    Personally i like these guys, always bringing something new to the table in MMA, always pushing the forefronts of there skills.

    With a team lead consisting of Shinya Aoki, the 2nd best Lightweight in the world with folks like Satoru Kitaoka and Masakatsu Imanar its hard to see these guys losing any time soon.

    So i was just wondering what you guys think about these guys (minus some arrogance by Mr.Aoki) I mean they are bringing the ground game and especially foot locks to a whole new level in MMA which i think can only be good for the sport.

    it's interesting and a nice edition to the scene

    but it seems that they rely on leg locks a lot (obviously), Imanari has been exposed by some good BJJ guys, so has Kitaoka, and Aoki is pretty good but he also had a lot of trouble with Bu Jung

    I hope one day to have 10th of the grappling ability Aoki has. I can't believe the shit he is able to pull of by just going for a sub instead of trying a combo to get close.

    Btw vulgar, just because you have a good ADCC game does not necessarily translate to a good MMA game.

    A lot of these jap fighters use a very high guard and it seems to be working for them, so change your tampon and accept it, these guys are good.

    I'm not sayin they aren't good.

    I play a high guard most the time as well.

    I'm sayin when you look at them fight they flee from the striking and pray for a clinch or just jump to guard.

    That was bullshit. It was like the guy who runs away from the fight and after its broken up all his friends are like "you killed that dude bro!"

    NTT is a great team. Great fighters with great records. Anyone who says otherwise is a hater.

    This coming from the biggest Aoki basher here.
