    I know this thread has been done before but I feel that it is important to remind you all that PRIDE was the greatest MMA promotion of all time. Bas and The fight professor were the best commentators too.

    Let’s state all of the facts.
    Fedor vs Cro Cop
    Shogun vs Rampage
    Shogun vs Arona
    Sakuraba vs Carlos Newton
    Wanderlei Silva vs Rampage 1+2
    Minotauro Nogueira vs Cro Cop
    Minotoro Nogueira vs Shogun
    Minotauro Nogueira vs Fedor
    Gomi vs Sakurai

    MMA back in the day had the storylines that made you care and the personalities that got you emotionally invested. You mix that with superior ability and the ultimate presentation and you have a spectacle unlike no other.

    Let’s all discuss the nostalgic days of MMA where people just fought each other and didn’t have to worry about what USADA has to say.

    99% of the forum isn’t QUALIFIED to discuss the golden era of MMA, matter of fact they couldn’t even tell you what the acronym for MMA stood for back then.

    They’ll probably just lash out and resort to bashing it or making outlandish statements.

    (That being said, Ninja vs Sperry is the most UNDERRATED MMA fight of all time)

    Are they gonna tell me how much a draw mcgregor is or maybe they’ll forget about just how many fights Khabib has pulled out of?

    I miss all the baby crawling back to reset in the middle. Also all of the glove issues that stopped the fights constantly. Fights that were called for Japanese fighters under Moon rules (aka bullshit). Fighters using the ropes to stomp away on downed fighters to get a win. Fighters falling outside of the ropes, because by God, ropes = better MMA.

    Stephen Quadros is a bad commentator... yeah, I said it.

    Lil Nog vs Shogun was a great fight though, and Wand kneeing Rampage into unconsciousness, leaning through the ropes will never be forgotten (although I was too young to watch/care about mma at the time), Pride was a lot of fun

    Dude, I just watched that fight on one of my PRIDE legacy collections the other day... was berried on the card but that was a true rivalry! BTT vs Chute Boxe was some real shit.

    I guess I'm in that 1%, but only because of my join date.


    But in all seriousness, I want to cry...

    You think that’s sad? Well, there’s a thread about PVZ farting that is at 13 pages right now... this thread won’t get that far
