Justinmacd - Does Saku need money? Why does he keep fighting?

 He loves it? Not to mention he can still win.

I think its fine as long as he loves to do it. I really doubt he needs the money. Ralek Gracie isnt likely to give him any brain damage.

Its is crazy how Japanese MMA continues to decline.

Dream 14 is at the level of an MFC card

gravy talk -  I think the Gracie's are gonna keep throwing themselves at Saku til one of them beats him.



Technically Royce beat him at K-1 Dynamite back on 07. But I think it was a 3 five minute round fight, not the old Gracie rules.

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

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 0.2

But SAKU will destroy him as well.

 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?

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.

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.

Well I personally find it sad that an all time great takes a beating from someone like Zelg Galesic.

Hes hurting himself

 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.

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.
