Not very good.

I'm more of a UFC fan myself, and without this starting a HUGE arguement, I want you Pride fans to tell me why Pride is better then the UFC. I watched an open weight tournament from a little while ago, and it was like watching paint dry. Nothing over exciting happened, expect for one little guy did a front rolling kick, which actually made him lose the match. But still, how can you even compare UFC and Pride?

You really can't just watch one fight and form an opinion. Watch some Wanderlai Silva, Fedor Emelianenko, Mircko "CroCop" Filipovic, Mark Hunt, Genki Sudo and other top Pride fighters fights, and then decide if you like it or not. There are some damm good matches out there.

PRIDE is not more amusing than UFC but has better fighters and makes far more money due to the location it performs in. UFC is more lopsided and has fighters from only North America and a tiny portion from Brazil. PRIDE has fighters from all over the world: Japan, Brazil, USA, Russia, Croatia, Samoa and those small islands, etc. But UFC is more fun to watch since it is lopsided and more sadistic. A cage is more cool than some ropes you can't pound a guy against. But I like them both. The only organization I dislike is King of the Cage which is a wannabe UFC organization as K-1 is a wannabe PRIDE organization.

Cro-Cop and Mark Hunt were both in this tournament I watched. It was some open weight tournament or something. And making money has nothing to do with which ogainization is better. I think that the UFC's fighters are better technically, but if the PRiade fighters were better at anything, it would be the brutallity of it all. But other than sheer saveragy, UFC dominates.

I watched the two most recent PPVs from each organization, UFC 61 and Pride Absolute Tournament, and the Pride event was far and away the better show IMO. So I guess it depends on what event you happened to watch.

I do think money does play a factor as the best fighters will go to whoever offers them the most. That's true of any occupation, MMA is no different.

BTW, I'm suprised to hear K-1 makes more money than Pride? I've seen fighters leave K-1 to fight in Pride (ex. Hunt, Crocop) so I assumed Pride pays more. K-1 does seem to have more of a global presence though as they have cards all over the globe.

I'd suggest looking into some of the lower weight-class events. Most of the Pride Bushido events that are used to venue their lower weight classes tend to be more fast-paced and finish oriented. But, then again, that's how it usually is with any fighting event wether it be UFC, K-1, Boxing, etc.

For myself, I find the Pride vs. UFC debate more annoying than anything. I like watching fights between trained fighters, and having something there as an alternative venue is great for everyone involved, especially the fans. There is a different style in how it's run, and there are some phenomenal fighters. Some can't adjust to the differences, some can. In the end, if it doesn't meet your expectations, then it's back to seeing what UFC has to put on the plate, right?

Things are looking like MMA is going to explode to the point that all Pride vs UFC debates are going to end soon. Me, I'm looking forward to the day that we'll be able to crown a unified "undisputed" champ.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

OK then

Coppershark, did you see the last UFC PPv. That AA VS Silvia fight was a doozie! 25 minutes of PURE ACTION!!!!
I've seen more action watching National Geographics " When turtles f@#k".
Frank Mir also put on a hell of a show too don't ya think??? Gassed at the 2 minute mark. He must of been training at a BUDWEISER factory!

I'm just wondering, on a scale of 1-10 how would you rate both PPVs then?
granted the Pride GP wasn't the best, but still was at least 3 points higher than UFC Bitter Rivals!
