Pride Fighters

Does Anyone Have An Idea Why Most Pride Fighters Get Their Ass Beat In Ufc. Like Minotauro,shogun,crocop,the Axe Murderer. They Looked Like They Were Completely Out Of Thier Zone. I Wonder If That Will Happen To Fedor.

Can you post a link to a video of that fight you're talking about where Minotauro gets his ass beat in the UFC? I must have missed that one.

This guy must be new to mma...

Minotauro is the UFC HW champ. (Randy isnt / shouldnt be anymore)

CroCop had his problems (broken ribs vs Crap Kongo)

shogun has had only 1 fight

Silva just destroyed one of the top UFC LHW contenders. He was most likely next in line for a title shot.

Jackson is the LHW Champ, coming from Pride.

Silva is the MW Champ, fought in Pride.

Pride fights are just as good as the UFC fighters. There are many more fighters the UFC could of gotten that are from Pride, who would most likely dominated. Gomi, Fedor, Arona, Lindland, Barnett just to name a few.

- Crocop lost passion for the sport when he fought in the UFC and the rules confused him since PRIDE's are way different

- Same for Wanderlei , but he got his A game back

- Nogueira is making UFC heavyweights look like todlers

- Shogun had alot going on (moving to America, getting married, surgery) so he couldn't properly train in Muay Thai and cardio

- Rampage is the #1 Light-heavyweight in the world

- Anderson Silva is the #1 Middleweight in the world

I could go on and on. Now tell me, since the PRIDE guys are fighting in UFC under their rules, do you think any UFC guys would do GREAT in PRIDE under PRIDE rules?

Wow man you have no idea what your talking about. I don't think I need to explain why since many people before me already have, but PRIDE in the old days was extremely scary. From the little I saw of it (and when I was new to MMA), I saw that Pride seemed to be a lot more explosive than the UFC. As a fool I also admit that I thought that Pride was so rough that lots of those fighters would eventually leave to the UFC since it was "easier".

I know what your thinking: "Bulls***! UFC ain easier than Pride!" Yeah I know. That was a while back remember? The difference is huge though and you cannot expect all those fighters to adjust quickly to the UFC while fighting in Pride for so long. That's my two cents.

Some Complaints and Grievances-

Lindland dominating the UFC? I wouldn't hold your breath! He couldn't do it the first time around what makes you think he could do it the second time.

Really don't see Gomi dominating someone like BJ Penn or Sean Sherk.

Also, Silva is not in title contention yet! Remember he is still coming off a fresh 3 losing streak! Lyoto is most likely next in line for a title shot! Edit: Sorry, I misread what you said abot Silva. I thought you said he was most likely the next man for a title shot. Please ignore!

Other then that you make some good points. Pride fighters are just as good as UFC fighters. Jackson, Nog, and Silva give prelude to that. Shogun may have had one bad showing but he could pop right back up and dominate the LHW division (Hoping for the future).

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
