Could be, never thought of that. Although I personally look at all of them as Pride events.pt447 said:i think the guy was confused about "pride" events, and "bushido" events, as well as the tournaments and NYE special... comparatively few PRIDE events are titled, PRIDE X...
i mean, they are... but if you're looking at them on paper, maybe the fact that bushido events aren't "billed" as PRIDE events... that might be confusing... otherwise, i don't know what the guy was talking about... there are a whole pile of PRIDE's every year! in fact, there are comparritively more each year then there ever were... so i don't know where he was getting his info...:dunno:cabby said:Could be, never thought of that.

yeah MW(PRIDE calls MW, WW) and LW barring the occassional Minowa freakshow fight.cabby said:It's all MW in Bushido correct?
Ohh ic. I didn't know about Bushido really.Grabaka said:yeah MW(PRIDE calls MW, WW) and LW barring the occassional Minowa freakshow fight.
When Bushido 1st started it wasn't like it is now. Bushido was originally all weight classes, but it did cater to the smaller guys still. But originally guys like Mirko Cro Cop, Shogun Rua, Aleks Emelianenko, and other bigger fighters would fight on Bushido. It was a way to build them up and get them more experience before fighting on regular PRIDE shows. They switched it to the smaller fighters on Bushido 7, it's been that way since.
the mw's are 205 in japan. like wand is the mw champ. its all ww's and lw fights usually on bushido. it gets confusing this might help..cabby said:It's all MW in Bushido correct?
yeah i liked that concept as well..pt447 said:i liked when Bushido was "team vs team"... it was like that for a few shows... now it's all just LW and WW fights... they need the team thing again... with Red Devils now, it'd be sweet!
Red Devil's vs Chute box oh yeah........
well if all the top fighters are involved in the torny's who would fight?? thats why they have the guys that lose in the tourny's fight on the undercard of the later rounds. i think ufc biggest problem is they oversaturate us with mediocre cards, as opposed to have 5 really solid events, ufc has like 10 and none of them are as good as any of the pride events usually. i like prides format. i would rather have greta cards every couple months then have suck cards every month.herton17 said:I m not counting bushidos because then I would have to count UFNs for UFC. AS much as its better than UFN, it s not a real Pride event. I m not counting the tourneys because there was more than 5 or 6 few years ago if you count those as well.
