in a Double Wristlock from the bottom and Barnett would escape by just pummeling him with body shots, it made it much more interesting than if it were them just rolling around.We also got some nice throws, whenever they’d stand and exchange shots the match ruled, and there were signs of a great match when they’d start shoving each other into the corner and desperately fire away, which felt like something out of WAR. 41 more words
