It's very common for people to regard Funaki as Rickson's only credible opponent. Often overlooked is Daido Juku champion Yoshinori Nishi, who won the first Lumax cup, and founded the gym that produced Akira Shoji and Caol Uno.
This is Nishi in action against Shooto founder Satoru Sayama
At 6' 205# The 1984 and 85 Hokutoki championship winner was a lot more credible an opponent than Bud Smith(!)
Here's the JVT match
Rickson deserves credit for defeating Nishi; he was a highly skilled guy.Now darkness comes; you don't know if the whales are coming. - Royce Gracie

In De Janerio, in blackest night,
Luta Livre flees the fight,
Behold Maeda's sacred tights;
Beware my power... Blue Lantern's light!
