I guess it's just a New Mexico rumor. A sad rumor too cause this fight looks like a good one.www.ufcdaily.com/2007/06/20/sakurai-doesnt-have-any-plans-of-fighting-diego-at-ufc-74/
yeah... I'm just really upset because sakurai is one of my all-time favs and I was REALLY looking forward to this fight.
Oliver Copp, who covers UFC and does commentary on the German UFC DVD releases (as I recall) spoke with UFC officials in the past hour or two, and they told him they have not heard of this fight being canceled. However, Oliver pointed out that this does not mean that the fight is canceled, but it does indicate that, at least on the UFC end of things, the fight was/is scheduled.
I would add that I was hoping Trigg was talking to Ryuta Sakurai instead of Hayato.
I WANTED TO SEE THIS ONE!
ya the ufc is really slow on putting new information on there site,i mean the tito one was concrete a good month before it was up.
well i would say theres already a chance of this happening still but it def wont be at ufc 74 if sakurai isnt even training
i would really like to see this fight in the future though
Sakarai has been denying this fight ever since the rumor got out.
I was really looking forward to this fight! Oh well hopefully they put an equally solid fight on the card.
I hope they get this fight done (heck I dont care about Diego, I want MACH!)
I dont care who he fights, just get him in a cage!
Mach would Destroy Diego!
