Akiyama vs. Sakuraba Declared A No Contest
 
The Japanese Connection: Akiyama Broke the Rules - MMAUniverse.com

Apprently video showed pre fight footage that showed him "greasing" up his legs. He insisted that it was a skin cream for dry legs, but it was analyzed and found to be oil based which is illegal. Score one for Sakuraba...

good. i got called crazy for saying saku got cheated.

Well, now there will probably be a rematch. I don't know if it's a good or bad thing though for Saku.

he'll probably still get beat up...but it will be a fair beating. :thumbsup:

it was so dramatic...saku said that he was unhappy and unwilling to accept K-1's decision...and two judges were suspended and a significant amount was taken from their purses...glad its been resolved though...

I tried to aoid here as long as possible because of my disgust but I watched the fight again and it's so clear his legs are greased. I said this to my mate on first viewing and he didn't agree, score one for Saku indeed

Split 02-23-2007 06:28 PM

sorry if this is old, but did the greased legs really bother saku? and why would judges be suspended? i dont get it

TheGracieHunter 02-23-2007 09:05 PM

Yea Saku is known for takedowns via the legs so throughout the fight he couldn't grip onto his legs which left him open to a pounding on the ground. He complained heavily during and after the fight and the referee did nothing.

but he didnt go for legs at all, until he was down maybe..

TheGracieHunter 02-25-2007 12:30 PM

He constantly goes for the legs man, watch it again. He tends to wait until he takes a hit the duck down for a leg
