    alternating rounds between MMA and K1 rules! for example – the 1 st round will be MMA rules, the 2nd round will be K1 rules(striking only) and so on….

    Im not sure… although I’d say if the fight is finished within the rules of MMA it will be counted on their MMA record, and vice versa!

    Can’t wait! I’ve got tickets for Dynamite. It’s looking good. It’s a day out is Dynamite. Last year I got there at 3 and left around 11 and they let you bring your own beer in…How good is that???? A lot of you are saying the Dynamite card is better than the Sengoku card. It’s good but in terms of explosive, don’t blink, people getting stretchered out, and back and forth wars, Sengoku is the one to watch. In fact I think I’ll get tickets for that too.

    Hes not a nobody, he is a k-1 fighter n a pretty successful one, he has the potential of KO’ing Aoki in 30 secs but if the fight goes to the ground Aoki can sub him hin 30 secs

    im actually starting to believe that Saku will never ever retire and will actually die in the ring!… walk into the ring in a zimerframe with his young nephew feeding werthers original!…

    there should be a NYE 2030

    Sakuraba vs. Hoyce Gracie 2!.

    no time limit ….but they get to stop every half an hour for gas and air!…

    would be a epic match up!… haha
