    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Rickson fights again?

    I heard that Rickson might fight sakuraba sometime at the end of the year. Has anyone else heard this? My brother says that Ricksons always talking about fighting Rand Couture after class. That'd be a good fight. But back to the main point- anyone heard about this?

    Haha :rolleyes:


    It would make for a great story. The awesome, legendary Rickson Gracie, who is only spoken about in hush, revered tones in reference to his great fighting prowess, coming out of seclusion as the family's last hope to defend the price of the Gracie clan against the Yellow Menace Sakuraba! A fight to the death! A fight for HONAH!
    Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all **** like that! -theoutsider

    Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower

    The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.

    dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing

    Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
    I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
    what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone

    Yea...Bas Rutten has in his own low key way been calling out Rickson for years as well and nothing has ever transpired.

    I must admit, Im a Rickson fan, but it wouldnt look very good if he fought Sakuraba now- not as good as he *could* have when Sak was on top of the world. He was the top middleweight, and defeated 4 Gracies. Had Rickson fought and defeated him THEN I think you'd find less people badgering him for not fighting good fighters.

    Look at Sak now- KO'ed by Silva 3 x, and defeated by BJJ fighters Nino Schembri and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Certainly nothing to be ashamed of, but he hardly looks superhuman now.

    I had never really seen Rickson fight before today actually. I'd seen highlight clips and all but those are like advertisements. Not the best reflections. So today I saw him fight Funaki Masakatsu. Damn. Very impressive. But I mean not like he walked over Masakatsu. It was a really good fight and lasted a damn long time. So who are some of his toughest opponents? I mean, I'd never heard of this Masakatsu guy before and he put in a thouroughly respectable performance against Risckson. Has he has any fights which were really wars? I've never heard this criticism of him before but it makes be curious as hell. I have seen some of the other Gracies having a hard time and in his fight with Masakatsu he hardly seemed invincible. VERY impressive though and MUCH more fun to watch than Royce or the other couple fights I've seen here and there. What I tend to not like about BJJ is how conservative most fighters seem to be but Rickson was very active.

    Whatever. Got some reccomendations for me to try and find?

    Funaki was a top notch submission specialist in Japan- I have a highlight video around here somewhere of him.

    He had impressive wins over people such as Frank Shamrock, so his subs were pretty tight. It was amazing how Rickson passed his guard like it was non existent, I couldnt believe it.

    Aside from that one fight, no I dont think there are any other "tough" fights hes had.

    I heard that the Wolfman was going to fight Frankenstein; but I don't think its really going to happen; and yet it is still more likely than Rickson fighting again.
