These are some of my favourite shoot style stuff. Def. all worth checking.
-Yoshiaki Fujiwara v Super Tiger (aka Satoru Sayama the original Tiger Mask- who was stupidly better here than he was *as* Tiger Mask) (UWF 5/12/84)
-Masakatsu Funaki v Yoji Anjo (UWF 14/6/89)
-Volk Han v Andrei Kopylov (RINGS 16/7/92)
-Volk Han v Mitsuya Nagai (RINGS 24/4/93)
-Volk Han v Kiyoshi Tamura (RINGS 25/9/96, 22/1/97, 26/9/97) (None of these go over twelve minutes IIRC, but the last two are pretty much a couple of the best matches ever)
-Yuki Ishikawa v Alexander Otsuka (BattlARTS 28/2/97) (Really ridiculous for only ten minutes)
-Kiyoshi Tamura v Tsuyoshi Kohsaka (RINGS 27/6/98) (Last time I watched this I thought it was '98 MOTY)
-Kiyoshi Tamura v Yoshihisa Yamamoto (RINGS 21/9/98)
-Yuki Ishikawa v Daisuke Ikeda (BattlARTS 26/8/99) (99 MOTY)
-Yuki Ishikawa v Daisuke Ikeda (FUTEN 24/4/05)
-Yuki Ishikawa/Alexander Otsuka/Munenori Sawa v Daisuke Ikeda/Super Tiger II/Katsumi Usuda (BattlARTS 27/6/08)
Dd that off of the top of my head, and looking at that list, I need a serious overdose of 80s UWF. I know there's matches I haven;t even listed that I've seen, but they shouldnlt be escaping my memory like that. I should mention that UWF is different to RINGS and so is BattlARTS. Not extremely different, but yeah.
If you want mroe recent stuff, Takeshi Ono was apparently on a roll last year. I can't comment on that because I've seen...nothing from him since 2009, and honestly Ono annoyed me while watching his 90s stuff so I'm not as motivated.
