 Would be amazing if this went down.

http://fightsportasia.com/2012/05/10/aoki-vs-sakuraba-japanese-legends-fight/ 

Discussion thread for this prospective fight.

God I hope they pull it off... will be amazing. You simple yanks don't appreciate Aoki's fantastic lightweight CV anyway, and Saku's record looks like Shamrock's, so another loss for either man (at catchweight) wont really hurt their legacies.

This could be special

 Wish it had happened just when Aoki was on his way up. Saku's my favourite fighter but I don't enjoy his fights anymore.

Aoki wins easily. Saku is a broken old man now, more sad to watch than anything. Even fellow oldies like Kikuta and Kondo would probably beat Saku handily, let alone a current high-level fighter like Aoki.

Aoki wins no problem. Sakuraba is so shop worn by this point in his life. He should not ever step foot in the ring again if you ask me.

Didn't read properly, thought this was a prime v prime.
saku should retire, his last meaningful victory was against Zelg.
He's a legend and has nothing more to prove Phone Post

It really is a bad situation. He is up to 16 losses and he was finished in 12 of them. If Japan had athletic commissions like the US, I doubt he would be cleared to fight.

No... No. Just no. I love Sakuraba, I really do, but I have no interest in seeing him fight anymore.

Gary Goodridge was licensed to fight for Affliction when he had nearly 40 losses and MMA and K-1 combined, most of them were by KO/TKO. I don't remember athletic comissions suspending anyone's license in MMA unless it's for PED use.

 Saku should only compete in submission tournaments, he's a legend with nothing to prove and everything to lose. His 3 losses to Wandy changed him, he's never been the same physically and I suspect mentally since then. Have a bottle of Saki and hit the mats, no need to get in the cage/ring anymore.

If Saku is going to keep fighting, I would much rather see him put up against other submission experts instead of KO artists.

I can stand to see him tapped, but not KO'd.

Fuck...

Why is Saku still fighting? He is one of my favourite fighters ever, but Aoki will murder him.

Why can't Sak just stay retired?... He has nothing more to prove...

I got mad love for Saku, but I don't wanna see him fight no more, especially against someone like Aoki. He's taken more than enough damage in his career. I wish the man would just rest, his skull will thank him 4 it.

Saku is one of the greats. I hope he pulls a freak win and retires on that. It would be so beautiful I might shed a tear.
