Sakurai is back in top 10!! Why no love?

This man is a true legend and pioneer of the well rounded martial artist, he's been buzzing around the WW and LW top 10 for a long time waiting for a big fight,now he got it. He just Knocked out the #1-#2 LW in the world with ease.

For some reason nobody is talking about that, yea he beat Aoki before but not like that, that was impressive and puts Mach Sakurai at the top of the food chain again.

I rank him as a LW #2. That win was huge!

I don't know about #2 I am assuming BJ would be #1. He certainly has the ability to beat anyone in the top 10 but I wouldn't favor him against maybe 5 of the guys in it. Gomi beat him on a fluke happening they were pretty much even up until that point so I think people need to just get past that fight in judging him and look at his record and that he finishes fights.

Lucky?? haha that was ****. If Baron didn't beat him he'd be #1 due to Penns inactivity @ 155. Mach is the man!!

You are a silly boy. Seriously.

You're still less silly than The Omen though.

TheOmen, this fight wasn't even a LW fight. Jesus.

guys he is definitely not a top lw right now because that fight was not a lw and yes he is a good fighter when he wants to be at times he just looks terrible. He looked really impressive against Aoki i cant believe he swept him like that

It isn't a LW fight because two LWs fought at WW like that really makes sense THEY DIDNT CUT WEIGHT!!!

So you are saying Mach didn't throw Gomi only for him to bounce off the ropes and happen to land ontop of him. Because that is reality friend maybe you should join me in it sometime.

Sakurai isn't a goddam LW. He's a WW.

And no. Here watch this


Gomi defended a TD attempt, took Sakurais back, beat the piss out of him, maintained top control, beat the piss out of him some more and then when Sakurai managed to get out form under him he KTFO him on the feet.

Oh nose, Gomi bounced from the ropes onto Sakurais back, thats why he won, that would have been a successful takedown had the ropes not been there! Fluke!!1
