Ranking The Best Fighters In The World
Flyweight 36 6 2 (17)
Last Year s Ranking: 70
Status Report: Sakata plummets 25 spots following a dismal year in which he beat an absolute no hoper in Eric Siregar (KO 1) and then lost to Daiki Kameda (L 12). This after falling from 44 to 70 in last year s analysis. Don t get us wrong; it s still a hell of a thing to be rated one of the best 100 fighters in the world. But dropping 51 rungs in two years is remarkable. And unless we expand this analysis next year to include the Top 150 fighters in the world, we suspect this is Sakata s final appearance.
Future: Nothing scheduled, which, all things considered, might be a good thing.
