The Fight Nerd caught up with one of the busiest men in MMA, Mauro Ranallo, who was a commentator for Pride FC, Elite XC, and Strikeforce, and currently commentates for Glory Kickboxing and Invicta FC, as well as being part of the english commentary team for AXS TV’s New Japan Pro Wrestling show, premiering January 16.

In part two of this three part interview, Mauro and I break down and review NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 9, by running through the show and the great matches there, and discuss why we think Shinsuke Nakamura VS Kota Ibushi stole the show. We also discuss what is next for Hiroshi Tanahashi now that he has retained the IWGP title and the threat that AJ Styles poses for that championship, and more on the differences between Japanese pro wrestling (puroresu) against the American product.
