Ok so, before we begin, if anyone has links to streaming vids or dls, please do post. Also, Sakuraba’s K-1 debut is on youtube
Now, I have to say I was less-than-impressed by Saku’s performence. I love Sakuraba but he got the paste beat out of him and is fortunate the guy gassed out.
He did show lots of heart and veteran calm and experience when getting beaten on and later in securing the armbar. I hope he comes in during his next fight in better shape/better prepared. I suspect he will get either Akiyama or Oyama next.
I have heard Hideo Tokoro v. Menjivar was the fight of the year so far and would like to see it. I would also like to see Gesias’ fight and Kaoru Uno’s. Any fights would be good, however.
