    Sazaki took like 20 elbows in that fight, but he was calm as hell. kinda like sakuraba but alot slower. he really cought dean a whole bunch of times, and i was surprised to see dean so desperate at the end and failing submissions so many times.

    yeah both of them gased really bad, i thought sazaki threw some good punches, but lister won it with the submission attempts. I was also impressed with sazaki at how he got out of the submissions.

    Sasaki's fight with Lister was awesome! I was UBER impressed with his submission defense especially against someone with Lister's pedigree. It was a good fight and it's nice to see an Azn guy not getting tooled on UFC.

    Lister gassed, but in the second round he was really close to finishing the triangle. I think that he actually could have done it if he wanted to but got too confident and didn't and payed for it.

    more like dropped, walked, or stumbled into lister's guard.......... it was bizzare. Sasaki was game though, much better than I or anybody probably anticipated.

    Less conditioning, more cutting 20 points to fight.

    I think Lister's now-smaller body was having trouble supporting his massive head.

    Entertaining fight. We were wondering if Sasaki was stoned.

    Dude would have won the fight if he could have followed up the punches in the 3rd. Lister was just waiting to go down.
