    All Pride Events...

    I though that this is a link that should be posted again! If anyone hasnt got it saved to your favorites Id recomend doing so. Pride was the biggest and best MMA show ever. It made UFC look dull in comparision. Not Only was Pride in a bigger arena, with a Bigger (and argueabally more knowlegable) crowd with flashy intros Fireworks etc.. It was just a better show.

    The fights were more action packed with more enphasis on striking as Pride was in a ring. This ment no hugging against a cage and no stalling the action (as stalling the action or avoiding a fight got you a yellow card and you lost 10% of your pay)

    Also there was often tournaments were fighters would compete a few times a night, these events were far bigger than anything UFC has put on IMO. Seeing Liddell Beat Overeem, Only to loose to Rampage who went on to Loose to Wanderlei in the same night was something else.

    Lastly Pride had openweight tournaments every so often, This was great as it pitted all sorts of fighers agaisnt each other we would ordinarily not see. A lot of people arent keen on the Idea as bigger fighers have an advantage but under Pride rules in a close 50/50 fight the Smaller man would get the nod, Also the smaller man could pick the rules as to wether kicks and knees to a downed opponent were allowed...

    I really miss Pride, Dream and Sengoku havnt been able to capture the magic of Pride. To me it was the pinicle of MMA and something that UFC have not been able to recreate.

    These Pride events are propper MMA history, You get to see Fedor become the worlds greatest figther, You get to see Wanderlei's 5year dominance as Champ and true MMA legends like the gracie hunter and Minowaman!!!

    If your new to pride feel free to ask me or any of the other guys affectionatly dubbed "Pride fanboys" for advise on which one to watch but the full lineup of the events are posted below the video links...

    Again Big thanks to Chesthair for posting it.. it is truely the best website ive ever seen!!
