too bad. I really like the 4 point attack rules of pride. If they are not going to let them do it in the states then they should just stay in Japan.

thai clench knees and high kicks are all shogun needs to disassemble randleman. shogun's diversity is why he's my second favorite fighter ever- and he's going to give us all a little treat for pride 32.

Randyspankstito I totaly agree they should just fight in Japan. This will result in yet another different way of fighting. It could be interresting but I don't think it's fair when you take away a fighters strongest offense.

Are they going to fight in a ring or cage?

I have no sources for this... But I am pretty sure they will use the ring, becaus NSAC don't say you have to use a cage, and Pride will probably keep the show as similar to the original pride as possible.

Inmortality is to live your life doing good things, and leaving your mark behind.

Definitely. Pride may have to change some rules but they will keep it as similar as possible

Who said no elbows? UFC allows it, the Florian/Sherk fight last night was pretty bloody because of one, so not sure why Pride wouldn't allow it.

PRIDE rules state "No elbow strikes to the head and face."

Pride doesn't allow elbows for the fact they can stop fights so quickly. Cuts open up in bad spots and bam, the fights over. Pride would rather see vicious knockouts over doc. stoppage

Doh! I've watched a ton of Pride events and didn't really notice they didn't allow elbows. IMO, ramming a knee into a guy's head and neck area when he's on the ground is much more dangerous to a fighter's health than an elbow. However I can understand not allowing elbows in the context of preventing cuts. Blood and doctor stoppages don't make for great fights.
