    Shogun was PRIDE. He's in the UFC but he's not considered a serious prospect for the title anymore. He's just there because he's a big name and draws; he's not a serious fighter.

    Anderson was kind of PRIDE. He's in the same boat as Shogun.

    Those are 2 of the 3 remaining.

    Overeem was PRIDE through and through. He's the only guy left that's a serious fighter. Tonight might be his last night as such.

    Anderson was never a pride fighter, he's like Alvarez just a guy who bounced around. I watched him more in cage rage.

    Pride fighters hasn't had success in the Octagon in years. It died when My favorite HW retired in Big Nog.

    It's strange that it's in December 2019. I wonder if that's like an omen that the PRIDE era will not carry over into the 2020s.

    This seems like a good spot for a forum announcement:

    GO WATCH PRIDE. watch their GP events and NYE Shockwave events, at a minimum. You will see high-level mma at its best. And you'll be a better mma fan.

    And watch Pride 33. You piece of shit.

    Anderson is a not a PRIDE fighter to me, like I said he's like Alvarez & Masvidal. Just guys who fought in all different Orgs.
