Critical Absolute Question

So is the finals fight the same night as the semis?? Never got a Pride PPV before this will be my first. If so how does it work? I mean is the finals right after the semis or are they earlier on in the night. Can someone please explain this to me. Thanks for helpin out!

The semi-finals will be aired on the PPV at the beginning and the PPV will end with the finals. You will see CroCop/Silva and Barnett/Nog then whoever wins fights later that night.

Yeah they open the card with the semi's. Then usually they bring the finalists to the ring and announce it. Like we can't figure it out. Then it is the last fight of the night.

There are 4-5 more fights on the undercard. It's starts with the semi's then the 4-5 fights then they end with the finals.

Just started watching MMA about a year now...mostly UFC. This will be my first Pride experience and I can't wait!!! Seen a few fights on Fox Sports and some Silva fights online. Silva looks like a monster so I want to see him win. I've been reading alot of posts and I know alot of you say he won't win but thats who I'm cheerin for. If he does get demolished maybe I'll have a new fave. I really don't know any of the other guys....yet.

You think I'm out to scare you? I'm only out to prepare you, for when you stop and turn around, Your body's going down!

smart choice man , this can posssibly be the best event in MMA history (on paper, it definately looks like it)
