Pride Watch #1: Pride 30: Fully Loaded.
Ok, so no one talks about this Pride event, and I can sort of understand why. I mean, it was unremarkable, but it did have some fun stuff, and only one very boring fight(Takimoto vs Yoon).
Sergei vs Werdum is one fine pissing contest. Seriously, I was waiting for Luke Cummo to run in, and lap up both men's piss like a dog. People hated this fight, but I seriously dug it. Sergei showed some nice sub defense here, and is the last good fight of his. I am saddened at what has happened to my Sergei.
James Thompson beats the shit out of some fat dude. This is freakshowy goodness here, and James Thompson is one of the best freakshow fighters around. I bet James Thompson pisses caffeine.
ZULU WINS! Hell yea, man! This show is all about the motherfreakin' freak shows!
Shamrock vs Sakuraba was a sham. Ken shouldn't have turned his back to Sakuraba after getting hit. This could've been a really fun fight, but it turned out to be disappointing.
Hey, Quinton beats the shit out of Yokoi! HOORAY!
Cro Cop vs Barnett was good. Sure, it was a bit slow, but I liked it a lot. It was pretty surreal to see Barnett get the better of Mirko standing, and Mirko get the better of Josh on the ground. Some people said this was boring, but I didn't think so at all, and it was pretty even until the third.
So, yea, this show was pretty fun, and the freakshow fights made the show for me. Sirdilznik needs to check this one out, since he's a huge Thompson fan. Thompson is in his glory here.
