    Surprising, he was Pride's poster boy for the longest time. K1 tourney should be easy for him, last few years in Pride he has taken some severe beatings. He should definitely hang it up soon - or else he is gonna regret it when he is older. BTW where is a good site for downloading K1 events?

    He's the reason why I started training two years ago, I don't know if this is good or bad. But I'll support him through thick and thin!!!

    WAR SAKURABA!!!

    This has much to do with DSE's recent legal problems. I actually thought he (along with several other fighters) would actually retire when shit hit the fan, so I'm pretty suprised at this as well.

    I've also heard that Saku will be fighting in his actual weight class instead of 205 finally. I think he will do very well in K1.
