    I didn't make a thread about this before, mostly because I feel there are obvious cultural differences between North America and Japan. But, it's pretty obvious there is a large difference in charisma between guys like Gomi, Kid and Sudo and then Saku.

    Sakuraba fans are always taking about how funny and charismatic he is, but it's crap. At the weigh-in for the last K-1 Hero's event, he put an X-BOX 360 under his clothes...hilarious :rolleyes:. Don't lie, you would call someone like Tim Sylvia an idiot if he did something like this.

    Also, don't forget all the extremely awkward fight entrances where he dresses in a costume and then awkwardly walks down to the ring. It was almost embarrasing in his fight against Arona.
