Kensuke Sasaki & Katsuhiko Nakajima vs. Takashi Sugiura & Atsushi Aoki 24:24. Sasaki & Sugiura fired up for the expected brutal war. They worked a lot more than I expected, and neither was willing to back down, so it was pretty intense. Still, it was pretty clear that Sugiura was the angrier more blistering beast, and I was very impressed by the way he was just laying into everyone. It would have been nice if he could have combined that with any sort of offense beyond strikes, but I guess you can't have everything and I certainly prefer the new savage Sugiura to the old one who did a few slams but was only imtimidating on occasion. Sasaki was typically clumsy in points and the extra weight isn't helping him, but this is what he does well, and he was working hard with opponents who were into doing his thing, so it was among the best of his recent matches. Aoki was the weak link because his strikes were so feeble compared to the others. Granted he did his best to avoid trying to be something he isn't, but even though his technical and action oriented work with Nakajima was good, he wasn't enough of a change of pace to make up for it. It was still a nice match with Aoki, but if you added the typical Nakajima vs. Mochizuki stuff to what Sasaki & Sugiura were doing it would have been an excellent match for sure. ***1/2
