Should Sakuraba Retire?
I know there are fighters his age (38) who still compete successfully at the top level, but after watching the Manhoef fight I'm starting to think that Sakuraba should retire. Of course he's a decent competitor, but he'll never again be a serious contender. His best days are behind him IMO and because of the way he fights, he's taken a hell of a lot of punishment over the years. I'm worried that if he continues, he's just going to face more punishing defeats like the Manhoef fight and maybe get permanently damaged. Should he "call it a day"?
