Why would it matter if the company is dead or not? Pride had a bunch of great fights.



Tommy does The Sack this week dressed as The Ultimate Warrior. Not much more needs to be said.

I think you mean Bushido 9. That was the one with the tournaments that won a lot of Event of the Year awards from various websites.

Pride 10 is also outstanding.

It matters because if they watch PRIDE and get interested that will never happen again. They used different rules, company doesn't exist and most of the fighters don't even fight anymore. Not to mention fixed fights, a lack of drug testing and possible Russian mob ties. PRIDE is an awful example of what MMA should be.

Only a select few attraction fights were fixed. Who gives a shit if there was no drug testing? The fights were still awesome more often than not. And just because there are no knees/kicks to the head of a downed opponent these days, that doesn't mean he can't enjoy the fights.


Watch Pride, seriously. Some of the best fights of all time were during that era and if you want to get into MMA you'd be robbing yourself of a giant chunk of MMA's history if you don't.

Coleman, Goodridge and Rampage have all admitted stuff was fixed. Hell Cro Cop fought Del Rio in a mask and fake knocked him out. They rigged tournaments for Wanderlei. PRIDE to me is to MMA's history what the XFL is to football. It was a joke and very few fighters made it out with their dignity.

Just watch Fedor and Shogun's fights in Pride. Also, watch the Wandy/Rampage trilogy. There's some great fights in Pride, so I would recommend watching a couple from there.

Also watch Takanori Gomi vs. Nick Diaz when Diaz was high as FUCK while fighting :diaz

I agree watching Pride isn't going to give him a modern MMA expierence. Pride was great for what it was the best in MMA with a slight side show attraction and seedy underbelly but if he wants to get into MMA now then watching a few of the latest events and the next few cards would be the best way to go then backlogging fighters he becomes intrigued by wouldn't be a bad idea. Pride had a whole different astmosphere from the entrances and shouting lady, to the rules, the use of a ring instead of a cage,open weight tournaments, round times, and weight differences it would introduce him to something great but not what MMA is but what but was.

Likewise. Wonder if they will actually fight.

I suggest starting with watching FOX Sports 1 1 on August 17th. A great card and it's free.

Don't even bother listening to Dark Church's garbage opinions on PRIDE. Not worth it.

Dark Church has his points PRIDE is the WWE of MMA. Rigged finishes and payouts. Watch guys from Pride fight in the UFC, most of them can't hang.

It's fucking stupid to dismiss Pride like that. Yeah, SOME fights were rigged, but the ones that matter weren't. Also doesn't change the fact that there were some amazing fights in Pride that MMA fans absolutely have to watch.
