    Those hammerfists that Elvis gave Saku must have had Saku pissing blood for years.

    Devastating.

    It was a very good event but there were a few PRIDE cards that were even better.

    When you have an intro like that you kind of need to do something special don't you?

    I would say Final Conflict 2003/2005 and Bushido 9 are on a similar level.

    If we're talking great Pride cards, Dynamite! is tremendous.

    25 is one of the great ones but even that year Final Conflict is one of the greatest cards of all time. It's jsut hit after hit after hit.

    Final Conflict 2005 has more legendary fights but not as much action so it depends on what you're looking for

    It might also be recency bias and watching it as it happened, but the last Rizin card, NYE 2017 Day 2, is, near unquestionably, one of the greatest cards of all time. 12 fights, not a single one of them is even AVERAGE. Horiguchi/Kape was dramatic, Otsuka/Ishiwatari was a great back and forth fight until Ishiwatari started flurrying like a madman, the two kickboxing fights were stellar, RENA's KO and Asakura's submission were great, Yusuke Yachi vs Takanori Gomi is one of the most fun starts to a fight ever, Cro Cop killed a man, a murder in kickboxing, RENA/Asakura's dramatics and then Horiguchi scorching Ishiwatari in the finals. No card has ever reached the heights that Rizin card did. UFC 199 is pretty close but I don't think it touches rizin's outing.

    EFN 50 is one of the biggest emotional journies i've ever been on. The card lasted 3 days, had 102 fights, was commentated by one man with the most broken english ever, there were spider robots and men with boogeyman fingers, it was truly SPARKLING.

    It was truly sparkling indeed, and almost tremendous.

    Bushido 9 was the GOAT.
