Sami Berik vs Hayato Sakurai

Britain’s Sami Berik has announced that he is heading to Japan to compete in Pride. For a time Berik was supposed to be meeting Takanori Gomi, but now Berik has announced that he’ll be facing Hayato Sakurai. A natural lightweight who has often fought at welterweight, Berik is a highly unorthodox fighter who likes to perform drunken kung fu during his matches but with his record at 8-16-0 against domestic opposition, he faces an uphill battle against the very dangerous Sakurai, whose record stands at 27-7-2 including wins over Joachim Hansen and most recently Mac Danzig.
