Frank vs Saku in 2000 would've been the greatest fight in MMA history.

Man, such a shame that never happened.

my brother has always raved about Sakuraba and i must admit, he will always be the man. doesnt matter who you put in front.. back in the day, he would smoke them or at least, come close..

i honestly think that Rickson should fight him just so that Saku can beat the legend and cement hes legacy.

Shogun is my homeboy.

He was fighting way out of his weight class most the time, which made it even more awesome. His striking wasn't so awesome, but his wrestling/subs where amazing and cerebrial.

i agree nobody does it like Sakuraba did... the 90 minute fight alone is enough to make statement like that
I guess age,chain smoking and injuries caught up with him. I was very sad in his Manhoef fight, that was totally unneeded - mucho respect to him for trying though

Hope he pulls of one more good win and leaves fighting alone.

He's like the MMA equivalent of Pavel Bure. Excelled at the highest level during his career, but didn't manage to have the longest career. Never faded away, just always left the fans wanting more. For the record, Pavel Bure is my favorite athlete.

LMAO at "The Scientist" being used in the highlight video.

he is definetly my favorite fighter of all time he pretty much got me into mma. It's sad to see him how he is now. Maybe he wasnt the best fighter in the world but he was entertaining as hell and very inspirational
