Cool, who is it? I tried pm'ing him on the OG way back to say thanks and to fund his next translation but:

he never got back to me
I can't remember who it was

It would be awesome if he translated others.

TTT for Detective Yoshida.

he's a friend of mine.. but I think it was too much conspiracy so he left.

i think he likes more general purpose forums..

but i think in the future we will grow into a more general purpose board with a conspireality bent.

HAHAHA They call him Krazy Horse for a reason. Charles is from my hometown, Ive trained with him a bit. He is a nice guy and one of the most naturally talented fighters ever. He smoked daily, almost never trained, and made it to a big stage and has a few notable wins. I'm glad he has a small piece in Pride history even if it is getting beat up back stage and losing to Gomi.

He has fought somewhat recently but he is currently serving thirty months in a work camp. The guy never could stay out of trouble.

yeah. he is a natural talent.

unbelievable strength and explosiveness.

his KO of Yoshiro Maeda was scary. Maeda was considered a very good fighter.

i think Gomi was another type that didn't train that seriously but did very well.

sakuraba also.

i think US fighters are the most disciplined.. contrary to the popular notion that Japanese are super disciplined/robotic.

US fighters engage in gruelling weight cutting regimes.. scientific diets.. structured scientific workouts etc.

whereas japanese fighters eat whatever they want and do more old school style workouts. some did not even lift weights like Yuki Kondo.

What i know of the japanese is that they are very hard workers, but party just as hard. Its a common thing in tokyo to see guys in suits sleeping off last nights drunk on a bench or something. Saku and Gomi were the same, after a fight they would have a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. To them after a fight it was time to clock out and have some fun. I dont know if they did it throughout their camps though, i think it was just after fights.

Sakuraba to my knowledge smoked regularly and didn't train *that* hard.

Sakurai couldn't give up fatty/unhealthy foods.. and it showed.. towards the end he was getting more rotund.. even fighting at 185 for awhile.

Yeah I have heard he got up and sucker KOed Wand and then escaped the locker room. I should have asked him about that incident but never did. If anyone is possibly interested in writing him a letter to keep his spirit's up his address in the work camp is:

Charles Bennett U05838 T1148 single
8311 Hampton Springs Road, Perry, Fl 32348

What did he do to get 30 months in a work camp? He was a dangerous fighter, shame he didnt better direction. Always entertaining.

I'm not entirely sure. I believe it was related to old charges and multiple probation violations. He was actually training more consistently before that happened too.

Sakuraba is an all time favorite as well! I do remember reading about him smoking as well. Crazy if he had those type of submission capabilities without much training. He almost had me give up on jiu-jitsu completely during his prime. I was a huge Gracie mark before the IQ wrestler lol
