Best Pride match ever?

Which fight do you think is the best?

I like Fedor vs CroCop, that fight went the distance and was a very good match-up.

Discuss.

It was a good fight, agreed. Although I thought it would have been a longer fight, I liked the Vitor Belfort and Silva fight back in the day. Maybe b/c I'm a huge Belfort fan but, lmao.

It's kind of hard to have disappointing fights in Pride because of the yellow cards. Imagine if the UFC had yellow cards, that Sylvia vs Arlovski fight would have been different IMO.

Shamrock vs. Frye was pretty sweet.

Shamrock vs Frye was great.

The Fedor vs Mirko fight is number one for me though.........Just the feel of seeing these two titans go at is was nerve recking. The fact that I like both didn't help ethier.
