I'm glad that someone else out there believes this. This is one of those fights that will never happen, but should have.

And damn...did Guy ever get screwed by those Japanese judges, again and again.

I just watched the Mezger VS Sakuraba this morning (from 2000 GP 3 dvd set). The fight was a draw and was going to an extra round, Guy was ready to go and Ken Shamrock told him and forced him to walk backstage and then Ken had a few words with the Ref and Sakuraba. Mezger lost and Sakuraba won, wtf? Bad decision maybe, but it was still a close battle, and not one with plenty of action. I could understand why it went to the extra round, but not good enough for Ken, who knows maybe Guy would had finished off Sakuraba in the round but no instead he had to forfit ??

And what's even worse, is this happened just a few moments after Ken Shamrock announced that he was returning to MMA and just signed a 2 fight deal with PRIDE. The fans were happy to see him back and then he goes off on a tantrum and forces one of his fighters to quit?

I don't really blame Ken for blowing his top out there. Pride basically lied to them, and said that there'd only be 1 15 minute round. Well, that didn't happen, and they knew that Guy wasn't in the best shape at that time (I believe a stomach virus), so that was set-up for Saku to win. Total crooked shit, but I still consider that a victory for Guy, because he was supposed to be fodder, and ended up making Sakuraba look like garbage.

Yeah, I'd have been fkin pissed if I was Ken too. Guy basically made Sakuraba look very, very average and easily won what should have been single round fight. Guy, being the dude that he is respected his mentors decision and walked. They overturned the decision afterwards to a Draw or No Contest?

Yeah I remember that fight, I thought they announced that Guy "no longer wanted to fight" when he left the ring? It was probably the strangest ending I've seen.

The Problem with Guy Mezger is that he lost all important fights.

Some were not his fault. Pride judging was incredibly biased.

yeah ken was justified to be angry there.and i think that guy's foot had a problem in the sakuraba fight it may have been a fracture.
