Kazushi Sakuraba to the UFC HOF

Kazushi Sakuraba to the UFC HOF
05 Jun
Not in Hall of Fame
We have a new member of the UFC Hall of Fame Class of 2017 as it has been announced that Japanese legend Kazushi Sakuraba will be going into the Hall as a member of the Pioneer Wing.  Sakuraba joins previously announced Maurice Smith, Joe Silva (Contributor) and Urijah Faber (Modern Era).

While Sakuraba competed predominantly in Pride, he did win the UFC Ultimate Japan Tournament two decades ago.  Sakuraba would truly establish his legend by defeating Royce Gracie in a ninety minute contest.  He would be dubbed the “Gracie Hunter” and would defeat three other members of the famed jiu-jitsu clan.

Sakuraba would also defeat Ken Shamrock, Vitor Belfort, Kevin Randleman and Quentin Jackson.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Kazushi Sakuraba fro achieving this incredible honor.
