Fk that fgt
Fuck that, i can last longer in bed then that match and that isnt saying much.
it's kind of an interesting fight
it's probably better than Fedor vs. Zulu or Hong Man Choi
you're a Sakuraba fan and you're criticizing someone going out of their way to take a challenge that might leave them brutalized....
gtfo thats retarded, Fedor won't have any more random freakshow fights for a while, if ever again.
I can also barely last longer than 30 seconds
Olympic Judo gold medallist does not equal freakshow.
Yes, Sakuraba knows nothing about MMA, he isn't the Gracie Hunter and he has no notable wins, especially none over such as a previous UFC LW Champion.
(And I wanted Sakuraba to retire a while ago)
this guy is a Judo champion at the appropriate weightclass...Sakuraba fought a lot of completely retarded fights in his career
also, remember how Bu Jung almost submitted Shinya Aoki twice, without any MMA experience?
the fact of the matter is that this would be a huge draw, and ur gay
no need to state the obvious
Shinya Aoki suited that guy perfectly because um.. well.. HE CAN'T STRIKE? The Korean guy was outstriking Aoki for christ sakes
Yeah it's totally the same for that Judo champion against Fedor because Fedor isn't going to strike him AT ALL!
Sammo, you dum dum dum.
You stay out of this
It'd probably go down like Ogawa.
I watched butterbean vs. cabbage last night.
That was an awesome fight.
I really hope this shit doesn't happen. I do think that Fedor has a slight disadvantage with a tight clinch and his takedown defense at least before wasn't entirely that good. I think even if that Judo guy could take him down, that's pretty much it for the night on his part.
Are you being serious? I haven't seen it, but I can't believe it's good either LOL.
Nah it's pretty rad. Cabbage beats the fuck out of bean... at one point bean takes out his mouthguard and spits out a tooth, and then they keep fighting.
I mean, it's not the world's most technical match, but it's just a good show.
That does sound pretty good . Any link? or I guess the usual suspects should have it.
it made me think that UFC is missing something by not having freakshow fights.
I mean, you don't want to have as many as K-1 does, but 1 per card, if arranged properly, can really add something.
I guess lesnar comes close.
Lesnar is pretty much a freakshow. I know a lot of people don't like them, but I do enjoy them. When I started watching them in Pride I thought it was stupid, then when like a little guy would beat a huge guy it was so much fun to watch. I think it would hurt the sport at least in North America. Actually I dunno, but I have a feeling it would be spun to make it seem unsafe.
With no striking, wrestling, bjj... I'd say its a freakshow based on his recent Judo accolades. What has this guy done in MMA to earn a fight with the best?
