Sakuraba in the UFC

Dana White has been stating for the last few years that he wants to have Sakuraba fight in the ufc again. Time is running out on his career so who would welcome this and who do you think would make good fights with him. Personally I think he can have a good fight with pretty much anyone but discuss please.

Shamrock vs Sakuraba 2.... since shamrock doesnt know when he is finished and claimes he wasnt done when sakuraba beat him (just like every other shamrock fight)

dana should set it up...

according to Shamrock its obvious the Pride ref's were in sakuraba's favour.. so lets see it in shamrocks home now

It would be great if the UFC could get him. Really doesn't matter who he fights, just get him in the ring. But what would he fight at in the UFC, 205 or 185? Like I said I wouldn't really care who he fights, but I would like to see him take on Bisping.

Edit: It was not stopped to early, Shamrocks hands were down and his face was just laying on the ropes. Shamrock tends to complain a lot about his fights being stopped to early.

I can see him fighting at 185 if he does come. Well I respect your guys opinion but I think it was stopped too soon. He turned his back and was clearly stunned but stunned doen't mean KO'd. I'm a shamrock fan but I hav a freakin tattoo of sakuraba the guy is my hero but I would have liked it to go on

I was hoping that Shamrock vs Sakuraba would turn out like Frye vs Shamrock. Sadly, that did not happen. I really wish Saku would retire. I can't watch him take shitkicking's anymore.

Lol he's still winning through some of those beatings though. I know what you mean though he just takes some beatings and braves through it. I think at a less ridiculous weight division he would be fine though. Come to the ufc again. His ufc record is 1-o so he doesnt wanna mess that up haha

shamrock is almost an embarrasment to MMA... his outbursts and poor sportsmanship are puttin a bad name on his family..

he is a sore loser.. saku flash KO'd him.. i wish they let saku land 2 more punches so nobody could complain
