With all that said, I really wish he had a chance to fight in the modern-day UFC. He may not have won, but I think it would have helped get the UFC over in Japan (even with its declining MMA market).

That's probably the truth. a ring, or cage.

Saku strikes me as the kind of guy that will commit seppeku the day he is forced to retire. If it werent for the negative impacts it would have on the sport as a whole, i would say let the man be beat to death in the middle of the ring. It is obviously what he wants. That being said, if Dream is going to participate in the eventual demise of saku, give him some fuckin half decent matchups for christs sake. Guys like Manhoef and Zaromskis(I feel like sakuraba almost got out of that fight lucky even though he had his ear ripped off) have such dangerous strikes that all it takes is one and Saku is done for.I know at this point in his career and life all strikes are dangerous to Sakuraba, but come on. Thank god Zaromskis didnt land a really hard punch headkick combo, or Sakus ear might have been the least of his problems.

 Saku is a warrior. He'll stop fighting when he's dead.

I really wish he would have retired after beating funaki. Would have been perfect timing.

Doesn't even look remotely like the same guy who tore through the Gracies. Wand did a hell of a job on him.
