Pride Owns Ufc!!!!
 
only thing UFC ever did better than pride is produce WW fighters...who cares about a welter weight..i dont know who was saying Silva would lose to the Ice man but they are out of their mind. i feel like the only fighter in UFC who would be a top 10 HW in Pride is Andre Arlavski witht he propper preperation and training.. Silva got lucky in that 2nd fight cuz he got dropped the same exact way..Also, people from UFC graduate to Pride.. Give Arlavski the same training the Fedor has and we will see the next Kharitonov in the making. Pride hands down brings more fans and more entertainment to the sport!

UFC is more popular than Pride, so it doesn't bring more fans or entertainment to the sport. Pride is growing in popularity, thought. But this is just my opinion.

Not another UFC<>Pride thread.

This shit is elementary.

Well yes, PRIDE owns UFC because PRIDE performs in a country with bigger stadiums and population unlike UFC. And plus all of the good and popular UFC fighters usually ditch UFC because PRIDE offers them huge contracts. Look, PRIDE has all the good fighters and champions: Fedor Emelianenko (he can kill any heavyweight in the world besides Rutten), Antonio Rodrigo Nogeira, Wanderlei Silva (he owned in UFC), and Dan Henderson. The only fighter in the UFC that is better than one of those fighters due to his division is Rich Franklin who can beat Dan Henderson. Rich Franklin will probably end up in PRIDE soon if he loses his title.

And I also dislike it when people say PRIDE is more popular than UFC just because the audience attendances are way bigger. UFC actually is more popular considering a lot of people gather around and order it on PPV rather than paying 100 bucks to go to a stadium and watch it.

True, I still like UFC a little more than PRIDE because the main events in UFC end viciously. And older UFC events are fun to watch over and over again unlike PRIDE events where you only watch once than find it boring.

Who cares about a welterwight?!?!?! that has to be the most moronic comment I have ever heard, George St. Pierre , Matt Hughs, BJ Penn, Sean Sherk, Carlos Newton, Joe Riggs, Ivan Salavary , Pat Militech, Frank Trigg, I could go on and on you can not deny the absolute talent of these fighters

Also in the LHW div, Randy Cotoure Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, Vitor Belfort, Jeremy Horn(on occasion) Evan Tanner

HW, Ricco Rodriguez, Silvia , Arlovski, Rizzo,

The list goes on and on and on, what did Pride produce, maybe 10 big name fighter who anybody gives a shit about. come on man.

Pride draws bigger crowd but think about it
Pride is held in Tokyo, given the sheer population and fighting culture it is only natural the crowds are huge.

Vanderlei is exciting, but he is a wild swinger, A world class striker (like Vitor Belfort) would destroy him. Like Vitor did in 44 seconds!

I have said it 100 times on this forum and I will say it again, the fighters the "graduate to Pride" are the former top fighters in the UFC who no longer hold their own against the new more talented fighter coming in to the UFC. When you say that Pride offers them bigger contracts, this may be true, but when you are a big name UFC fighter you get a hell of alot more like huge endorsment deals, Tito has had a role in a movie, and the fame is much higher. Any fighter who can make it and has a choice will pick UFC.

Do some research

I would rather watch the welterweights in the UFC fight rather than the lightweights in PRIDE because the welterweights in UFCF are the most talented in the UFC.
