You know what really sucks! I started getting into Pride a few months before it went out of business. So yeah, I missed out.

Pride had amazing fights like Hector Lombard vs Mousasi and Sergei vs Nog and Cro Cop vs Randleman, fights that today's UFC fan would never understand the important of.
I really liked Lombard vs Gono.

And shit, Suloev vs Bustamante was fun stuff, too.

Pride rawked.

We're trying.

You say "Sergei" like there's not a few Russian guys called Sergei who may have floated in and out of various fight promotions in the last 10 years.

I assume you mean Kharitonov.

Kharitonov, he's the only man to beat Overeem at HW. He's beaten Semmy Schilt, Werdum, Pedro Rizzo, KO'd Shogun's brother Ninja... and had tough fights with Big Nog, Monson, Aleks Emelianenko...

I dont miss PRIDE all that much. It was just an org, its the fighters that make me watch MMA. Although I do miss a few aspects of Pride that I would like to see in the UFC and other orgs.

I loved the entrances. Yeah, I know, I fail and am uncool.

Unhappy PRIDE Checks

I miss the fact that all these guys were going to Japan cause of the payroll they were getting, something only Affliction tried to match!

We can still DREAM!

Pride was a true martial arts SHOW. UFC is more like a sporting event. Hidehiko Yoshida in his prime, choking people out with his gi, Kharitonov demolishing dudes with his boxing, Wanderlei on a murder spree,CC with his high kicks... I can't go on I'm gonna cry.

The UFC isn't just a sporting event. If you wanna argue that, you can also say that PRIDE was more like the WWE with all the Entrances, announcement girl and all that stuff ( even through I love exactly this )

I think the UFC like they are now, is a lot better like PRIDE ever has been. For example just take only a look at the current champs the UFC represents. The whole UFC book is so well written, all these outstanding characters wich are holding belts at the moment In my eyes PRIDE never reached this stage! Include the contenders as well.

I'm not sure I follow. You can't argue that PRIDE was like WWE because it had great fighters and more than great matches. The show aspect was a plus not the main thing. UFC has great fighters and great matches but it lacks the show aspect. The entrances are poorly done, the intros are ridiculous compared to PRIDE, fighters can't wear shoes or gi's etc. If UFC would had those things it would be awesome!
