NEW PANCRASE RANKINGS have been posted at the ADCC news site. I love the early Pancrase fights. The fact that the fighters wore shoes and shin guards (which left them vulnerable to leg locks) and could not hit with a closed fist led to some exciting fights where the fighters traded submission attempt after submission attempt. For me, that kind of action cannot be beat.

But, Pancrase’s distribution in the U.S. is horrible. I cannot even tell you the last Pancrase tape I saw. So, it is hard for me to comment too much about their rankings. What I can do, however, is express my hope that they (at least) get a distribution deal to sell their tapes in the U.S.
