#tbt one of my favorite pictures in mma history. Kazushi Sakuraba one of the most influential fighters of the era jumping over Royce's bjj skills demonstrating that one style is not enough to be effective and ushering the new era of well rounded modern mma fighters. Oh yeah and Saku was a pro wrestler👊
Sakuraba pays homage to Pro Wrestling. This picture is taken from "street writer the word warrior" blog . His blog has a very good history of pro wrestling and how it went from real to predetermined. Really a great blog. Google it, it's a fantastic read.
Nothing like that moment when to remember what it is like to be a #fanboy. .. ... Even just seeing this legend made me all warm and fuzzy for the days of pride. So many wars and he still makes time to take photos with annoying fans. . .... This is what makes this sport great
