    Wow what a crazy display of heart on Sakuraba's part and horrible reffing from K1. He was rushed to the hospital after the fight and was unable to attend any post fight interviews and now it's uncertain whether or not he'll be able to fight in the next round. For those of you haven't seen it it's on youtube.

    On another note I think you can really see Chute Boxe's influence in his game. It's too bad he's not younger because I'll never get tired of watching him fight.

    wow, I can't believe they didn't stop the fight sooner. He took 8 or 9 shots to the face before he pulled into the ropes. Its cool that he won though. :bigthumb:

    yeah he is gonna have some brain damage from that, it definatly was over but when you are saku they ref gives you too much respect, same with promoters over there and DSE laying him out against wandy all those times.

    I love Saku to death, hes one of my fav fighters. But there were several times that the fight should have been stopped. I can't believe that he won that, props to him for pulling it out!

    yeah that was fucked man, saku was out on his feet and was able to pull it out because his opponenet gassed completely out trying to finish it. brutal, really bad reffing IMHO

    Yeah he went to Brazil to train with them a while back before he fought Shamrock. There are a bunch of videos and pictures floating around on the internet. Maybe you can find something on youtube :dunno:
