Igor Vovchanchyn, the most underrrted fighter to ever live.

he is harldly mentioned around these parts,
there are however a handfull of devoted fans, that know what hes all about.
I cant say ive ever been a big fan, which is kinda sad because he is a phenomenal fighter, I dont underrate him but I do not pay as much attention as i shud

When Shogun won the GP

If anyone hasn't seen the Gary Goodridge KO over Oleg Taktarov at PRIDE 1, watch that. Nasty nasty stuff.

Easily. Igor was a short, pudgy dude KO'ing bigger guys. He was (Still is, actually) amazing.

Vovy's fights with Goodridge should be watched by everyone, especially their GP 2000 fight, which was the best fight in the entire tourney.

Mezger got so robbed against not only Akira Shoji, but Saku and Arona, as well. Hell, he was also robbed against Rogerio. He was the anti-Dan Henderson.

We'll never see another fighter like Kazushi Sakuraba ever again. He was one in a million, and it freakin' sucks to see him at his current state. His fights with Braga, Renzo, White, Newton, Rampage, Goes and Igor Vovy were amazing. Hell, Saku just went over an hour with Royce and still put up a good fight against Igor freakin' Vovy, who was the scariest fighter in the world at that time period.

Wanderlei then killed Sakuraba and became the scariest fighter in the world. Wanderlei Silva vs Carl Malenko was so much fun to watch, because Malenko totally sucked and Silva schooled him.

Matsui needed to fight more dudes like Newton and Pele. Pele vs Matsui and Newton vs Matsui were awesome fights that should be watched by everyone.

Hey guys, remember when Mirko was awesome? Yeah, I miss those days.

Enson could've died against Igor. Igor put the guy in the hospital.

Satake was the stand-up version of Akira Shoji. Igor Vovy punched him in the face a ton in their fun fight.

Ouch, Andrei Kopylov almost bit his tongue off against Sperry. Wish that fight would've gone on longer, as it was an interesting ground fight, with Kopy looking comfortable on the ground against a great BJJ fighter.

Pride had many of the best fighters of the world, but some worse ones too. I remember Sean O'Haire who was ridiculous bad. He got instantly koed by butterbean lol.

Its my birthday coming up and I am going o be asking my wife to buy me Pride DVDs. Which are the best ones to get do you think?

CroCop's head kick KO's were beautiful. Talking about Vovchanchyn, that was probably CC's most vicious kick. It sounded like he cracked his jaw or something.

Shamrock-Ortiz 09-16-2008 05:57 PM

Yeah all the Mirko Headkick KO's were sick, seeing Aleks fall was pretty nuts. I love it when he just seems to clip them, Aleks, Wand, Dos(I think) with his ankle. And they just drop like a sack of shite. Then there is the one that connects CLEAN as you can get against Igor.

Mirko was a bad man, when he hit Dos Caras after the headkick, started walking away and went back for another punch.
