Switching orgs messes up alot of people due to new adjustments to the rules. When Rizzo switched from UFC to PRIDE he got slaughtered by Sergei and Roman. Belfort was an unstoppable machine in the UFC, but lost to Henderson, Saku, and Overeem.

It's not the ORG, its the FIGHTER.

Not with a better wrestling pedigree maybe but there are plenty of fighters that use their wrestling and top control much better than Hendo does IMO.

I completely agree.

Case in point:

Anderson Silva in Pride(3-2-0): To be honest, he didn't look all that impressive when he was there. Heck, he lost to Daiju Takase who was 4-7 going into that fight.

Anderson Silva didn't look good until he went to Cage Rage after he left Pride, and then became a monster when he came into the UFC.

He evolved, got better, and was probably more comfortable working in a cage.

If he fought the best Pride had to offer when he was there at the time, he would've gotten demolished I think. After having improved over time as a fighter, if he fought them again he'd probably murder many of them.

As others have said, these guys are aging, and either improving their skillsets, or are standing still and getting run over by fighters who are continually improving.

Obviously the original poster never watched Pride. The guys that were top in Pride are getting older, same with the top ufc guys. Fedor would crush all their asses period.

This. Right Here. The above is what I always think when I see a thread about Prides fallen heroes.

Look at the Pride champs falling? Well man, look at the UFC champs falling also. These guys who had reigns have equally been knocked off. Pride and the UFC.

As the TS are you going to address anyone's points or just sit back and watch as everyone goes against what you say?
