Pride fighters overated???

Silva lost
Shogun lost
Henderson lost (twice)
etc
etc
etc
I have not watched much Pride fights but have listened on here to all the so called MMa experts about how good it was.(Have also read on many other sights about how fixed it was)

Yes rampage is LH champion, but come on he had one fight before he got a title shot. (ONE FIGHT)
And has had ONE defence in what 6 months in the most stacked weight division on the planet.

Please tell me i'm wrong but over rated ????

Me thinks yes

Both of Hendo's losses in the UFC were to PRIDE GUYS. Both of whom beat UFC champions to get their belts. I think each org had their share of good fighters but that portion of your argument just made me LOL.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

You'd be very wrong, I mean Nog is the HW champ, Henderson lost two fights but both were to Pride fighters in Anderson Silva and Rampage, Some losses have to do with the rules but outside of Cro Cop its not like the Pride guys are losing to nobodies they are losing to top competition. This topic has been beat to death but your arguments are extremely weak even if the topic were new.

Thumbs up

Anderson Silva... class no arguments there..

Nog, come on fought an overweight last minute replacement in Herring and still nearly (should have been )got knocked out. Herring that fought at last UFC would have killed him...
Sory but Henderson loseing to two Pride fighters means nothing...
Someone out there must have the statistics but I'm sure they're poor and only the 'best 'pride fighters would have been signed up.
just makes me laugh a bit about guys on here saying how good pride was.
well why did it fold then.....
Wanderla apparently is a killer but (a still) out of shape liddell wiped the floor with him.....

Yes point taken(and this is a debate).
But Nog very poor HW champion,
Rampage as i said before one fight got him a title shot and one defence in 6 months.....Thought champions were meant to take on all comers..
Silva no debate he is class....
But what about all the othe Pride 'greats'

Come on Shogun got beaten by Forrest' my best win was bonnar but the people love me' Griffen. And he is the great Rampage's next oppenent...
