they are very comparable
@HW SF has Fedor, Ubereem, Werdum, Antonio Silva, Barnett compared to Pride that had Fedor, Cro Cop, Big Nog, Barnett
No SF has Fedor(2010) Ubereem (V2.0), Werdum, Antonio Silva and Barnett (2010).
Pride had Fedor,CroCop, Nog and Barnett in there primes, Pride also had guys like Don Frye, Gary Goodridge, Mark Coleman, Gilbert Yvel, Heath Herring (who was a legit top 5 HW when he was in Pride) Semmy Schilt, Aleks E,Yoshida, Kharitonov, Mark Hunt, etc,
@205 SF has Feijao, Mousasi, Lawal, Hendo, Babalu, Roger Gracie compared to Pride's Shogun, Wanderlei, Lil Nog,Arona
You forgot Mezger, Sakuraba,Vernon White. Vitor Belfort, Hendo,Rampage, Jeremy Horn, Kevin Randleman,Minowman, etc,
the big difference is that the ufc is now 3-4 times bigger then it was so the ratio is greater.
No, I am gonna try to explain this nicely because I suspect your rather new to the sport or have a limited knowledge of the historical significance or historical accomplishments of many of the Pride era fighters. You cannot judge a company so long past based on the current success or failure of the fighters that once called it home. Many have retired, some were getting on then and many others just are not at there peak anymore and cannot compete at the same level. SF has a decent HW division but they do not even remotely rival the depth that Pride had. In fact short of possibly the current UFC roster no organization in history has been able to compete with that depth. With all due respect you couldn't be more wrong.
