Gomi vs KID
i am trying to see how this is good news....
Shaolin could be bad news for Gomi, but him vs. Kid would be amazing.
Gomi would tear tokoro apart.
a few good matches for him in hero's...but eventually i'd like to see him in UFC
Gomi is huge for HERO's LW div. HERO's is like old school japanese MMA where hardly anybody cuts
except for JZ and shaolin...both those guys are huge for HERO's LW...both bigger than gomi i think....shaolin said in an interview he walks around at 190...these are the only guys that really matter except for kid
is kid still with Heros?
JZ is shorter but stockier, isn't he?
and i didn't know shaolin was that big. i assumed he walked around 170-175ish
good choice by Gomi, could be bad for his career to fight UFC guys
isn't HERO's LW cutoff 154lbs?
I am 99% sure that it is. Gomi can make it, but it wont be the same Gomi. He is perfect size at 160, i think any less and he is going to have a really hard time cutting or he is just going to have to lose some mass.
he's gotten bigger since he fought at that weight. i hope HEROs pulls in more talent
i knew his ass was to scared to go to the ufc. Dana wont coddle his ass like the people in pride did
Well, there goes Pride.
In 20 years, I'll be telling my kids about the golden years of Pride FC
i mean really what made pride was the better pool of fighters and the matches they set up. hopefully now the ufc will get better with the combined fighter pool. the ufc has been looking better
better fans, better rules, bigger shows, bigger production value, less gay gladiator intros, better judging system, i can think of hundreds of things that made Pride great
10/5 rounds, the production values, the marketing of fighters, yellow/red cards/purse deductions, restarting fights away from the ropes, etc.
UFC is doing great things though
Better Fans is why Price > UFC. Booing while they grapple is horrible. I guess Pride's yellow cards and scoring against passive fighters helps a ton. I hope UFC enforces that but it's doubtful because UFC would be less like Boxing so less like a "sport"
Can't forget the Grand Prix's...
We'll miss you Pride.
the yellow card system was stupid and easily abused
near the end of the Pride you can notice they weren't doing that shit as much anymore
unless they were giving cards to people that were obviously "supposed" to lose
id like to see purse deductions more in mma especially with people like shamrock
easily one of the greatest aspects of pride. the LWGP was gonna be awesome!!!
