Fight of the Day: Ricardo Arona vs. Kazushi Sakuraba

From PRIDE Critical Countdown 2005 (6/26/2005). Because not much is going on this morning and I’ve been wanting to run the fight that produced this:

Kazushi Sakuraba Ricardo Arona PRIDE’>

From Sakuraba’s divebomb attacks in the first round, to Arona’s relentless knees, to the “holy shit” moment when the second frame is over and Saku’s roadkill-face emerges, it’s a minor classic. Enjoy.

HolysShit indeed! How about holy fuckin shit, he looked like half the ppl on nothingtoxic after that fight. I know 'ol Herb Dean would have been booed for stopping that fight, but seriously, those Pride refs are fucking idiots for not stopping that early, it was pretty obvious Sak was not defending himself. Jezuz, that's like getting hit with a baseball bat.

I don't even dig in my ass the way that Arona was digging away at that cut. That was seriously weak...

I don't know of any other fighter who has taken more damage than Sak. Damn, that boy is a glutton for punishment. I give him props for heart though.

Whoa, you see when Arona was straight-up digging into Sakuraba's cut? And not so much as a yellow card? Cheap bastard...
