So, I guess the PRIDE fighters really...

have been better than the UFC fighters all this time. Jeez I would sure feel foolish for arguing otherwise...I'd feel like a complete moron who didn't know f-all about MMA.

How humiliating for those people
























I suggest you say your goodbyes to Chuck and Tim as well.

Hard to say for sure, no one is better than anyone else until they prove it.

These past fights should really show that the UFC is different from Pride. Fighting in a cage under U.S. rules is not the same game as fighting in Pride with japanese rules. The UFC is a much more strategic sport, where Pride is about aggression and decimation. In the UFC often your best bet is the lie on the ground and/or run away as we saw by Eddie Sanchez. And NO DISRESPECT to Eddie Sanchez whatsoever, he actually impressed me. He was smart about running away from CroCop and he landed a couple of clean blows to. On top of that, he took several kicks and never collapsed outright even though others woulda been KOed.


I don't think Pride fighters are better than UFC fighters thgouh, just check out GSP. Mikro Cro Cop is better than almost any heavyweight in the world though, so when he gets moved over to the UFC and rises to the top, that's more of an obvious statement about him and less about Pride itself.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

Oh god, another retard...first of all he made his name in Pride; and he'll always be known as Pride. And even if crocop destroys UFC figthers that will still show that Pride is better than UFC fighters...why??? because cro cop never won the heavyweight belt. Yes he wonthe OWGP but Fedor was not there...only if he beats fedor will he be number one...and any hardcore MMA would agree.

Well I do think their weight classes give them alot more experience against better fighters in Pride. Who is the best aside, I do think Prides Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight divisions have a hell of alot more depth.
