What fighters from the past would you like to see in the ring/cage against an active fighter

Acouple off the top of my head, i'll think of some good ones though

Igor Vovchanchyn (hw version) vs Shane Carwin

99/00 Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Frank shamrock (although Sakuraba isn't really retired, he's a shell of himself)

You know the sport really isn't old enough to do the classic vs current yet.. Most of the classic greats are still fighting in some degree.

sure it is, plenty of fighters have retired or are years out of their prime. bas rutten, sakuraba, coleman, maurice smith, mezger, frye, Rizzo, igor vovchanchyn, rickson (shooto and pride), even Royce's boney butt. Maybe your right, but i'm always thinking of these things

Bas Rutten vs Wanderlei by the way, i always wanted Bas to come out of retirement and fight Wand

I'd like to see Bas fight Rickson Gracie.

Rickson needed to preserve his name.

I get weird looks from people when i say this stuff but I was never impressed with the little bits of footage I have seen. 400+ fights without a loss? people have said he counts sparring and little scraps on the beach. he's not 400+ in grappling tournys or mma and thats all that matters to me

The best you get is some guys come out and say Rickson is unbelievable and yada yada. You never really get to see it.


I'd also like to see his skills in no-gi

Rickson has been begging for that fight since Dream started,
they won't put it together.

Somewhere a pretty complete list of full names, and dates was posted on sherdog or something with all 400ish fights.

Of Ricksons.
I will look for it, but I swear I have seen it before with my own eyes.

If all the dates, names and times are true or not, I have no idea.

Type in Helio on Rickson in google.

It comes up. I can't view the links because I'm at work right now though.

Do you have a source for that?

The only way I could see that fight not happening is if Rickson wants an insane amount of money which he most definately will.

Just google "Rickson vs Sakuraba or Rickson wants Sakuraba"

I guess they were saying Rickson wanted some obscene amount of money.
Who knows.

That fight would be HUGE in Japan.
