Desription .........  Known for gaining victories using his leg submissions, it’s no wonder that mixed martial arts fighter Masakazu Imanari is known as the “Master of Leglocks.” In fact, 70% of Imanari’s victories since entering MMA in 2002 have been leglocks. Imanari has also put the heel hook, kneebar, armbar, and toehold to good use. As of July, 2008, Imanari is the featherweight champion in both the Deep and Cage Rage promotions. Early on, the scrappy fighter excelled in All-Japan Combat Wrestling Championship Tournaments.

Imanari trains with master grappler Shinya Aoki, and competes with Team Roken in Kanagawa, Japan. Imanari has defeated Danny Batten, Mike Brown, Jorge Gurgei, Yoshihiro Maeda, and Jean Silva in a variety of matches for Pride, Pancrase, ZST, DEEP, and Cage Rage. At Cage Rage 20 in February 2007, Imanari became the Cage Rage featherweight champion by defeating Robbie Olivier with a flying armbar. In the May, 2008 issue of the UK magazine Fighters Only, Imanari has said he hopes to fight in the UK to defend his title, and expressed interest in fighting as a featherweight with the DREAM mixed martial arts promotion, where trainer Aoki has “very good contacts.”
