    2 of my friends have started to get into MMA. I've been bringing my Pride Legacy DVDs over to their house to watch.

    I wanted to get a list of the top 10 fights that everyone should see. Both for excitement and what it meant to the sport.

    I was going to download them and take them over tonight.

    I've got my list, I want to see if you guys have any I've missed.

    They both appreciate technique, but who doesn't love Frye/Takayama?

    We just watched it last night. They loved it.

    One of them is a big boxing fan, he said most boxing fans just don't enjoy a good brawl, but he loved it.

    After the fights you should ask them if they would like to be further educated on the fine arts and if they say yes, take them down, lay them out flat on their their tummy, and go for the "take off their pants and slip your cock up their ass without Vaseline" submission. That'll show them MMA > Boxing *

    Newton/Sakuraba is a great showcase of badass grappling.

    Again, any fight from PRIDE Bushido 9 is great.
