Best PRIDE(s) Event?

I personally think PRIDE 33 is one of the best MMA events that have occured, if I'm honest, I haven't watched a tonne of PRIDE, but that's why I'm asking for your guys/gals opinions, as I plan to buy a few PRIDE DVD's.

So, which PRIDE event(s) is worth a hard copy?

Don't be scared homie!

off the top of my head with very little thought shockwave 2004 and high octane stand out in my mind.

This was the best Pride FC show ever imho:



Besides those awesome fights, you also got the Interim HW title fight with Big Nog's unforgettable 2nd round comeback against Cro Cop. This youtube is the part 1 of the fight, if you want to watch the whole thing, click on 2 at the end of this one and click 3 and the end of that one

Final Conflict 2005 worth a shout? Got Shogun abusing Overeem and Arona to take the Tournament victory and Fedor vs Cro Cop as a bonus. What more could you ask for? PRIDE 10 wasn't bad either. Got Sakuraba vs Renzo Gracie, Wanderlei knocking out Guy Mezger, Gilbert Yvel head-kick KO'ing Gary Goodridge, Shamrock vs Fujita, Vovchanchyn vs Inoue, and Belfort vs Matsui. Pretty awesome card for 2000! PRIDE 28 worth a shout too. The 2nd fight in the triology between Wanderlei Silva and Rampage Jackson, this was the one where Wandy KO'd Rampage with a knee and he ended up unconcious through the ropes. Card also features Cro Cop vs Barnett, Henderson-Nakamura, Mark Hunt finishing Dan Bobish, Alistair Overeem, Alex Emelianenko, Ricardo Arona and Heath Herring. Pretty nice card. PRIDE really did put on some awesome events!

...Agree. 2003 Total Elimination & Final Conflict are tops for me. I'm waiting for the day the UFC has an open stadium event with 40 to 50k fans in attendance. Pride drew that number at every event...

I'd say the original PRIDE Shockwave in 2002 was a good show. There is a reason why it still holds the record for largest MMA audience ever. Though I agree PRIDE Final Conflict 2003 was also a good show!
