    BAck then everyone wanted to fight rickson. Saku was so crafty I wish Pride didn’t try To kill him by having him fight the best at heavier weight classes.

    I member.

    Rickson was offered like 5 million.

    Considering he has a record of 7000-0-0

    He probably should have taken it.

    He declined probably because the offer was to take a dive.

    I wouldn't be so sure , Sakuraba was a very crafty fighter that was very unpredictable , no doubt Rickson was the far superior grappler , but Saku was alot more versatile.

    It's been said, that Rickson once took on all his brothers AND cousins at once, and won.

    It’s really a damned shame that Rickson didn’t take Royce’s role.

    Yup.


    He supposedly said Saku lacked warrior spirit and didn't deserve to fight him. Fucking clown.
