    Now that the 'Sakuraba Retirement Road' series is coming i want to pay my respect to probably the best fighter ever to walk into this young sport we know like MMA.

    I know many will jump to tell me he lost to Silva 3 times, KO by Schembri and CroCop and beat badly by Monotauro but guess what? I don`t really care. I`m not going to fight back and tell everyone " But he beat 4 Gracies" because is like kick an old death horse.

    In the end Sakuraba represent my vision of what MMA should be: A fun sport to watch and train.

    Now with tears in my eyes i present you: Sakuraba`s all time best moments...enjoy.
