Well that's not what he says. I fly the tricolore for Sakara on the UG like a one man legion with occasional partners.  He even listened to my plan for the Cote fight. I emailed him to say don't leve it to the French Canada judges, get that Cote outta there as fast as you can. I think my strategy was a good one.5 more fights

Delusional. Did someone put some drugs in your lasagna or what?Sakara would be ashamed to call you a friend and ally. You give other Sakara fans a bad rap.

Stann only can beat Sakara when he comes back after an injury, an illness, 2 more injuries and 2 surgeries. He would die to death againt the Savage Sakara that showed up to fight Cote.     Middleweights: Have eyes in the back of Your head.....Sakara is coming

You forgot the part where the ALL AMERICAN Brian Stann comes in and puts Sakara to sleep and has him dreaming about Olive Garden bread sticks and spaghetti.

UFC promised an event in 2013 for Milan. Somebody better be a scare, because Sakara is on that card, unless he gets sick or injured. I still think it's a curse.
