If you want more bang for your buck I go with the 5 event packs. I have the one with Pride 24-28 and recently I was just lucky enough to find the one that has 17-18 and 20-22 at a half price store. I haven't made through all the ones that I just got but I loved the 24-28 one. I think they sell for around 20-25 bucks at Best Buy.

Oh and the entrances of the events is what I miss most about Pride, besides the fights themselves, the drummer, the music the opening presentation of introducing the fighters is simply kickass. If I was at an event like that I would be bouncing off the walls I'd be so pumped.

Don't forget Randleman's left hook on Cro-Cop.

I did like Arona's leg-kicks. Dude dropped Overeem with a leg-kick. Sick stuff.

My favorite thing about PRIDE was the Bushido events! I love watching those on DVD.

Right kick, Hospital.
Left kick, Cemetery.
-Mirko Cro Cop.

I loved Heath Herring kneeing fools from the North South..

Mark Hunt vs CroCop and Mark Hunt vs Wandy, Hunt was just so much fun to watch.

Gilbert Yvel's cheating ways

Coleman winning the 2000GP

Diaz shocking the world by subing Gomi

Lidell vs Mezger(one of the best fights ever)

Soccer Kicks and Stomps

Sergei brutalizing fools....

Yea, PRIDE was awesome.

Call me whatever you want, but my interest in MMA has drop severely since the fall of PRIDE. It's just that nothing compared to it, and the fights, boring or not, were so fun to watch.

My favorite PRIDE fight was Don Frye v Yoshihiro Takayama, that fight was so intense and Frye beat the shit out of Takayama. I doubt that there will ever be another MMA fight like that again, at the end Takayama's face looked like black and blue play-doh.
