Saku can do whatever he wants. he earned it. end it's not like he lost his last 5 fights or something. probably will submit Ralek - just watch.

 He's doing that which he loves to do for a large amount of money, that he otherwise can't make elsewhere.  I'll let the doctors rule whether he's hurting himself.  Kind of hard for me to tell without ever having come in contact with him and with no medical training.

No, I don't believe it's my place to tell anyone to retire. If he wants to fight, and people want to pay to watch him fight, and a doctor declares him fit to fight, he should fight.  If I don't want to watch it, I should change the channel.

There is NO WAY I will ever say no to a gracie/saku fight. period. And I think Saku wins this... stand up and strikes... gracie cant get the takedown.

 this thread is full of people who started watching the sport after 2002. Sakuraba vs. the Gracies is the best rivalry in MMA history.  Period. He's now going to take on a completely younger generation and you don't want to see him try?

Hope he learns not to stop fighting until the ref stops it. He let go as the other guy taps, then the guy wanted to keep fighting. If the ref would not of seen the tap out. He could of been in trouble.Just my 0.2But SAKU will destroy him as well.

It also technically should have been overturned due to Royce's positive roid test.
