Sakuraba's is great but he isnt #2. On any list Wand MUST be ahead of him.

But Saku shouldve been a weight class below Wand. Thats like saying Cro Cop must be ahead of Wand.

Wandy would probably TKO Frank in the third.
Wanderlei was the force in mma until Arona and more importantly when Cro Cop split his head open. His schedule was too much if you ask me. I still would be interested in seeing Silva vs Shogun, just because I know it would never happen now.

Frank and Sakuraba where the best in each promotion at the time. I have a load of Shamrock dream fights (in his prime).

Why shouldn't Sakuraba be number 2? He's an influential figure in MMA, and helped make Pride what it was. His accomplishments are amazing.

Sakuraba built Pride. He beat the famed Gracies and was THE Japanese icon, not Takada or some Judo stars. He also made stars out of Silva, Lil Nog and Arona. It's hard to watch somebody so great get demolished but it's the cycle. I hate to compare it to pro wrestling but it puts over new talent. Like Shamrock did to Tito and most recently Chuck did for a new fan base to follow Rampage Jackson.

2nd best has to be wandy most of his fight are exciting and isnt that part of mma and dominating pride for 5 years being the champ,wot other lhw would face the likes of crocop,hunt bigger guys and trade with them, for me its wandy.

saku vs frank shamrock would have been a killer fight!!!! saku whooping everyones a$$ at the time and frank doing the same in the ufc. it is a shame frank wasn't in it longer

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.
