What's wrong with a pricey opening ceremony? Just because it culturally differs from you doesn't mean it's shit.

Do you have any idea how the "UFC highschool smackdown" culture comes off to the rest of the world? Just because you are used to it doesn't make it good.

Is this superb production? Sure it's TUF but still a UFC spawn to make the same argument as you guys are making. You gonna get knocked out bro.

I enjoy and I'm fascinated by Japanese culture so I enjoy the introductions.

PRIDE wasn't an MMA event, it was a celebration of japanese culture every single time they put a show on. You'd see Japanese hero's take on scary gaijin because the japanese love fights like that, they're freakshow fights but they're entertaining and they embody the japanese culture.

I can understand people who don't like it but to put down people who do is ignorant and douchebaggy

Mighty Mouse vs. Giant Silva ftw.

I'd buy that ppv in a heart beat.

i want mighty mouse and john dodson together vs cain valasquez. together they weigh as much as a heavy, and i think with a full camp, it is a easy fight for the flyweights.

Short answer imo would be MMA might be back in the dark ages in that PRIDE would have still eventually gone out of business as their home base in Japan was going to fall through anyway with the TV networks pulling out.
