    This is probably my favourite sports interview ever, the Sakuraba part at the end in particular.

    I think it is cut short thou IIRC, the journalist asks him aboiut a rematch and Renzo answeer yes he could break my other arm:icon_chee

    That was pretty cool! It seemed like a positive and unbiased report on MMA as opposed to say The O'reilly Factor.

    I really appreciated how articulate both men are and how respectful they are..... does a lot more for the sport than Dana White swearing on national tv

    Good interview, and 60 Minutes did a pretty balanced report all things considered.

    Renzo's record speaks for itself. Everyobody knows he's a great fighter, but everytime i see one of his interviews he also seems to be a great man. Anybody here ever trained with him?
