Few names in MMA are as legendary as Kazushi Sakuraba. Heading to Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp, Phuket, Thailand with a perfect 9-0 professional record in MMA, Nova Uniao BJJ Black Belt Yan Cabral was training for an upcoming MMA fight in the Japanese MMA promotion DEEP, when he received the offer to face PRIDE FC and Japanese Icon Kazushi Sakuraba at DREAM 17.
