It depends what weight you are. People saying "I'd pick Pride 'cause they've got better fighters" or "Unless you're a really good fighter, you're better off working at McDonalds than you are in the UFC. For that reason I'll go with Pride."........ pointless.
If you're a heavyweight and want better opposition go to Pride. Welterweight? Go to UFC. etc, etc...

Chuck Lidell has been giving some interviews for speciliazed magazines and says you're a complete fighter, but he'll knock you out. What do you have to say about that? Babalu - The only blow he'll give are three little ones on the floor.

Oh yes, I forgot, we'd ALL be going into the fight business for the same reasons... Everyone is a standup guy who fights for the competition rather than the money... right.

What? That wasn't what I said, or implied, at all.

I said people picking UFC or Pride and saying "because they've got better fighters" is pointless, because it depends what weight division you're in.

Personally, I'd pick Pride FC. Why? The fans. The fans are knowledgeable and respectful. They don't boo if you're not a native, they don't start chanting "boring" when it hits the mat, and even if you lose they'll respect your effort.

It's either that or getting jeered at by some drunk f**k and being labeled a "can" or "loser" by someone without the balls or skills to do it.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

I pick UFC so I don't have to fly and learn Japanese. Plus the PRIDE fighters are the ebst in the world so I would never make it there. If I did I would be massacred like Sonny from the Godfather. If I went to UFC I would have a chance at beating all those washed up idiots on the ultimate fighter 4.
