I was watching Ong Bak 2 (which is apparently the best movie ever made) and at the end, I realized that I just watched an entire movie in Thai and it made more sense than every movie Tom Cruise has put out since 2004. I also realized that Sakuraba was added to the Dream 11 card today! There, just another reason to wake up at 3am and call in ‘sick’ the next day. If you haven’t done it then I suggest you get your diploma in ‘How to watch MMA at inopportune times in your life and still function 101’. That’s just the fundamentals, you should have learned that in like 3rd grade.
If you’re not familiar with Kazushi Sakuraba then you’ve probably heard of Rampage Jackson. Yeah, he RNCed him in Pride back in the day. Remember Royler, Royce, Ryan and Renzo Gracie? Sakuraba submitted two of them, handed the other a TKO and won a UD over Ryan. He has submitted Minowaman, TKOd Ken Shamrock, armbared Kevin Randleman and made Guy Mezger forfeit in the opening round of the 2000 Pride Grand Prix (actually it was Ken Shamrock who made Mezger quit after the first round, overall weird stuff). His opponent has not been announced but if they really want to ensure butts will be firmly snug in their seats, throw Ralek Gracie there. Sakuraba is practically BFFs with the entire family. [Source]
