Stop this UFC Vs PRIDE Crap, for the love of god.

IronMan, i don't wanna be rude to ya because ya seem like a nice/cool guy for the most part but dude, just stop.

Your terrible at it. Your matching up fighters who aren't even in the same weightclass or league's of fighting expeirence. Example- The Babalu fight vs Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria, Randleman Vs Rashad Evans and guys like Paul "The Headhunter" Buentello don't even fight in the ufc anymore! HE's FIGHTING IN STRIKEFORCE!

Come on dude, it's just stupid to pair up alot of these fighters and then say PRIDE:11 UFC: 4

I mean hey, i could make posts like this to and just match guys up like SWICK VS Gomi! and swick would probably either A- Win like he would in real life, or B- loose because theres such a more drastic amount of pride jockey's then UFC fans. Or heres another one BJ Penn Vs Kang or GSP vs Hayato "Mach" Sakurai.

I mean, hell i think those would be more well rounded close compaire fights then Babalu vs a guy who weights 25 more pounds then him(thats why i did the Swick vs Gomi fight, swick outweights him by like 32 pounds and even though i love gomi, he couldn't win.)

Its stupid man, i like to compaire fighters just as much as the next guy, but if your going to make these things semi-official, atleast do it right.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

Your a UFC fan, right?

I agree some do seem lopsided, Fedor/Cro Cop against anyone in the UFC is automatically a win/vote for them. I think these polls should at least stay in the same weight class.

Sure.

In my defense, Buentello v Zentsov, NOT MY IDEA!

WAIT A MINUTE!!!

What the #@$% is going on here. You want to talk about Babalu's weight disadvantage and then give me this crap.

Everyone (at least everyone who has watched a PRIDE lightweight fight) knows that Hayato is 160, 165 tops, without cutting weight. GSP is 180, at least.

GSP weights 170, and Hayoto walks around at 170, not that big of a difference compaired to Babalu who walks around 210ish and fights at 205and Antoino who walks around usually around 240/250 and fights at 238.

i'd say a 30 pound weight difference is different then about 15ish

and here
Height 5'10 (178cm)
Weight 169lbs (77kg)
thats GSP's measure's.

Edit: i like some fighters in UFC and some in PRIDE, but i like UFC's ring alot more and i also like how they show fights in the US for free about every other month now (Ultimate Fight Night).

I think prides got some great fights and really good fighters. I think PRIDE is great because they do alot more tourniment type set ups. Where i think UFC is great because they use more of there belt and ranking system where you earn your spot for your title by throwing together consecutive winning streak.

Spit206Fire, BJ Penn is almost a lightweight and to tell him to put him in a poll with one of the top three PRIDE FC middleweights? Then saying the fights IronMan makes are lopsided? I agree some are lopsided, about 3 or 2 but most are pretty even.

We need to stop this...

Theres no reason to keep going on with all this Pride and UFC stuff, its ridiculous. To me it seems like we have too many UFC or Pride fans and not enough MMA fans.
