Exclamation Rematch

I guess Sakuraba wants to avenge that whole grease gate issue!

He caught both of them with the exact same technique that isn't happening again against any decent fighter once they do the tape study. Mach was landing big shots on him over and over this guy has power and is unorthodox but his defense stinks and he will get smashed going forward if he doesn't clean up his game.

The downplaying of Mach's skills by jdun is absurd he is a borderline top 10 WW generally top 15 and has a good shot to beat most of the top 10. Alvez basically is the same fighter as Mach except plus like 30 pounds of muscle also they do the exact same thing.
