Favorite Pride event

I've seen (for the most part) the pride events of the last two years (and a few from 04) minus total elim. 05. I really think final countdown absolute (2006) was the greatest thing I've seen Pride put out, and the fights just keep getting more outrageous.

CroCop vs. Silva was a massacre. I haven't gotten to see the more recent bushido's except for round 2, but the fighters are all improved from when I had first seen them in earlier releases. Even Josh Barnett isn't a chunker anymore. The only two out of shape fighters are Butterbean and Zhuzinko in my opinion.

I know that I won't enjoy real deal as much as Final Countdown 06, but my second choice would be Critical Countdown 05. What's your favorite?

It's Final Conflict, not Final Countdown. My favorite event was Bushido 9. It had the 1st 2 rounds of the LW and WW tourney, with some great action packed matches. It was a 4 hour event with only 1 really boring match which was Minowa/Baroni II.

Some of my other favorites are the PRIDE Grand Prix 2000, PRIDE 10,
PRIDE 25, Final Conflict 2003, Total Elimination and Critical Countdown 2004, and Shockwave 2004.
