Kazushi “The Gracie Hunter” Sakuraba - TRIBUTE VIDEO

Sakuraba is best known as the man who shook the foundations of the Gracie dynasty with 4 consecutive wins against Royler, Royce, Renzo and Ryan Gracie in the short period of 13 months. Half of these wins were scored using the Gracies’ nightmare, the Judo Gyaku ude-garami wristlock. 

Royce Gracie got his revenge in K1 HERO’s - Dynamite!! on June 2, 2007 with a well-deserved victory (unanimous decision).

Young Ralek Gracie in his prime, defeated the then 41 years old Sakuraba on May 29, 2010, also by unanimous decision in Dream 14 event (Saitama, Japan).

Old post, but still true. Love that guy.
