One of the most exciting fighters ever, Kazushi Sakuraba is one of my favorite subjects ever. Painted originally in 2008 for our fight-themed show "There Will Be Blood". Kazushi Sakuraba (桜庭 和志 Sakuraba Kazushi?, born July 14, 1969 in present-day Katagami, Akita) is a Japanese professional mixed martial artist and professional wrestler, currently signed to New Japan Pro Wrestling. He has competed in pro-wrestling for New Japan Pro Wrestling, UWFi and Kingdom Pro Wrestling. He has fought in MMA competition in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, PRIDE Fighting Championships, K-1 Hero's and Dream. He is known as the "Gracie Hunter" due to his wins over four members of the famed Gracie family including Royler Gracie, Renzo Gracie, Ryan Gracie, and Royce Gracie. In particular, Sakuraba is famous for his initial fight with Royce Gracie which lasted ninety minutes.Original painting by Robert Phelps of www.PaintedPoetryHome.com
