Sakuraba needs to retire. He's taken way too many beatings. I don't want to see him be the first death in sanctioned mma.

It would be nice if he could fight Tamura, win and then retire, but I think he'll probably take another beating. Also, if he won the fight, he might make the foolish decision of carrying on. A lot of fighters make that mistake. It takes some losses to make a fighter see that it's time to bow-out. It takes more for some to realise than others (yes, I'm looking at you Evan Tanner!)

Tamura can still move around the ring well, and can actually throw a decent kick. He'd whomp Sakuraba, simply because Saku is so far gone that it's not even funny. Not to mention that Tamura is a solid fighter and has a really underrated ground game. So, I don't see Saku pulling off a slow ass, old man sub.

Saku! Please man! Just retire, so your fans don't have to cry over the physical pain you have to endure each and every of your recent matches. PLEASE man, PLEASE! Continue teaching at Chuteboxe, let the next generation take over!

I'm on my knees, begging you.

Meh, I wouldn't agree with that based on their performances against Funaki and those two young pro-wrestlers.
