    It's obviously gonna be one of the old Pride FC cards.

    I would have to go with Final Conflict 2005.




    Still goosebumps every time I see it, so much GOATness.

    Cro Cop got humiliated when he went to the UFC. Fedor never went. Shogun lost vs Forest when he was supposed to beat everyone. Wand became a laughing stock.

    Basically all of the OT fighters were not that great. Still a great event though, and they were all perceived to be great back then.

    UFC 126 had the 2 goats, Jones and Andy.
    I know Jones only won the title a few months later, but still

    The #1 GOAT GSP and #3 GOAT Jose Aldo were the headliner and the co-headliner of his card also Machida vs Couture was in the main card too . It doesnt get any more greater than this.

    "Perceived" to be great? They were all great. Athletes don't last forever. But since you think only the UFC is the measuring stick...

    Shogun became UFC champion.
    Werdum became UFC champion.
    Anderson became UFC champion.
    Nog became UFC champion.
    Rampage became UFC champion.

    Hendo, Hunt, Overeem and other PRIDE vets had some great wins in the UFC and fought for UFC titles and in countless main events.

    Cro Cop had surgery right before he came to UFC and had several more injuries and surgeries during his UFC run. He had 120 fights by that point. Wanderlei had like 60 fights by that point(many bareknuckle) and had lost his last 2 fights in PRIDE by brutal KO before he came back to UFC.

    But the PRIDE fighters took several belts and had many great wins in the UFC even though they were all mostly past their primes.

    I consider Hendo a UFC champ. He beat Bisping and got robbed. Plus he was a tournament champion.

    Randy got stomped by Nog
    Arlovski got stomped by Fedor
    Sylvia got stomped by Nog and Fedor
    Hughes got stomped at the same time
    Chuck got stomped by Rampage
    Franklin got stomped by Anderson

    Maybe the Pride guys fell off at a similar rate to the UFC guys of the same era?

    that is utter BS from an obvious hater (or UFC Shill... which amounts to the same).

    Fedor didn't go because UFC HW was a joke, and he signed with SF who had a HW tourney and much better fighters. Further dirty tactics by Dana increased the divide. Then Fedor lost and UFC has no reason to pay what Fedor must demand.
    Shogun had double knees surgery. In a rematch, he KO'd Forrest.
    Wand was already in decline, after losses to Cro Cop & Hendo.

    Basically your take is biased and does not account for the fact that every single UFC Champion (from Pride era) was already out or on their way out. (Tim Sylvia, Chuck, Rich Franklin, Hughes and BJ) but somehow you demand Pride fighters to not get old, not get out of prime.
    That is a ridiculous and biased assessment.

    What about their UFC counterparts? Oh wait, they almost all stopped being relevant years before all the fighters you mentioned.

    Everyone gets old and wear and tear catches up to everyone, former Pride fighters too but they have shown much better longevity than their UFC counterparts(Syliva, Chuck, Franklin, Hughes ect.)
