    [for the 185lb class] :squint:

    eliteXC
    partnered with spirit, strikeforce, k1, spirit, cage rage, and icon

    185ers
    Lawler
    Ninja Rua
    Villasenor
    denis Kang
    manhoef
    shamrock
    renzo


    ufc:
    ace
    anderson
    okami
    kampmann (injured)
    mcfedries (recovering from serious staph infection)
    lister
    marquardt (bores people)

    im sure grove, j-mac and cote could hang with the outsiders but they just dont bring the excitement as much.
     
  2. your claims are questionable at best.

    its mostly about matchups and i like seeing kang fight.
    and the matchups the can make are crazy
    lawler - renzo or shamrock
    kang - manhoef, lawler, renzo, or shamrock :run:

    the only interesting matchups in the octagon are spider silva rematches.
    i like watching lister, but he's all ground and has been gassing lately.
    kampmann is a badass, but he's knee is all sorts of busted right now.
     
  4. meanwhile, where the hell are Gono and Misaki


    fucking Zuffa bungled the whole pride thing, as far as the sport aspect goes.

    Im struggling to see, now, why in the hell they even wasted their money. Apparently all they wanted was a few of PFCs fighters and the rights to the footage. The death of Pride was imminent when Zuffa purchased it. I guess they just didnt want anyone else to resusitate the company aka fuck everyone out of a good orginazations possible future be it with a new name or whatever.

    ^^ different orgs having their contract fighters fight people from different orgs.

    possible unified belts.
