    Are there any fighters you would of liked to seen contend while PRIDE was still a major promotion that never did? Given timelines and eras two always come to mind immediately for me.

    Randy Couture.
    Rich Franklin.

    What about PRIDE fighters that were never in the UFC? Fedor Emelianenko? Ricardo Arona? Ninja Rua?

    Jones fan, but I'd think pride wand would rush right through Jones's reach and KO him or die trying.

    A lot of these fighters with less than 4 losses today would have many more in Pride days.

    Couture never fought in Pride but he fought in Rings which kind of was Pride before there was Pride in Japan.

    Igor, Arona and Fedor in the UFC would have been great.

    BJ and Hughes in Pride would have been great.
