    Lets look at these 3 things from Pride 33.

    1. The winner of the 16 man Pride 185 tournament lost to a UFC reject in Trigg

    2. Some unknown fighter just knocked the fuck out of Prides #2-205 Fighter in under 30 seconds

    3. A guy who cant win a fight in the UFC as of late defeats Prides 160lb champion

    4. One of their most, if not most marketable fighter who was gonna take Liddell down and prove that Pride>UFC is now on a 2 fight losing streak, therefore taking away much hype from him ever fighting Liddell...Maybe Hendo can step in?


    I really like both entities, and would love to have them both stay seperate and compete against each other (would only make the sport better), and always thought Pride could make it because they have the better fighters, while UFC has the better market, and marketability..but fuck, I know it was a great show and all, but with all the rumored financial problems, and now past UFC fighters who the UFC no longer wants basically shitkicking Pride at their own event, are we close to the end of Pride? :wtc:

    I thought they said Lil Nog was the #2 guy in the division, since Shogun had moved up to HW? I thought Lil Nog was the next in line for a title shot at Wandy.

    wow you are a fucking idiot, do you not read?

    no where do I say that UFC>Pride. All Im stating is that it doesnt look good for Pride (marketability wise) when UFC rejects are knocking off their top stars...thats all.

    Learn to fucking read before you start crying

    He fought Coleman at HW when he had his arm broken. I thought the plan was for Ninja to move down to 183 and Shogun to goto HW because neither would ever get a shot at the 205 title while Wand was the champ.

    I think it is hard for Pride fighters to fight in the UFC because of the rule changes.....If you are used to being able to kick someone on the ground and then you are not able to in UFC that would change up a lot of your game plan.....But nonetheless I don't know.....

    shouldn't matter. a great fighter, a true champion, finds a way to get the job done.

    And what event did I miss where Eddie Sanchez won multiple titles? :rofl:

    UFC 56.3 The Royal Rumble

    eddie won the main event by powerbombing chuck through a table and onto sylvia, thereby winning both the HW and LHW titles simultaniously.

    I thought I read it somewhere back after Shogun won the MW tourney. Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know anymore.

    god you are a fucking tool...your reading comprehension is laughable. No where do I ever state that one association is better than the other or which one i like more. Im just stating facts as to what transpired at Pride 33. Guys the UFC cut took down some of the top Pride guys, and a guy that no one has ever heard of knocked out Prides #2-205 guy...I love Pride, I love UFC, The last thing I want is a UFC takeover of Pride when I think about it. Im just sayin the pride name took a hit this past weekend with its show....

    there, do you understand now you fucking retard?

    He was supposedly the next in line for the title shot. So that should make him the #2 guy in the organization since Arona has already lost to Wand and Shogun never would've had a shot.
