Sakuraba's ear rips

  • Witty nickname PRO 5y

    That was horrible, I hope he heals up and finally retires.

    Nice timing on your pic too.

    Witty nickname thanks! yeah, I hoped he'd retire after his fight with Mayhem... this one left me with blood on my camera and shirt. But lucky I wear all black.

    Amazing capture! Sak should have retired a long time ago, but I guess he just loves the game way too much & doesn't want to do anything else. Tough bastard.

    He really needs to stop fighting. i love the guy, definitely a pivotal figure in the history of the sport, but i don't like watching him disintegrate in the ring.

    Holy.....that's Awesome!

    The salvo function on the 1D came in handy for this shot!

    I wished Saku would step back from the ring and live out his life as a MMA legend. The beating he got from Silva should have been the last fight... seeing his ear come off was just unnecessary lol.

    He's a legend, but I don't think he cares about looking good for the people. He just does it because he either likes it or needs some money.
