link Jason “Mayhem” Miller lived up to his vow, as he became the first man in more than 14 years to submit Japanese icon Kazushi Sakuraba at Dream 16 on Saturday at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan. Sakuraba -- who had not asked out of a fight since a July 1996 encounter with Kimo Leopoldo -- met his demise inside an arm-triangle choke 2:09 into round one, the crowd looking on in stunned silence.

Thought Saku had a chance with the leg but it was a no go.
Props to Mayhem for securing the choke.

It was a great match IMO....we got to see the Miller peace symbol mid fight again! I think it's time for Sakuraba to hang up the mits though.
