    I have seen numerous comments about how good some of the Pride events were. Well here i pose the question to you experienced MMA fans, was there a Pride event that didn't excite you, or wasn't very fulfilling in it's entirety. Please post your responses here and name the event and why you think it wasn't very good.

    Dream always seemed like they had good cards though

    "Yes, there were PRIDE events that sucked"
    "Like what?"
    "Watch them"

    You should leave sherdog right now, lol. You actually are making me hope that Conor wins, so you can fuck off with your idiot logic.

    Early on there were a few bad ones. From 03-07 there never was tho. That run is the GOAT run of any MMA promotion as far as consistently great cards. An avg card was like an 8/10 in that span. 2nd would be WECs prime, then UFC best run in 3rd but they werent as consistent as PRIDE and WEC at their best.


    He prolly hasnt seen a PRIDE event lol

    He's actually a total idiot.
    He makes a statement, and then tells other people to find proof of HIS OWN STATEMENT.

    "Unicorns exist"
    "No they don't"
    "Yes they do, go out in the wilds and you will find some"

    most of the early ones are just awful outside of sakuraba fights, the first few bushidos weren't very good as well

    Fake pride fans are the worst. You aren't cooler or smarter because you liked a dead org.

    Ufc>pride. Suck on it and enjoy the taste.

    I feel bad for people that aren't capable of enjoying good fights regardless of the organization it happened in.

    I recently watched Pride 24-28 and I think Pride 27 was pretty meh. I mean, it had some great fighters, but they were all in mismatches against a bunch of really boring heavyweights, like Ron Waterman, Gan Mcgee, Old Mark Kerr, Dan Bobish, and Cory Peterson.

    Edit: I forgot to mention the Dos Caras Jr. fight, which was one of the worst fights ever.

    Exactly. It is why the pride fanboys are so annoying.
