Soccer Kicks and knees allowed In Pride 32 The Real Deal

Just wanted to if the NSAC is allowing these techniques? If not, how do you guys think Shogun will do against Randleman? I still feel that Shogun will whoop the Monsters but all over the place, but will this make it a less exciting fight?

Soccer kicks and knees are not allowed. Pride will follow the same rules as UFC that are set forth by NSAC. They will still have yellow cards to maintain the pace of a Pride fight. Rua is good but I think Randleman will win.

No elbows as well. Damn. Shogun will really have to work on his take down defense or sit-outs or he's gonna be trouble. But I guess that depends on which Monster comes to fight. Can't wait to see the card. I hope Joey Villasenor whoops Robbie Lawler.

yeah with no kicks and that shogun might have his hands a bit fuller. randlemans gonna wrestle him down for sure. but im sure shogun is training grappling like no other. randlemans game plan is gonna be the same that coleman used. but hopefully, no dislocated joints this time

Yeah you're probably right. Randleman hasn't really evolved as a fighter over the years. But he still has great wrestling, GnP, and a nasty left hook. I actually think that Randleman has more explosive hands than Shogun. I'm still going for Shogun because he's a more versatile and complete fighter. Plus he does some crazy shiznit.

no kicks? you mean no kicks to a down opponent... shogun is a standup muay thai fighter... these rules don't change his game in the least!

well stand up he can kick no doubt, but shogun has stopped quite a few fights with kicks in the 4point position.

of course, but that doesn't imply that without that weapon, he's losing that much of his game. there are fighters who win because of the rules they fight in, and those who are so skilled they transcend those rules and can cope with any situation to come out on top. i believe that shogun is very skilled and will succeed under any rules. especially since we've seen randleman in both PRIDE and the UFC, and he fights the same, exactley the same, and boring and un-skilled no matter where! shogun will come out on top!
