ZST.20!! Olympic Combination Vs. Team ZST

The first fight for ZST.20 which takes place on May 24th has been announced and it is an exciting one. DREAM Lightweight GP participants Kazuyuki Miyata and Katsuhiko Nagata will team up to take on SENGOKU Featherweight GP participant “Super High School Student” Tetsuya Yamada and “Mini Hong Man” Masayuki Okude in a 15 minute ZST Lightweight Tag Team match.

Both Miyata and Nagata participated in the 2000 Sydney Olympics in Amateur Wrestling (Nagata in Greco and Miyata in Freestyle). Nagata won a silver medal.

Update: The names of the teams are Olympic Combination and Team ZST.

    I’ve never understood the concept of ZST tag-team matches. How does it work exactly?

    When a team member tags in the ref stops the fight, the fighter who tagged in goes into the ring, both start from their corners like a normal MMA fight starts, and the ref starts the fight again.

    You can tag in even if your teammate is caught in a submission.

    When a fighter loses his teammate is the only one left. If both fighters in a team lose they lose the fight.

    A good example is Tokoro’s tag in at around 6:19 here:
