wierdly me and my coach were discussing this a few days ago. He was of the opinion that Sak showboating with royce was one of the best things ever in mma.
I think weight classes are pretty important. Im not sure that Sak is all that!, but he was certainly at a disadvantage in terms of size and conditioning a lot of the time

Yeah Sak is quite a fighter no doubt about it. But I completly agree with what the articale talked about with the importance of weight.Weight divissions exist in MMA,ring side sports like boxing,judo tournamwnts etc because most of the time the bigger,stronger,heavier most aggressive person will win.Fighting skill does have a part to play but with what we know about martial arts these days anyone can become highly skilled if they invest the time and determination. Its not like it was hundereds of years ago in countries like China and Japan where only few people had access to martial arts training.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker.

The article makes some good points.
We ALL know weight and size matters, that was never disputed, its HOW MUCH size matters that continues to be debated and always will to NO ONE satisfaction.
As for Sakuraba, I say this, take a look at the highlight reel from sherdog as an example, he may or may not be the greatest, but did anyone twist and dislocate more arms then him ????

Sakuraba no mae ni Sakuraba nashi, Sakuraba no ato ni Sakuraba nashi. It's as simple as that."The morning glory blooms for an hour. It differs not at heart from the giant pine, which lives for a thousand years."
