You replace Sakuraba by Jon Jones and you have this week-end’s fight.

This might have been around the time when his sister was kidnapped. That or maybe Pride bribed him to just hang and ride a decision – then at least poor old Saku could fight again.Either way, this epitomizes Vitor’s unfortunate tendency to stand in front of guys.

I like how the music sounds like it came from an SNES game.

Back in the Pride days when people were being paid-off to lose.

I think Overeem vs Belfort will be a closer example to this weekends fight.

Long live Sakuraba! What a legend…♠

i see what you did bruno.your showing the worst vitor fight for what reason?

Bruno: That Vitor was willing to take a dive for money.

dead legs and mental weakness. Either he got paid or he mentally broke, either way, what a douche

If he did take a dive why the hell did he try to knock sakuraba out right off the get go! Plus it was his debut in Pride, it just doesn’t add up!!!

Bruno: One well known fighter on the card said “Sakuraba was the only fighter that did not know the fix was on”. Quote from interview. Will leave it at that. Also watch this fight from the same card. http://www.mmatko.com/mark-coleman-vs-nobuhiko-takada-fight-video-pride-fc-5/

@ theEpicurean:

This wasn’t old sakuraba. This was saku in his prime. Pride 5? This was sakuraba at his best.

Belfort broke his hand when he was teeing off in the turtleing Saku. This is a known thing and was discussed at the time, by the way. No way a fighter paid to take a dive would beat his opponent like he does in that sequence. You add the broken hand to the usual Belfort gassing and weak mind, and you get this kind of fight. It has NOTHING to do w/ Takada/Coleman pro-wrestling in the ring.

damn I lost all respect for saku and vitor. Vitor would kill him. If that wasn’t a fixed fight I don’t know what is

Hey Bruno don’t you think vitor should take some tips from sapp if he wants to take a dive. He probably couldn’t walk for a week after those leg kicks

Thanks Bruno for the link. I’ve watched the Takada/Coleman fight and that one leaves no doubt as to whether or not it was fixed but the vitor/sakuraba… I honestly think it’s hard to tell. I know that Pride would only tell one fighter “hey we give you this much money and you throw the fight” and leave the other thinking it wasn’t fixed so it would look real. But yeah maybe it was fixed, it’s just that I’m not convinced.

@danada: I didn’t mean it literally. And that wasn’t my point – the fight was probably fixed. The fact that is was on the same card as the infamous Coleman-Takada makes me even more confident that it was fixed.

Pride was notorious for fixing fights which is why they went under.
