    I miss the days of Pride. The "parade" of fighters at the beginning of events was something that I always liked and miss with the UFC. As much as I hated her then I miss the lady that announced the matchups. She was so over the top, but that is the Japanese style.

    The Golden Years of MMA. Just to name a few good rivalries. Wanderlei v Rampage , Fedor v Big Nog, Gomi v Chute Boxe. And the OG " Let me Bang" Frye v The Hotness.

    Stone cold killers… this was before the only thing “Hollywood,” about Wanderlie was a KO loss to the man, himself, the original “Hollywood," Dan Henderson.

    I miss Pride. Had high hopes for Dream and WVR Sengoku but they died too. We may never see anything as good ever again.

    Gomi vs Chute boxe in Bushido… oh, so good…

    What about this rivalry?

    We were young and got to stay up late to watch the PPV in the AM.

    This was Pride’s foray into the West. They had a press conference here in LA, where Frye through a glass of water into Shamrocks face. I ordered a subscription to Full Contact Fighter the day after… We knew, we were hooked.

    Fact. Randy would have done it, for sure. He had a huge falling out with the UFC partly due to wanting that fight so badly.

    This would have been good too: IMG_2256.JPG

    Fedor before he sucked.

    Russian Top Team Fedor. A very short prime before leaving for shitty Red Devil can club.

    Yeah, what did Fedor want, a million and co-promotion?

    Unheard of back then… Dawg, speaking about the Japanese Mafia, what about the Russian Mob and all those crazy MMA events in Russia. IFC had to smuggle tape copies out of Russia and into the US…
