Very good. Probably the best ever P4P.

with UFC weight cutting he could probably be a 145 or 155 lber

Heroism is greater than just winning a series of fights in a controlled environment. Coming back to fight Igor to a draw after a 90min match against Royce was far more impressive than if he just stayed within his weight class and beat 160ers for years imo.

totally true.

I was very worried for him when he had to face Igor.
I guess Igor was tired that day or he should have given Sakuraba a major beating.
Still for sak to come out and basically draw or survive with igor is amazing.

Sak's prime was very short, but I think prime for prime he was probably the best the sport has ever seen.

He didn't really work out really and didn't max out his physical potential.

Those who know, know! Big Grin
