    People give them too much credit, seriously. While taking away from UFC fighters.

    Pride doesn't have unbeatable fighters, last I checked UFC probably has them beat in every weight division, with the exception of maybe the HW, which is still questionable.

    I was thinking about it and, Fedor, although great, he CAN and WILL be beat someday. If he gets hit hard enough he will fall. So you put him in the ring against a world class striker like Big Tim, Arlovski.. .hell maybe even Chuck and they all have a good chance at beating him. Especially Big Tim and Chuck, they are world class strikers with sold take down defense. Chuck has quick follow up combinations when he connects with a solid punch, so that right there is enough to end the russians reign.

    Chuck has them all pretty much beat. Trust me, you don't see it, but Wanderlei is scared of Chuck, especially after seeing how he knocked Babalu out cold, he knows he can't beat him. If Silva can't beat Chuck, neither will Arona, Little Nog, or Shogun. None of them stand a good chance, they all have a good ground game, but too bad for them because they won't be able to take Chuck down and will get knocked out trying too, just like Babalu.

    Matt Hughes, GSP and BJ Penn all have the ability to beat Dan Henderson, and everybody in his division.

    And the lightweight division, well, we've all seen Gomi's remarkable ground game.. ..:hsugh: .. Putting him in the ring against Sherk is a fucking joke. Sherk will out muscle him and submit him.

    Instead of flaming, lets just ignore him. Maybe he'll stop making threads eventually.

    in my opinion? yes, a little bit.

    geneally, the fighters in pride are more skilled than the fighters in the ufc, but it's not always that way. :dunno:

    soooooooooooo i got my sprawl shorts that I ordered earlier this month, they're fuckin fantastic! anybody else get in on the deal? Btw, sprawl messed up and shipped to me through UPS, and i got smashed by Canada Customs and UPS's awesome Brokerage fee's.

    Sprawl then sent me a t-shirt and an extra pair of shorts to make up for it. What a fantastic company.

    Oh and I can't wait til KUET comes here and starts thugging out teh awesome

    does this change at all if we specify that matchups would be in a cage with UFC rules?
