Personaly, I have always supported both organizations and I don't understand the pointless debate about which one has better this or that. Support MMA, not pointless arguments.

Well I knew that. As far as Gracie Ju-Jitsu being the best technique, to me when a "grappler" fought a "striker" the "grappler" always came out on top. If Royce Gracie didn't win then another grappler took his spot.

Xphilter my friend, I am sorry but you need to watch some more MMA before making any further statements about it. I don't care who the two fighters are or what organization they both fight for. When you get two pro athletes in the ring or cage who have trained their ass's off to get there, anything can happen.

Have you ever watched the two fights between Randleman and CroCop? You must not have. Because if you had, those fights alone would teach you to never underestimate anyone.

Keep in mind that I am not talking shit or trying to insult you. I'm just pointing out facts.

ur out of ur mind, chuck waas out of shape and out of his element ova there in pride, bring rampage in the cage and we'll see wat happens..as for wandy, that would be awesome, but i think chuck wit pick his spots and win a decision

I know. It's almost as crazy as thinking that Randleman could possibly K.O. Mirko CroCop. Oh wait, that did happen.

Or maybe it's as crazy as thinking that CroCop could possibly submit Randleman. Oh wait, that happened also.

See where I am going with this?

Meaning any fighter can beat any other fighter on any day? I agree, for example Sylvia against Arlovski.

Then again Randleman and Crocop are both talented fighters.

All of the fighters at that level are there for a reason. Chuck could KO Silvia and silvia could KO Chuck.

That'd be a fun fight and it would be pretty even. Silvia's got the reach advantage but i think chuck has more power (but i'm not sure).

Any fighter can beat any other fighter on any day, that's why we watch, isn't it. If it was predictable it wouldn't be any fun.

See that's where I seem to disagree with most people here. I don't see UFC and Pride on equal level, especially not in talent. Chuck gets to pick who he fights, gets paid well and receives his celeb status. He doesn't care about the quality of the fights he is in or the fight it self as long as the endorsements keep flowing.

UFC is just like any other American sport, all about flash and no substance. It makes it a lot easier for fans with lack of knowledge to watch. Most people understand a punch or a kick, thats why they have to stand the fighters up when they are on the ground too long. Poor Americans will get bored if they don't know what's going on, which in affect will cause less interest and less revenue.

I heard Pride tried coming over to America to host events, but the commission wanted changes to the ring (octagon), rules (stupid 5 minute rounds) and others. So they wanted to change Pride into the UFC. Pride turned around and said EFFF You. Good for them.

Once again I will have to disagree. I don't want to see any fighter lose to any other fighter on any day. I want to see the better fighter win. Not some turd like Diego that's unable to put someone away because he lacks the skill to do so then throw a few punches wildly at the end and know he will win the decision because of it.

I Do Agree That Ufc Is Not At The Level Of Pride Although Being An American I Guess I Wouldn't Understand That.i Wouldn't Say They Lack Substance Though.

I Also Say When A Fighter Goes To Another Organization To Fight They Usually Don't Do Well.that's Pride Fighters In Ufc And Ufc Fighters In Pride I'm Not Sure Why That's Just Usually How It Goes.

And Yes Diego's Fight Sucked For Both Fighters They Should Be Embarrassed.

I agree, the UFC in not on the same level as Pride because of the presentation of the UFC in America. It's almost a boxing atmoshere with celebrities and superstar in the audience. The UFC fighters are talented in their own right.
