Get stuffed, man. Herring last fought in K-1 and he then made the move to WFA and UFC bought out WFA if I am correct. Herring isn't Pride, Herring is Herring. He had an off night and he fought a hell of a wrestler. O'Brien could go on to face top contenders and lay on top of them, you know. Why are people shitting on Herring and now Pride? Gosh..

Becasue everyone and their mother on here was talking about this guy being one of the 'elite' fighters that would walk through the talent inferior UFC and how he was gonna beat up Tim Sylvia and yadda yadda. So its funny watching these Pride fan boys have to wipe egg off their faces.


Now God I hope Eddie Sanchez knocks Cro Cop TFO. Man would that really make my day.

haha, yeah i thought it was funny how people were saying hes the one that could dethrone Sylvia..i know styles make fights but even so..this guy was like a nobody he lost too..Sylvia would walk through Jake O'Brien and i think hed wreck Herring as well.

I agree that fight sucked and O'Brien has a lot of work to do. I guess I'm just pissed that all that hype was given to Herring when he had the worst take down defense I've seen in a long time. If O'Brien had any GNP skills at all, Herring's face wouldve been hamburger in round 1.

Fav Fighters: Arlovski, Filipovic, Franklin, Hughes, Fedor

It's not that i'm into bashing Pride or anything. Just got sicking of hearing about the UFC's inferior talent. And how PRIDE has all the best fighters, blah, blah, blah.

It looks like so people might need to rethink their opinions.

i thought it was funny how everytime o'brien backed off herring would get mad and raise his arms like WTF and then o'brien would shoot and get mounted on herring and herring would roll over and o'brien would take his back. this got funnier each time it happened. so funny that i couldnt even watch it. at least herring didnt fight like a ***** and went balls out the last 15 seconds unlike some fighters who just accept their defeat.

I love it when UFC fans say stupid sh*t.

In a PRIDE ring, O'brien would have been yellow carded and possibly even DQ'd on points if he had kept that up.

No more layngay. Please wrestlers, if you are going to come to this sport, watch Mark Coleman, Kevin Randleman and Randy Couture. Not Tito Ortiz.
