UFC vs PRIDE

Hopefully the debate over PRIDE fighters being superior to UFC can finally be put to rest and everyone can see it has
more to do with a fighters mindset and preperation going into a fight be it in a cage or a ring.

The Giffin/Rua fight has actually renewed my belief that styles make fights and you're only as good as your last round.

Sure PRIDE had some great talent but having most of them in the UFC now only proves how much parity there truly is in MMA.

So losses by Crocop and Rua who were both great Pride fighters mean nothing?

Thank you! Pride was not better than UFC, and UFC is/was not better than Pride. Certain fighters may be better than other certain fighters, and even that can change on any given night.

Hahaha GET OVER IT man, Pride was overrated as shit and NOOO Pride is not greater than ufc. At best theyre even.

Oh and your little breakdown there is retarded because Silva is as much a Pride fighter as Barnett is a UFC fighter.
