    After posting in another thread about Wandy being the MW/LHW goat behind Anderson, it triggered a match up that never happened but would have truly been a war. My vote for best PRIDE fight to never happen is none other than Wanderlei Silva vs Igor Vovchanchyn. Would have been an absolute war with someone walking away with their head decapitated.

    Who would have won this match in your opinion??

    Shogun/Wanderlei would have been nice. I don't care if they trained together.

    I will never forgive Josh for burning down Affliction and losing one of the last great fights of a HW generation.

    Why are you laughing your ass off at 2 former UFC champs, one of whom was the first Pride tourney champ, a 6ft10 kickboxer who would become the greatest K-1 HW champ, the Pride version of Roy Nelson, and a crazy horse from Texas?

    True, but wasn't in Pride, so not pertinent to the thread.

    MikeH got it on the first reply.

    We missed BJ Penn in the
    2006 lw grandprix. Him vs
    Hayato sakurai is the fight we
    were all robbed of. But him vs
    edwards, or hellboy would've
    been the shit, too

    Classic striker vs grappler match.

    Nog had decent enough boxing and a decent enough chin to exchange for a bit. I would have loved to see Wandy showcase his "Black belt" on the ground in this one lol
