what do you do when u miss pride

everyday i read or watch MMA, lingering in the back of my head always is the bushido tourneys ...

i miss pride so much
how they pitch best fighters together in tourneys every single year...

but all i can do look for old fight clips and try not to watch UFC to commemorate pride. because i feel like UFC is the exact opposite of what pride use to be.

how do you guys deal with the withdrawal?

I do enjoy watching UFC now, but sincerely miss old Pride days.
just watched Dream 5 couple of days ago, and even my wife agrees that this shit feels like Pride and intensity of fights is way better that most in UFC. I don't know the reason myself but Pride/Dream fight are much more interesting to watch. K-1 also helps me relax

Son, neg-reps will come at you from every shape and place you can imagine. You gotta brush them off as they are more than likely from trolls or n00bz. Or just people too butt-hurt about your opinion.

When I'm having serious, and I mean serious, Pride withdrawal symptons I put on one the DVD's usually a big event like one of the GPs and I just watch the intro, not even the fights sometimes. Just the bit where the music plays and the crazy Pride lady anounces all the fighters as they walk out and you hear the crowd go crazy for basically any Japanese fighter, Nog, Crocop or Wandy and the place practically erupts when Sakuraba walks out,

Yeah I'm gonna go do that now...
