I'm not sure about the various names in the Japanese article, since a lot of them can have several readings and no furigana is provided to clarify. Somebody who is a little more knowledgeable about the puroresu scene will have to fill in. Gwalla | Talk 22:38, 4 May 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Wasn't Chris Dolman Dutch? I kind of remember him being former coach of Dirk Vrij and possibly Hanse Nyman... Vytzka 07:51, 30 March 2006 (UTC)[reply]


Did RINGS start up again? See hateless 07:00, 11 December 2006 (UTC)[reply]

different rules from MMA[edit]

I think it is noteworthy that RINGS has similar rules to New Jersey Unified Rules of MMA except punches to the face of a grounded opponent are illegal. -- 02:29, 11 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Title Belts?[edit]

I have seen at least one list available at [1] which lists three title belts in RINGS, the Heavyweight, Light Heavyweight, and Middleweight championships. Given that Fedor Emelianenko is such a huge name in the sport, I am wondering why I've never heard of him holding this title.

1998/01/21 Kiyoshi Tamura Won 1997 Battle Dimension Tournament to become first champ 1998/05/29 Bitzsade Tariel Sapporo 1999/05/22 Kiyoshi Tamura [2] Tokyo 2000/04/20 Gilbert Yvel Tokyo 2000/05 VACANT Yvel jumped to Pride 2001/08/11 Fedor Emelianenko Tokyo Beat Bobby Hoffman in tournament final 2002/02/15 PROMOTION CLOSES

I haven't seen any other mention of title belts in RINGs. Also, upon further research, it seems that Fedor fought Renato Sorbral, not Hoffman. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:54, 27 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Clarification of professional wrestling and MMA eras.[edit]

I think the article requires clarification and citations on when RINGS stopped being a puroresu company and swapped to MMA, if it ever did. --TrickShotFinn (talk) 19:58, 28 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Ok, I think I sorta got the gist. 1995-1999 era is kinda like Pancrase's 1993-1996 period where they sorta pick and choose what are real or worked fights.

  • 1991-1994: Shoot Wrestling style Pro Wrestling/Maeda's UWF continuation
  • 1995-1999: early Pancrase-style "selective Pro Wrestling/MMA fights."
  • 1999-2001: KOK Rules/MMA proper

'nuff said. -- TrickShotFinn (talk) 09:19, 28 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
