Miller submits Sakuraba at DREAM.16

by Trent Reinsmith | source:

Jason "Mayhem" Miller made quick work of Kazushi "Gracie Hunter" Sakuraba at DREAM 16.

During pre-fight interviews Miller stated, "I want to show everyone that I am stronger. I hope to be the first man to submit Sakuraba here in DREAM."

Sakuraba answered Mayhem with, "I have tapped out lots of times during training. It's just that nobody has submitted me in a fight. There are lots of fighters who have the ability to submit me. I always try to be one step ahead of my opponent though so I'm not concerned about his comment."

Perhaps Sakuraba should have shown some concern, as he was tapped out just 2:09 into the first round of their fight.

With the victory Miller's MMA record stands at 24-7 with a DREAM record of 2-1. Sakuraba falls to 26-14-1 in his MMA career and 3-3 while fighting for DREAM.

Sakuraba -- who had not asked out of a fight since a July 1996 encounter with Kimo Leopoldo -- met his demise inside an arm-triangle choke 2:09 into round one, the crowd looking on in stunned silence. Miller sprawled on Sakuraba, smacked around the Pride Fighting Championships veteran with right hands from half guard and moved into position for the finish. With the choke locked in, Miller passed to the side and solicited the tapout from the 41-year-old Sakuraba, who has lost four of his past six fights. The choke will get the headlines, but Miller’s ground-and-pound assault on Sakuraba was something to behold. Never seen a prediction go so well,. Miller called it and delivered
