2 things went wrong for Vitor that night, he broke his hand & was beaten by one of the best MMA fighters that ever lived in his prime. Simple.
No insult, it is a good question... we´re always discussing these things in sports... some japanese fighters were protected by PRIDE, there is no secret about it..... Takada was never a real fighter and even so he was always hyped as some special fighter by PRIDE.....

Sakuraba always faced the best, yes...but he participated of some weird fights.....Vitor, Rampage......and this one here:

But yes, I admit that after this fight with this guy I really never tried to like Sakuraba and started to look at his fights with a different eye, that´s all.....
