Compare these Pride Fighters to UFC fighters for me...

Ive been watching mma for a few years now but Ive lived in the US and in Canada during these years and found it a lot easier to watch UFC than Pride. I find myself online searching all of these Pride fights but I just havent had the time to check a lot of it out. Ive viewed many of the fights from the big players like Fedor (obviously), CC before the move, Wanderlei etc. But a few of these fighters I just havent gotten around too.

So, in your opinion, which UFC star is comparable to:

1) Ricardo Arona

2) Shinya Aoki

3) Gomi

4) Kid Yamanoto (i dont know how to spell his name, but ive only seen him on K1)

5) Kazuyuki Fujita

6) Overheem

Ive seen a few fights from all of them but its hard to label them, or know if they were contenders, has beens, never lived up to the hype etc.

So, if you got a couple of minutes, can you compare them to any UFC fighter?

any suggestions on pride fighters I should look up that arent obvious?

Thats pretty tough to do. Arona is like babalu very good subs not great standup. Oveereem matches good against chuck and almost beat him. Fujita is like cabage's chin but a way better fighter.
