Slow News Day Video: Shinsuke Nakamura's Last MMA Fight, How Did He Fare?

Since it's a slow news day, we thought we'd post this video of Shinsuke Nakamura's last MMA fight. Not only is Nakamura one of the greatest wrestlers in the world, he also had a brief MMA career that saw him finish 3-1-1, with his only loss being his debut to Daniel Gracie in 2002.


Nakamura also battled Alexey Ignashov in December 2003, in a fight that went to a no contest. They had a rematch five months later, in what would be Nakamura's last MMA fight. Despite being at a significant size disadvantage, Nakamura managed to submit the 6'5" Ignashov in the second round with a forearm choke.

You can watch the bout in the video above at the 44 minute mark.
