How I see it

I only counted fighters who were established in their respective organization (my criteria was pretty much that their primary organization had become UFC or Pride and they had at least 5 fights in that organization). I only counted Pride v UFC matches that occurred after a fighter had been identified by my criteria as a fighter for one organization.

There were some fighters I didn't count because of questionable allegiance (e.g. Kevin Randleman was fully absorbed as a Pride fighter and fought no UFC fighters after being absorbed into Pride).
I also counted the Gomi-Diaz fight because it was a superb example of an established UFC fighter versus an established Pride fighter... even though one or more parties was high as a kite during the fight.

I'm retarded for marking that one wrong, but give me examples of other fights that you think meet the criteria of established pride fighter vs. established ufc fighter.

I don't think that will be necessary boris. I think at this point in time, we've all realized that some fighters adapt better to the cage and their style works well in a different environment with different rules and some don't. I would say more or less the score is about even. You've got dissapointments such as Crocop, then champs like Nog and Rampage. Both orgs had skillful fighters, I just liked Pride's rules and ring more a long with other small things that made it a wonderful organization.
