    Did any of you hear Pride's birthday acknowledged by any media anywhere? Sherdog Radio? UFC?

    I didn't, but maybe I missed something.

    To bad, I was only 5 years old when Pride ended. 7 years later, I decided to watch some of the Pride shows and man, Pride was way better than the UFC.
    Better ruleset, Epic entrances compared to UFC's bland production. Plus, tournaments are always fun in MMA

    Gimme today's fighters skill level, with Pride's fighters heart, Pride's personality, Pride's rules plus elbows, Pride's yellow card system, ring or a cage (I see merits to both, and you got a winner.

    "The Diet Butcher" Alexander Otsuka pulls off the super rare double armbar!

    [​IMG]

    Nick Diaz slides his leg into Gomi's throat and pulls down on the head for the rare Gogoplata choke

    [​IMG]


    Takase sets up the mounted triangle on Anderson Silva and then rolls over to his back to tighten it up.

    [​IMG]

    Ryo Chonan surprises Anderson Silva with a flying scissor takedown and immediately cranks a heel hook.

    [​IMG]

    Cro Cop attempts to escape mount but Nog transitions to belly down armbar. The roar from the crowd at this moment was probably the loudest ovation I have ever heard from an MMA crowd.

    [​IMG]

    The amount of damage Cro Cop delivered in that fight would have KO'ed the normal man probably 4 or 5 times over. I will never understand how Nog continued. That takedown he shot for in the 2nd round was the best takedown he ever shot in his life. He knew he needed that takedown more than anything.

    Nog temporarily derailed Mirko's quest to Fedor and the championship which was hard to accept for many fans at the time, however, it only highlighted the greatness of the second best heavyweight of all time, Nog. It showed how tough he was and that he was impossible to put away.

    After surviving the beatings from Sapp, Fedor and Cro Cop...Nog's legend as an indestructible zombie was at an all time high.

    True!

    And as far as I can tell, the fighters and the organization showed mutual respect for one another. Imagine that!

    Rampage has spoken very highly of Sakakibara even to this day.

    What I think this does highlight as well is that the modern "just stand up" style of grappling has only really caught on due to a lack of elite submission ability. A lot of the escapes we see in MMA today would IMHO be exploited far more if there were more than a handful of elite grapplers, most BJJ BB's these days are only really trained for defence/control.
