    5 rounds in the cage at 185.
    I have GSP via decision, but in a very close fight.

    Sakuraba not smart enough to out gameplan GSP. People like him because he beat some one dimensional Gracies back when the name wasn't worthless and had balls 10x the size of GSP's and would fight anyone, but Georges safety first St. Pierre was a better athlete and fighter.

    Saku was ahead of his time.

    But GSP got to learn in a more evolved era.

    Not a fair comparison.

    GSP wasn't stupid enough to believe he belonged in there with Aroma or Wanderlei of Crocop thus GSP has a 10x more functioning brain

    Theoretically, Prime GSP (170 pounds) wouldn’t make weight; prime Sakuraba fought at 205, HW and Open weight

    \thread for Sakuraba via awesomeness

    Sure but any beta cuck who's smart enough to never get into a fist fight and never get punched has 10x more functioning brain than GSP, so having a better brain isn't something any prize fighter should really be boasting about.

    False, GSP would never have accepted the fight.

    Saku would take him down easy and would tap him out with a oldschool Toehold. Chuteboxe Saku would knee him to the death, georges

    They actually very much should . it's an amazing accomplishment to retire from combat sports with a functioning brain. Saku will never know what that is like.
