    wtf is the difference between Pride and UFC?

    Some guy in my class tonight was goin on about how Pride fighters are way more hardcore then UFC.

    I dunno the difference between to the two, both seem pretty ballsy.

    i was always under the influence both were the same, since both were just Venues for MMA fighters to fight at.


    UFC/pride are like WCW/WWF back in the day(if u followed wrestling even for a tiny bit) just different brands while both of the fighters could fight each other since it was MMA. only difference is that the checks are different?

    maverik is right. Pride is the WWF to UFC's WCW. Pride fighters get paid a lot more, and they can stop to teh face in a fight, but no forearms. UFC is just getting popular, and so the caliber of the fighters are not as good as Pride except for some exceptions (Cotoure, Lidell). Also, in UFC you can forearm, but no stomps. And you can use the barriers to your advantage

    Fighting for UFC or Pride does not make you tougher than the other. People assume that Pride fighters are better because most UFC guys use the cage to their advantage, its kinda like cheating, but isnt. For example, you put Randy Couture in a PRIDE ring, and he would be killed, because most of his game is utilizing the cage in every aspect. But all fighters in both devisions have the same or similar skill, none are tougher than the other just because of the company they fight for.

    UFC : straight elbow shots allowed, NO kicking or kneeing of the head while the opponent is on the ground.
    PRIDE: NO elbows allowed, No kicks or knees to the head or the face of an opponent who falls face down(on hands and knees - all 4's), otherwise ok

    In terms of promotion size, pride owns the ufc. Pride also pays a shitload more, and hence they really do have better talent....especially in the heavyweight divisions.


    No one is more of a badass for fighting in either, but the guys in Pride are defeinately getting more money.

    Oh, and another reason PRIDE > UFC is because UFC got rid of their LW devision, which is totaly fuckin stupid. If anyone saw Gomi vs. Jens, you would know the importance of having LW fights, they are badass.
