Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Trying To Make Sense of the Dream Betting Odds

(We know he can take a beating, but can he still give one?)

I admit it, I was shocked to see the betting odds for Dream.4 list Kazushi Sakuraba as a favorite over Melvin Manhoef. In his time, Sakuraba was a beautiful phenomenon. And yet, all things come to an end. He’s old, he’s banged up, and Manhoef plays to all his greatest weaknesses (crazy strikers with a hankering for blood).

Then I remembered Guy Mezger’s comments about the shenanigans that have been known to happen in Japan, and I thought twice. Could that be it? Could enough people be putting money down on Sakuraba as a sentimental favorite? Maybe. Or maybe all they remember are the good old days.

After going back and taking a look, I admit it, Sakuraba’s good old days were pretty good. Refresh your own memory with this fun highlight. After the jump, take a look at Manhoef’s. Should be an interesting weekend.

both great video's i was hoping to see the highlight of when Sakuraba came out dressed like mario but oh well...

After seeing the Manhoef video i really really really want to see him fight Machida. Talk about opposite styles.
