Log in to Reply nietosky September 21, 2012 and vitor belfort is one of the top 5 on UFC, WOW, and this fight was on his prime time. Log in to Reply axepittbull September 21, 2012 ty bruno! Log in to Reply FLYINGKNEEss September 21, 2012 fight looked fixed!

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.

Log in to Reply DrDoom September 21, 2012 Back in the Pride days when people were being paid-off to lose. Log in to Reply HelloWorld September 21, 2012 Belfort looked like crap Log in to Reply j0e September 21, 2012 No body can replace Saku, mate! Log in to Reply KouNTa KuLCHa September 21, 2012 I think Overeem vs Belfort will be a closer example to this weekends fight. Long live Sakuraba! What a legend…♠ Log in to Reply greengiant September 21, 2012 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. Log in to Reply wow September 21, 2012 dead legs and mental weakness. Either he got paid or he mentally broke, either way, what a douche Log in to Reply loot September 21, 2012 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/ Log in to Reply Randy Couture September 21, 2012 @nietosky Vitor was at his prim when he was 19 go watch those fights. Bruno what do you think about this fight? Bruno: Fixed. Log in to Reply danada September 21, 2012 @ theEpicurean: This wasn’t old sakuraba. This was saku in his prime. Pride 5? This was sakuraba at his best. Log in to Reply George September 21, 2012 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. Log in to Reply victor September 21, 2012 this fight took place before vitor found jesus Log in to Reply juniordoslightsout September 21, 2012 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 Log in to Reply ken shiro September 21, 2012 FIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Log in to Reply loot September 21, 2012 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. Log in to Reply theEpicurean September 21, 2012 @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. Log in to Reply drunkentigah September 22, 2012 Pride was notorious for fixing fights which is why they went under. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
