Pride was entertaining, but wasn't a sport. UFC was establishing itself, and it did just that in evolving into the amazing promotion it is today, with the best fighters of all time squaring off against each other all the time.

If JDS Vs Velasquez happened in 2006, you'd be talking to me about it now.
Anderson was a Pride fighter.

Yeah sure, it had some epic fights. But the Pride top guys dont match up with the current UFC top guys, so to me there is no point in compairing a less talented company. UFC fighters right now is the best collection of MMA fighters assembled by FAR.

He probably would have made a Pride all star team if prime Pride went against UFC now, yet UFC Silva would demolish anyone standing in his way if that was to take place. Current UFC fighters > Prime Pride fighters.

LOL, take your blinders off. Pride only had two weight divisions and their top fighters back then would easily match up with what the UFC has today.

Fedor in prime
Cro Cop in prime
Wanderlei in prime
Henderson in prime
Nog in prime
Shogun in prime
Rampage in prime
Randelman in prime


And those are just some of the obvious ones, WTF were you going on about again?

JDS beats prime Cro Cop, Randelman and Nog, Jon Jones beats prime Wanderlei, Henderson, Shogun and Rampage. The only name there that would have potentially stopped a current UFC champion would have been Fedor, who would have had an insane fitht with JDS.

Current UFC fighters > Prime Pride fighters.

Loads of people gave me bad rep for this Please...open a discussion, what bothered you so much?

As has been said above, this isn't really about the LHW title. This is about the fact no one is watching TUF anymore.

And anyone concerned about Dana's soul, read that book his mother wrote. His own mother. The guy fractured his soul into 7 parts like Voldemort some time ago.

I didn't low rep you, but I still dont get why anyone talks like Lesnar got anything handed to him. He was given the hardest run of opponents in UFC history, and faired pretty well against them.

I still think Dana books this shit very well. People just like to point of the negatives. When we have amazing cards like 153 or FOX 5, people say "Wow, those fighters put on a show", but when we have weak cards people say "Man Dana White sucks". We only associate the bad fights with the people in charge, and not all the good ones. We are all MMA fans for a reason, and 90% of us is from Zuffa era UFC. It's both Dana and the other guys in charge that has got most of us to be fans, and if you hate them then theres a reason you continue to post in the UFC section of the website (because you still watch UFC). Show a little more appreciation to these people because they are pulling the strings to make this your favourite sport. Not everything goes out ways, fights happen that we dont want to see, but TUF with Sonnen WILL bring in some new fans, much more so than say Jones Vs Glover, and those new casual or pro wrestling fans might just turn out as hardcore fans, because none of us started as hardcore fans before we became casuals.

Your original argument was that MMA is at it's best right now, not who you think can beat who from days past.
