    I hope we can someday see a sparring session between Inoue and Loma. Would pay PPV to see that

    That was incredibly one sided wow. He really is a special fighter, the fluidity of his reactions both defensively and offensively that he blends so well truly do make him the monster they say he is.

    What kind of madman would spar an Inoue who is wearing black and yellow? Black and yellow are warning colours in nature and indicate danger and not without good reason either :facepalm:

    That being said, I enjoy watching Inoue spar more than I enjoy watching most other fighters fight.

    Two of the most exciting fighters in the game. The difference being one is larger and very likely an ATG.

    Chuck, have you seen this video of Hozumi Hasegawa vs Kosei Tanaka? Even a retired chunky-gawa almost equals Tanaka on the combo speed challenges lol. They also do a light spar and you can tell Hasegawa sees the counter opportunities. Inoue, like Hasegawa, is a freak reactively.

    Also, a lot of Japanese fighters have YouTube channels. Even Guts Ishimatsu has one and he's in his 70s.

    Beautiful. The way he was finding gaps was a thing of beauty. Real instinct and high ring IQ.

    Thanks for sharing.
