Thanks guys for all the help with my newbness. And yeah, I knew at the time I posted last that Pride wasn't aroud anymore, I just meant that I was really gonna like it. I found out one of my other friends that helped introduce me to MMA has a bunch of the old Pride dvds this whole time. Talk about holding out on someone, lol. He gave me the ones he thought were the best (2005 gp, 2000 gp, 2003 gp, and some of the Bushido events). And I have to say, from watching the 03 gp events, Wanderlei Silva has to be my favorite fighter by far. I thought this whole time that Rampage Jackson was this unbeatable monster, and the Silva dude goes out and demolishes him like he's nothing.

BTW, this might sound really dumb, but are Anderson Silva and Wanderlei Silva related at all?

This Christ you preach, I know. But who are you?

No they aren't. Silva is a really prevalent last name in Brazil...kind of like Smith or Jones around here

Anderson Silva
Wanderlai Silva
Thiago Silva
Antonio Silva

And all these guys listed at Sherdog in the database...

Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

between most mma companies (ufc, stikeforce ..ect) they are pretty much the same rule wise just with subtle differences, for example in the UFC you can elbow the face and head of a ground opponent but in Strikeforce you cannot, allot of teh more extreme moves from pride are not allowed in america though so you wont see orgs adopt them like soccerkicks to the head ect.

most orgs have some great fighters in them and so I urge people to watch different orgs instead of liniting themselves to one org for they will be missing out on allot,

like someone else mentioned too K-1 is a great thing to watch if you are into stand up battles for they have some of teh best strikers anywhere, I personally get bored with stand up fights so i watch allot of grappling BJJ tournaments and what not...honestly if you are just starting out watching mma I would watch both for they will help you get a grasp on what fighters in MMA are doing, plus you can sound all elite to your friends when you mention some obscure move to them or be like ooh that guy is going for a gogoplata ect..

but yeah feel free to keep asking questions in this thread ill try and pop in the newbie section every so often, and if your question does not get answered for a while feel free to pm us.

also dont be affraid of posting some of your questions the the general mma section or the different org questions for most of the people are really nice and if anyone gives you crap, pm me and i will feed them to swpthleg

Sherdog is garbage, if you want to research a fighters record go to they have the Official MMA Database for The Association of Boxing Commisions.

If you got the channel avilable to ya, HD Net is awesome ( to see if its part of your provider), every friday is Inside MMA with Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice, and they show alot of the smaller shows like King of the Cage and MFC, aswell as the japanese Dream and Sengoku shows. The japanese shows are sometimes live starting at like 3amest, or replayed the friday after at 10pm est. And they show the K-1 events.

Just a suggestion for new people or those who didnt know before. and no.... i do not work for them heh i just love MMA and this is the best channel for it right now.
