Man, i love Saku like family. On more than one occasion his fights have brought tears to my eyes, i am seriously and emotionally invested in the guy. haha. but, and it's a big but, there is no way i consider him the best to ever fight in the sport.
First off, there have been fighters -- most notably Rampage -- who have outright stated they were asked to lose to him by Pride officials. It's hard to elevate a fighter to the best ever what that sort of stigma hangs over his record.
Secondly, heart simply does not equate to skill and while Saku possesses a ton of natural skill... his biggest asset is his unbreakable will.
Long live Saku... but no, he is not the best ever.
