Royce Gracie vs Kazushi Sakuraba in the Pride 2000 Grand Prix. This fight usually cuts either way on fight fans opinion of its entertainment value. I personally think it was an epic battle. This was the first time Royce ever lost in a mma match. It took Saku 6-15 minute rounds to defeat mr. Gracie. Rorian reluctantly threw in the towel, as Helio watched ringside.
