You guys are absolute MMA newbs if you think some scrub like Wanderlai has a chance vs Liddell.
Let me clear something up for you wannabee MMA'ers.
PRIDE = The absolute worst competition there is. Wanderlai could NOT hack it in the UFC, losing to both TITO ORTIZ and VITOR BELFORT, so he went to Pride. You want the truth? Thats the truth. He could not hack it in the Octagon, so he went to PRIDE where the Majority (NOT ALL) are sub-par fighters, and I give them nothing more than a Golf clap for their efforts.
K1 = WORSE than Pride. Don't even go there
UFC = All time best MMA there is, hands down, bar none. Best fighters come from UFC.
As I said already. WANDERLAI could not hack it in the UFC in the late nineties, and had to goto Pride to fight sub par fighters because of it. Now hes coming back, and going to get absolutely demolished, and smashT and crushT from Liddell, it won't even be worth watching. Wanderlei will be exiting preschool (Pride fighting) and skipping all the grade levels straight to College (UFC). He hasn't a chance in hell.
Do your research on the fighters who you guys think are good prior to just all of the sudden thinking they are going to come to the UFC and crush people. UFC has the absolute best fighters in World. Pride is like Pre-school in comparison. Get your facts striaght people
Pride is like WWF - Bunch of cream filled, fluffy ******ry bull shit. Welcome to 2006.. welcome to the UFC.
Oh yeah one last thing. PRIDE is like UFC in 1994.... Having Sumo wrestlers fighting Karate(TAE KWAN DO) specialists.. Its absolutely pathetic.. MMA has evolved so much, yet PRIDE still hasn't got it through their thick heads. Live in the now People!
Oh yeah, and as for BABALU -
UFC 40: Vendetta (11/22/02), Babalu was KO'd by a kick to the head from Chuck Liddell in 2:59 of the first round.
