Rewatching Big Nog VS. Yokoi...

Yokoi went down hard to a knee from the clinch that visibly missed. Just wondering if there was any insight as to whether it was 'working' or an attempt to pull guard. Big Nog's the last person I'd want to pull guard on Phone Post

Interesting. In for answers. Phone Post

 looked like he was expecting the knee and falling to his back to get out of the clinch and not absorb the blow.

theres someone who didnt live up to the hype.

 There was hype?

Oh, there was hype.


Some hype from the Japanese media being that Yokoi was a Japanese Heavyweight who was NOT a prowrestler and may have had some ability, but no one on this board seriously considered Yokoi a threat to Nog at the time.
