Best fights ever in pride?

Im not talking about classic fights here, like royce gracie vs sakuraba(which was objectivly not a great fight)

fights where i could show to some1 who has never seen mma and i want to convince him how great mma is. So if i had one fight only to show, which one would it be?

right now im thinking fedor vs nogueira 1, it seems like a good fight to show, its pretty complete with strikes and subs, but no stand up i guess..

any ideas?

Shogun Lil Nog
Hansen Azeredo
Fedor Mirko

Pretty much everything Organik mentioned in the "which rematch" thread.

Wanderlei vs Rampage 1 & 2 are by far my favorites ever in Pride

Other classics are: Wanderlei vs Kondo/Saku/Hunt/CC/Fujita/Mezger & HENDO

Fedor vs CC/Fujita & Nog 1
CC vs Nog
Nog vs Sapp
Gomi vs Azeredo 1
Igor vs Goodridge
Shogun vs LiL Nog
Herring vs Nog 1 & 2

igor has some more great fights too

Frye vs Takayama.

That is the true definition of a fight. Both men putting it all on the line, and trading sickening punches. It's short, so whoever you'd show it to wouldn't get bored.

i liked Fedor vs Cro Cop


cro cop vs wandy was good...

randleman vs fedor....

Babalu vs fedor just case he was taking a beating

Fedor
Henderson
GSP
Lyoto Machida
Aleks E
Josh Barnett
Big Nog
BJ Penn
Anderson Silva
Cro Cop Musosi and bada hari

If your trying to get someone to like Pride I would probably show a more lopsided fight with alot of action instead of say Fedor/Mirko. That was a great fight and really exciting for someone like us but your trying to impress someone who knows nothing about the sport I;d start them off with more of a beating.

Then once they see Cro Cop and Fedor dominate a bunch of guys then you can show them Cro Cop/Fedor that way it would be more exciting for them because they would realize probably the 2 badest men on the planet are battling it out.
