    UFC of course.

    -Fixed fights
    -Freakshow fights
    -Undeserved title shots
    -Dana's locker room bonuses
    -Shady sponsor deals
    -Paid up journalists
    -Fertitta crime family
    -Covered up failed drug tests
    -USADA

    I'm sure Dana does as much Illegal shit as the yakuza did in pride. He just doesn't carry around Samurai swords

    You are going to get all the hate from the nostalgic Pride lovers, of course you are right, but, the shit storm is coming to you, wait for the allegations about USADA, Conor getting privileges, fake belts, blah blah blah, all that is nothing compared with Pride management but they are going to keep with the same old story

    UFC had at least one fixed fight, not speculation but fact.
    I love Pride and liked it better but you'd have to be clueless or just dishonest to equate the UFC to WWE and not Pride. Do you know anything about Pride, its history? Did you even watch it? It was clearly more like WWE in every way. Whether it's fighter promos, entrances, the numerous pro wrestlers to compete there, worked matches, etc.

    As shady as the UFC is its obviously Pride and its not even a little bit close. Hipsters will try say it's the UFC though

    hmmm...nah...

    Technically, it´s all speculation.

    Only one official case, historically: [UFC] Tae Hyun Bang > sentence: 10 months

    I can't believe you brought up PEDs in an attempt to bash PRIDE.

    PRIDE was the definition of fair when it came to drug testing. They did no testing, therefore everyone knew they could be fighting a roided person. The UFC is significantly worse considering they have given exemptions for using steroids with Jones and Lesnar, yet proclaim themselves as a clean sport. Along with inconsistent suspensions. There are guys who have tested positive 2+ times but still fighting.

    they don't give "exemptions for using steroids"....

    this is all nonsense.

    it's amazing - the ufc have a world respected anti-doping agency administer their program, they have wada accredited labs following wada protocol and they have a globally respected arbitration process / firm and yet that's shadier than pride.

    so you think jones is free to dope, as long as he only pulses traces of long term metabolites.......while being tested more than anyone.

    Both the same. Only difference is one allowed shady things and was open, the other tries to cover it up and hide it.
