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...

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

DrVanNostrand has a little shameless behaviour in the past
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

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.

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
