Enson armbarred Couture in the main event. BJJ was becoming obsolete around this time, but Enson was still tapping high level opponents from his back.

JJ Machado was destroyed by Trigg in the same card:

Awesome kayo. Sakurai was easily the #1 170er around this time, even though he looked closer to 155 or 145 standing next to Trigg.

Those were exciting times in MMA. I was learning BJJ at the time, but for some reason was always rooting against BJJ, LOL

RE: Japan Vale Tudo 98 Opening
yeah many of the BJJ guys are annoying

many not all, lack budo and seem to be complainers

BJJ also has a cult-ish type of vibe that is absent in other disciplines like BOXING, JUDO, KARATE etc.
