This week we feature the fight between Wanderlei “Axe Murderer” Silva and Kazushi Sakuraba at Pride 13-Collision Course. The Axe Murderer meets the Japanese superstar for the very first time in his MMA career. Sakuraba was the current middleweight champion at the time until Silva came in to kick some ass and take some names, 18 names that is. Silva came into PrideFC and was unbeaten in 20 straight fights (18 wins, 1 NC-Gilbert Yvel, 1 Draw-Mirko Cro Cop) from 1999-2004.
Here is the MMA FIGHT of the Week, the first fight that started the trilogy between Wanderlei Silva and Kazushi Sakuraba (notice Tito Ortiz handing out flowers to both fighters in the beginning of the fight):
