Akiyama wasn't "completely pounding" Misaki lol.
Also, illegal soccer kick? NC was the only real way that could have gone, Akiyama had the soles of both his feet on the ground, he really wasn't down at all. He had a hand resting on the mat, thats all.
Saku will whomp Tamura after Tamura whomps Funaki. That will basically undoubtedly solidify Saku as the greatest Japanese MMArtist of all time. It shall be awesome.
I actually think Tamura beats Saku at this point.
Sakuraba should be the greatest Japanese MMA fighter of all time regardless.
