    Hayato “Mach” Sakurai (30-7-2), former PRIDE Lightweight Grand Prix runner-up, expressed his desire to become a UFC champion. UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra and UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva were mentioned as combatants against whom he would like to be matched.

    Following his introduction to the United States audience by UFC president Dana White, Sakurai conducted several interviews over a seven-day period. He said "the [UFC] contract hasn’t been signed yet, but there are fighters in the UFC I would love to fight.”

    against Anderson, it might go the way of Gomi vs. Mach

    like Arona, Mach's leg kicks are brutal. i wish he'd utilize them more though, seeing how he connects a lot, and he snaps his kicks so he doesn't spin when he misses

    he's just lucky that PRIDE noticed this and set the fight weight limit to 164 just so he could make weight :o

    every source says he could easily cut to 155 its just that the man despises cutting weight. apparantly he barely cuts to make 160.
