I gotta feeling its going to look like there first 2 fights. I would like to atleast see Saku fight more than one fight in this tournament. I would of rather seen him matched up against Tamura or Yoshida....

It would be soooooo sweet if he beat Silva, but then we wont get to see Silva Vs. Chuck or Rampage. If Silva loses I will be a happy man anyway....

I would have loved to see Silva vs. Liddell.

I think its a mistake, I can see Silva destroying Sak...but, on the other hand anyone can beat anyone on any given day. I am going w/Silva 1rd KTFO

Remember when Sak made Rampage give up? That was cool. He made Rampage tap. I think that Liddell would also be a very bad match up for Sak.

Most of these people are a bad match up for Saku39


but i really think he has a good shot at taking out silva with a JD...i hope not

I'd have rather seen Rampage face Sak, just to see Rampage get a chance to avenge that loss. Putting him against Sak in his first fight in Pride was a little shady.

I also would like to see Arona vs Sak. Sak is the the BJJ destroyer. Rampage vs. Overeem, Liddell vs. Silva, Tomato can vs. Soon to be Tomato can would have been a better card IMO.

Saku Arona would be good...but Arona strenght might be a prob.


but i think sak takes that one

your all discussing topics that do not matter.

Rampage is winning, deal with it.

Rampage ain't gonna get past Arona. Arona will JD him via lay and pray.

I stole it from you. It was a correct observation. If Silva gets past Sak, he'll lose to Arona or Jackson.

It'll be exciting no matter who wins, but I'd rather see Saku vs Tamura. I think Silva's still too much for him, I hope he doesn't get hurt. Even though Silva's my favorite fighter I'd be really happy for Sakuraba if he won.

He did well in his second fight, if he pulled gaurd he would've won. how ****ingstupid are the Pride match makers to through him tothe wolves again. i'll say a Novena for him, but that may not be enough. He actually should've been placed against Arona. We might actually see an exciting fight from Arona for once. Plus even if Sak repeats Silva-Sak II w/o out mistakes this time he's more likely to get hurt than against Arona. Arona as strong as he is is tailor made for Sak.

Of course its a mistake for the fans but not for the marketing, I just hope the next fight scheduled for sakuraba is not against bob sapp.

Silva will win, hands down. The man has the proven track record, he will make it to the finals and I think Chuck will, poor little Rampage wont make it to the finals. So there you have it, a pre-spoiler.

Magic man is correct. The only person who will give Silva any trouble on his side of the tourny is sak, and like I said before, that aint much trouble for Silva. It would only be easyer for him if everyone else got injured......

LOL, Hasnt Saku score a partial K.O. in every one of their fights. I mean it always looks like Silva chin is the worst....I think saku has a great chance of winning , but I want to see rampage and silva so i need silva to win again
