i think the pride was a little different.. as like someone else said, it was for fedor to fight an american.. and as they advertised, "only one man wanted to FACE fedor" meaning the other opponnents turned it down..

Getting the gears in motion for the Tomaz Drawl Bandwagon!

It's not just the UFC and Dana White that do this. PRIDE does it too. It's not just the Fedor/Coleman fights either. I'm sure everyone will find an excuse for each and every one of these but here are a few PRIDE fights that never should have happened.

Fedor vs Coleman 2 - Coleman way past his prime
Fedor vs Zulu - Zulu is a joke, not a champion opponent
Big Nog vs Nastula - Nastuala's first ever MMA fight
Wandy vs Iwasaki - Nobody even knows who that guy is, he is 0-1 in MMA
Randleman vs. Ohara - Ohara is 0-2 in MMA, and this was back when Randleman was one of the best
Sakuraba vs. Arsene - Arsene is 1-1 in MMA
Little Nog vs. Nakamura - Nakamura is decent now but at the time of this fight Nakamura was 0-0 in MMA and lil Nog was a top 5 HW, possibly even top 3
Kharitonov vs. Peterson - Peterson's first MMA fight and he is now 1-1 in MMA


Well that's about all I got

ur point is good but none of those fight was in the main event of their perpective Card. Im not saying all UFC maint even worth crap( most of time) Silva Vs Franklin was pretty good and GSP and Hughe was awsome and Hughes vs Bj. But on other hand Pride or even meca in Brasil put more decent main event more often.

Oh ok I get what you're saying now. Yea I don't really like how shitty UFC cards are either. Even if PRIDE babies their champions too at least they have badass cards filled with big names every PPV.

I think Sylvia-Couture is a non-issue. I'm a big UFC guy but i really believe Cro Cop is going to destroy whoever has the belt. The guy is a monster.
