A lot of folks refuse to give Nakai respect because of the lack of big name victims on her resume. After the way she treated Tara LaRosa this past weekend in Kanagawa, that is likely to change.
The undefeated Queen of Pancrase ended her fight with a bang when she pounded away on the #1 ranked P4P female in the world en route to a Majority Decision (30-28, 30-29, 29-29).
Nakai ups her record to a perfect (15-0-1) with this victory over a now (21-4) LaRosa who has dropped 3 in a row if you want to count her exhibition fight on TUF 18 against Sarah Moras.
