    Nice video, and what a career.

    I think a lot of historically minded fans consider the Sakuraba vs Rickson matchup to be one of the biggest what-ifs/missed opportunities in the annals of MMA.

    Saku would wreck rickson and his rudimentary striking and bad takedowns.

    Renzo's face when he realises he's buggered! I've never watched it in slow motion before. One of the all time great moves in MMA.

    Saku is one of the best natural grapplers I have ever seen in MMA.

    Nice video and great breakdown. Two legends and IMO, Renzo is the warrior in the Gracie Family.
