...but it is.
I prefer to watch UFC more than Pride, and by no means am I biased towards either organization. I think they are about equal in skill when comparing the top guys in pride vs the top guys in the ufc (mostly excluding the HW division in the ufc. I think only AA would do okay). But have you ever noticed that alot of the guys in pride had shitty stints in the UFC. Kevin Randleman after losing to top competition in the UFC (Chuck and Randy and Rutten), Frank Trigg(after being embarassed by Matt Hughes Twice), and Vitor Belfort after getting beaten by the top competition in the ufc (randy chuck, and tito).
Even Wandy (my favourite fighter in MMA) did bad in the UFC. He got absolutely destroyed by Belfort at UFC Brazil and Belfort has lost to top competition in the UFC. Wandy also lost to Tito in the octagon as well. Yet Wandy is a legend in Pride.
Now I realize there are arguments that people can make supporting Pride (mostly surrounding how Tim Sylvia would get raped by almost every HW. That's why i said except the HW division above), but in the end the two fight organizations are probably about equal today.
But soon enough when UFC baits Wandy and Cro Cop with enormous amounts of money (not sure if Cro Cop already signed or not) Pride will become diminished. And didn't Fedor already sign with Bodog?
Damn, maybe Pride will go down hill sooner rather than later.
Anyway just something to think about before you say that Pride is alot better than the UFC.
