    Who wins? I was just in the other Maia thread, then it got me thinking.

    Sakuraba, possibly the best guy to have represented catch-wrestling.

    Maia, possibly the best guy to have represented BJJ.

    No idea, Sakuraba could cartwheel his way into trouble or victory.

    Maia. Honestly, think Saku is overrated on these boards.

    Did Mai ever fight a catch wrestler before? If not Sakuraba has this prime or not. Otherwise it goes to a decision and depends if it's in Brazil (Mai) or Japan (Saki). From my limited time in the Gym BJJ guys who have never had catch wrestling experience always get surprised by something in it.

    I love Sakuraba but Maia would handle him on the ground.

    * I would hope and expect the fight to be like Sakuraba vs Newton.

    Sakuraba by decision or Maia by submission/decision. Would be an awesome fight
