Pride 32 Was A Fun Show.
First Pride show in Vegas, and while it wasn't a blow away card, it was damn fun.
Robbie looked great against Joey Villasenor, who is a solid fighter. Swank flying knee, and this is the fight that made Robbie go from just a solid guy to a really solid guy.
Holy shit, Nakamura vs the guy who got utterly killed by GSP, Travis Galbraith, was fun. Wild striking from both men and a nice finish with Nak whomping poor Travis. I'm on a Kaz Nak kick right now. Nak executes a swank, swank throw at the end of the first. Kaz also cut a promo in engrish afterwards.
Phil Baroni: ADCC superstar. Nishijima impressed me in the Hunt fight. He never impressed me after that. Phil actually attempted an arm triangle. No shit.
Too bad Hunt couldn't fight Butterbean, but damn, I loved watching Butterbean kill Sean O'Haire, who sucks terribly.
Pawel did really good against Barnett. Funnily enough, Pawel got popped for roids and cold medicine after this fight. His excuse? It was in his Pride contract. No really, I'm serious.
Shogun got to show off his solid BJJ against a Hammer House guy, who probably gave the NSAC warmed up lemonade for piss. Wow, Randleman amazed me with his shitty, shitty leg-lock defense, which consisted of him laying down and kicking his legs.
Fedor beat Coleman so bad, that he made his kids cry. Coleman looked like the Toxic Avenger.
Plus, Wanderlei got to cut an interview, and Wandy is always the coolest dude ever.
Crazy Pride Lady was in full effect, and it was glorious. Plus, K freakin' Grant.
