Here is the man, lean, lithe, and stoic. In a field of eight, he's a physical anomaly, with shoulders as narrow as his hips; a bulky pair of white pajamas conceals a set of pipe-cleaner arms.

This was the first time Royce was tested. Who knows if he used before or not. The guy is a whiny punk, always requesting special rules and complaining when things don't go his way. Saku showed him what real heart and a real MMA fighter were (in the first fight). Royce is just a BJJ practicioner who beat hand-selected cans in a an event staged by family members. MMA was around long before UFC anyway (Pancrase, Shooto, many other less known orgs), what is with people giving this classless "fighter" all this credit? Any good fighter would have handed him his ass, like Bas (hell, any K1 or Muay Thai fighter from back then would have destroyed him had they been allowed in UFC).

Royce barely survived Kimo (even with hairpulling and headbutting), I mean come on! Saku battled for 90 min and didn't drop out of a tournament, going on to face IGOR of all people! Now that is a true warrior, not some 1-dimensioanl BJJ punk who is deluded with himself being a legend.
