Diaz vs. Sakurai - who you got?

Who you got and how?

This is very hard for me to choose. I'm a big Sakurai fan but I question how much he wants it at the moment, I question how hard he is training, I question his gas tank in this fight. He also got caught in a guillotine and subbed in his last fight with Baron

I really hope Sakurai wins, but I might have to pick Diaz in this fight, we saw how much Gomi gassed against Diaz, could Sakurai suffer in the same way?

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Sakurai looked like crap in his last fight and Diaz has looked like crap in his past few fights. So I have no idea.

WOW!!! Everyone is going for Diaz. People dont realize how overrated this guy is. I guess Diaz's 2 impressive victories over Robby Lawler and Gomi >>>>>>>>> all of Mach's 12 years of hard fought battles

As a dedicated Diaz hater, I'm obviousely going with Sakurai. Anyone who can beat Aoki is okay in my book. I think he is going to have problems with Diaz' chin and gas tank though. I can't think of another more impressive list of LW victories than Mach, aside from Gomi:
Mac Danzig
Jens Pulver
Joachim Hansen
Frank Trigg
Caol Uno
Shinya Aoki

Neither can I, but those are in the past, it's what Sakurai is like now that matters, I hope he still has it.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

Ya, that was possibly the worst Sakurai we've ever seen. He just looked unmotivated and sluggish, and fat. lol. If he comes out that sluggish against Diaz I think he's just going to get picked apart, but who knows.

Ya he really confused Aoki or out-muscled him or something, cuz Aoki couldn't really pull off anything or even come close. It was a pretty close fight though. Aoki actually showed some of the best ground and pound I've ever seen from him, and some cool throws.
