    The Igor and Sakuraba HL are what really got me into MMA back in the day.

    If you don’t think it’s impressive you’re a hater.

    We have champs now that’ll turn down a fight if they don’t have a full training camp to prepare.

    In the NHB era and like these tournaments Igor participated in, sometimes you didn’t know who your opponent was or how many people you would be fighting that night. Didn’t know if it was some 300 lb guy that had 100 pounds on you and what not. Their was a lot of uncertainty in terms of what could happen and what to expect when you fought. Much more dangerous than current times.

    I'm inclined to believe that he can still knock plenty of heads CLEAN off.

    In the early to mid 90's of MMA the sport wasn't even at the stage where you could call anyone a can.

    You never fail to surprise how fucking stupid someone can get. Beating Kerr, Saku means regional fighters, if that? Wow..

    Leaving a fact that you're ignorant of a subject and never watched old UFC/MMA fights, here's a question for you to think of:
    Since when size EVER mattered in HW division?

    How many of the 9 opponents he beat in a month were Sakuraba and Kerr’s level? How many of the 14 opponents he beat in a year were Saku and Kerr level?

    How many times were you dropped on the head as a child?

    It matters when deciding if a fighter is good or not. I mean theres exceptions,like when Fedor blitzed Sylvia,but hey he caught him off guard w that shit. Varleans didnt get nothing done against lil igor. Just got his ass whupped over an extended period. Yeesh.
