Which fight do you think is the best?

I like Fedor vs CroCop, that fight went the distance and was a very good match-up.

Discuss.

It was a good fight, agreed. Although I thought it would have been a longer fight, I liked the Vitor Belfort and Silva fight back in the day. Maybe b/c I'm a huge Belfort fan but, lmao.:thumbsup:

It's kind of hard to have disappointing fights in Pride because of the yellow cards. Imagine if the UFC had yellow cards, that Sylvia vs Arlovski fight would have been different IMO.

Shamrock vs Frye was great.

The Fedor vs Mirko fight is number one for me though.........Just the feel of seeing these two titans go at is was nerve recking. The fact that I like both didn't help ethier.

I would have to go with either....

Pride 26 Kazuyuki Fujita ROCKS Fedor with a solid blow that leaves him dancing...then lands a few more all while Fedor is trying to find and move his feet. He wisely and barely gets to tie up. and is able to recover then take the victory via NASTY rear naked choke...in deep!! Stands in victory with his eye all bloody! It was a great battle...short but one of my favs.

OR Kevin Randleman and Fedor....TEXTBOOK ARMBAR!!!! I love a great armbar finish :D

OR either of the times Shamrock beat Bas Rutten. I heard him say prior to his first fight with him..."I know Ken is good at leg locks so we trained how to escape and how to avoid...." Then before their next fight saying "he caught me last time...but this time will be different I know what hes got" And yet SHAMROCK GOT YA :p
But those are Pancrase and not Pride I know.... :D

I'd say randleman fedor has to be up there because of that crazy slam. But the wand vs. rampage where amazing. Or the frye vs Yoshihiro Takayama. They just stood there and threw punches.

The slam was nice....but he completly gassed out from it. After the slam all he did was hold Fedor and eat 5-6 blows to the side of his head. Then could barely do anything more while he got the Kamura defeat. Then before he stood up he was breathing way too heavily.....IT was a forking awsome suplex though!!!
