If you didn’t watch Saturday’s UFC 212 pay-per-view, then you may have missed the news that the promotion is inducting Japanese legend, Kazushi Sakuraba, into the UFC Hall of Fame.

Now, if you don’t know who Sakuraba is, well, then you have some homework to do in Fight Pass. Sakuraba became a massive star back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, by defeating the likes of Royce, Royler, Renzo and Ryan Gracie. He also defeated fighters like “Rampage” Jackson and Vitor Belfort. The former pro-wrestler was nicknamed “The Gracie Hunter”, and Sakuraba’s fame was a driving factor in the massive success of PRIDE.

Sakuraba went on to fight many of the sport’s biggest names, while often giving up a ton of size. So, there’s no question that the now, 47 year-old, deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. You can watch Sakuraba’s UFC HOF confirmation vid below.
