Holy wow. Sakuraba vs. Paulo Filho is probably going down

Holy wow. Sakuraba vs. Paulo Filho is probably going down

In the beginning of Conan the Barbarian, his father tells him ‘The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, Conan. You must learn its discipline. For no one – no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts…but steel you can trust‘. Paulo Filho’s father gave him a similar speech but he only replaced ‘steel’ with ‘cut-off flannel’ and a young Paulo listened to every word. Since that day, Paulo Filho has dedicated himself to upholding his father’s words (with his mother’s permission of course) and rock his cut-off before every bout, and it looks like this year it will start off with Sakuraba

According to Tatame, a bout between Sakuraba and Paulo Filho is slated for Bitetti Combat 6. If Fedor isn’t the greatest of all time, Sakuraba is next in line. His MMA career record is comprised of a long list of guys you would chop off your index finger just to meet (and he’s beat most of them). He’s called the Gracie Hunter for a reason. Dude has consumed every Gracie he’s fought including Ryan, Renzo, Royce and Royler. In fact, Royce Gracie had to get juiced up on anabolic steroids back in 2007 just to get the unanimous decision win over Sak, a fight that still hasn’t been overturned by FEG. If you don’t live in a Brazil, then there’s a slim chance you will be able to watch Bitetti Combat 6 on your television. However, just do what we did. Find a pirated stream of Bitetti Combat on Justin.TV. Don’t worry, all the cool kids are doing it. [Source]
