    It's going to be sad when they're gone. Are there any other PRIDE fighters still hanging in 2018?

    We've got Vitor Belfort but he's really on his way out. He's only still in the UFC because of his name whereas Werdum and Mark Hunt are still good enough to justify their roster spots.

    Can one of them make it to the next decade in 2020 without being cut?

    Werdum's Glory days were in the UFC. Hunt was at his best as an MMA fighter in the UFC too.

    Even Overeem did better in his post Pride days. Werdum and Hunt were both relatively young in MMA when they were in Pride though, and Overeem found the sauce

    Lol @ Robbie, Melendez and Diaz. 1 or 2 fights in the middle of their career does not make them “Pride” fighters.

    The fact that some Pride fighters are still ranked in 2018 is very telling.

    Reem is younger than both and could realistically make it to 2020, depends though as I don't see the UFC matching that huge contract he has right now and he may want to go elsewhere for some big paydays
