Ken Shamrock vs Kazuo Takahashi - Pancrase: Truth 1

Classic Shootfighting match Bart Vale vs Lato Kiraware K.O.

Pro matches run 30 minutes non-stop, amateurs 10 minutes. Held inside a standard wrestling ring, competitors are allowed to kick, knee or elbow any part of the body except the groin, as well as headbutt. Punches are allowed to the body. Since no gloves are worn to facilitate wrestling, punches are not allowed to the head through open hand palms, but slaps and punches are allowed. Any type of throw or takedown is legal and competitors are allowed to hit a downed opponent. Additionlly, any type of joint lock is legal as are chokes against the side of the neck. The only foul consists of punches to the face, eye gouges, techniques against the windpipe and groin strikes.

I believe this bout was held back in 1992 in Japan. Lato was a great competitor. This fight was a lot of fun. Enjoy.
