Default Should Sakuraba retire?

I am worried about his long term health. He has had to fight so many people he shouldn't of been fighting, he has gotten beating down so many times, I am worried for the guy. I don't want to see him die in the ring or end up with long lasting effects on his health.

Should Sakuraba walk away with his health still intact?

I wish he would just rest up and fight in Bushido. He's still a brilliant fighter but he needs to fight smaller guys.

That's it... he'd be fine if he stayed in his natural weight class.

Yeah, and he could fight more Gracies, but I belvie he said he didn't want to fight in Bushido. I really feel they are going to have to take him from the ring in a body bag, or in a stright jacket wearing a bib.

I am worried for him

Pride needs an official 185 weight class.

With the beating that he took from Silva 1 2 3, he should retire. But he can still draw in crowds like a Tank and Ken and still get paid big bucks, so I am sure he will not retire.

Can't say as I'm "worried" for him, as such. Mainly due to the fact that I don't know him, and if he wants to get mauled by crazed Brazillian fighters on a regular basis, then more power to him. I need to be entertained like anybody else.

He really should fight a few fighters his own size and then retire. He's an old pro-wrestler, so his knees are shot to ****, and have been for years. Sakuraba is still the **** though.

Sak will never die! He should stick to guys in his own weight class though.
