This is a HUGE fight for Phil!!! Best opponent he has faced in awhile...wow...a win against Sakurai would absolutely resurrect his career! On NYE in Japan? Wow!!! HUGE fight!!

Japan loves MMA...that country went through hell...takes time to get get back on their feet. Amazing what a catagory 1 hurricane did to us here in NY...I couldnt imagine an earthquake, a sunami, and a nuclear meltdown all at once! Baroni has a following in Japan from his Pride days. A win there on NYE over Sakurai would be an amazing jolt for his career. Tough opponent but interesting fight after seeing Phil in his last fight. He looked awesome! I'm really looking forward to this fight.

Blaming the downfall of Japanese MMA on the Tsunami? That's definitely a new one and definitely an illogical strech

NO no...you're taking what I'm saying incorrectly. Let me clarify. Pride was the best MMA organization...ever. The Japanese culture is deeply rooted in fighting. WAY more than American culture. They respect the battle, warriors who go to war and fight with passion. MMA will thrive again in Japan. The UFC stole alot of thunder when they bought Pride. And if you think all that has happened in Japan over the last couple years hasnt effected every aspect of their society you would be mistaken. I'm in no way "blaming" natural disasters for the decline in MMA popularity in Japan...just stating facts. MMA will go through a big revival in Japan. Its a warrior culture. The people respect the fighters, they respect the battle. But for the moment the BIG $ is here in the UFC. The fighters will follow the $...its as simple as that. But that country loves MMA

2002 called and wants its fight back.......

just kidding (sort of), both are super exciting fighters

Sakurai was one of my favorite fighters of all time, he lost steam when he got thrown up against American wrestlers that cut weight

Hopefully we do see a top level org spring up in Japan once again, but for now Japanese MMA is pretty barren
