PRIDE free fight video: Kazushi Sakuraba dislocates Renzo Gracie’s arm with nasty kimura

New, 5 comments

PRIDE legend Kazushi Sakuraba was once called “The Gracie Hunter” because he took out so many members of the famed family but perhaps his most infamous victory came in back in 2000.

After already beating Royler and Royce Gracie, Sakuraba was matched up with Renzo at PRIDE 10 in Japan. A back and forth battle ensued between two top notch grapplers but the fight ended after Sakuraba secured a kimura late in the second round.

The gruesome fight ending submission is one of the most memorable finishes in mixed martial arts history. Now take a look back at this epic showdown between Sakuraba and Gracie from 20 years ago.
