Mention of Pride....

Last night I was there live at the Arco Arena, and a group of people behind me started talking about how horrible the Monson vs Sylvia fight was. Then another person shot out that this would never happen in Pride, thats why their fights are that much more exciting. Soon I heard everyone talking about Pride and how Fedor would kick Sylvia's ass, Liddell is a chump compared to Silva etc. I'm surprised Pride has gained that much fame in so short of time. I have a feeling Pride will become big in the U.S.

Liddell isnt a chump, but no way should he be automatically considered the number 1 light heavy weight in the world without fighting the best in the world. Randy was good, Tito Ortiz sucks and will get knocked out again if he cant lay and gay Liddell, and Jeremy horn is good also. But besides that...he hasnt really been challanged...and when he was in Pride...he got dominated. Sure hes grown as a fighter, but hasnt fought enough of the world class fighters to be automatically considered number 1. Hes the best the UFC has besides GSP and Anderson Silva. Those 3 are the best in the UFC. Except of course mr. HAMMMAAFISSSS ELLLBBOOOSSS! TERRA SERRA! homo...haha

That fight with Monson was a ****ing joke though. Props to Monson for trying...that shit was not his fault whatsoever. Tim obviously had the advantage 4/5 rounds and failed to utilize a 10 inch reach advantage...like COME ON! Sure Monson has a chin of steel, but 3 full rounds of stand up...1 round of sylvia winning on ground...and only 1 round where monson had a chance. What a chump the pant shitter is eh boys?

I want Aleksander E. to come over and take the belt from him swiftly.

Pride is going to get more and more popular because of the rules. The fights are more exciting becasue the fighters loose money if they lay and gay and stall. Its amazing! I just hope that Pride doesnt do their shows in America EVER...the rules suck! I want 10 minute first rounds, and knees and kicks to the head on downed opponents.

Sorry little kiddy, but that won't happen in the greatest country in the world, they are told what they have to watch and how it should be watched!

PRIDE COME TO CANADA!!!! WE WILL ACCEPT THE RULES FOR ALL YOUR GLORY!!!!

and then the Americans can come to canada to watch it.


Sorry guys, but you aren't going to get Pride anytime soon, because it's too hard for your sensitive eyes.

For most of you, ignorance is bliss, but for me it's about the truth.

4-0, Admins taken down in bets 2 (asskicker, Jdun11)

Well you gotta understand that when Liddell went to Pride he was picked apart by Rampage, which at the time was one of their biggest stars. I personally DO NOT think Chuck is a chump whatsoever. He is great and one of the best in the world. I however do believe that he would no way be champ in Pride. But he sure is King of the Octagon.

Chuck is a chump compared to the best Pride fighters, but then again, any belt holder in UFC couldn't beat the belt holder in Pride.
