    haha that such a random thing to make a highlight of..

    i honestly think silveira is ugly on the ground. i know hes a bjj black belt and such, but he looked so ugly on the ground in this fight. he held onto that kimura for like half an hour while sakuraba spinned around for the armbar

    Had Saku kept going in the UFC, I don't think his career would be where it is today. They probably would've prematurely stopped most of his fights like that.

    Watching Saku fight now makes me want to cry -- I wonder why he won't retire with of his brain damage and all.

    Had some problem with blood not getting to his head/brain. Some damage to his neck. He had to pull out of a fight last year b/c he was laying in the hospital from this injury.

    It's just that they know he'll clutch after getting smashed on.
