Who is with me here? The judges, refs, and fans take a lot away from its potential IMO.
nah man, its all about elite xc.
Wait..how did I get here in 2006
I am not good with the computer
ya, pride puts on the best shows man
I'm watching old events and it's pretty compared to UFC. I've just been used to it since it's been a while.
AND HERE WE GO!!!!!111ONEONE
For fucks sake..
Pride WAS amazing. Great production. ....However, you knmowhwtafuckthisi dont care enough to explain the wayshitworksniggerfaggot
shogun wouldve won for sure.
thanks we already know that. but theres only one exception to this...steroids.
steroids and head stomps are always fun
I had to triple check the date the thread was made.
Pride was so awesome! That's why they were so successful and able to buy out the UFC..............oh wait.
and soccer kicks!
PRIDE had it's fair share of questionable judging also. Granted, the fans, the rules, and the number of BIG fights per card were WAY better than what we see in the UFC.
I think they should combine the pride and unified rules.
Allow kicks to the head of a guy on the ground and punches behind the ear as long as they're not on the base of the skull like in pride, and allow elbows to the head like in ufc.
Oh yeah, and ban foot stomps.
it would be a tough sell to athletic commisions here in the US.
I couldn't agree more. I miss those head stomps too
why ban foot stomps? Because you personally think they're gay and aren't a means to end the fight? What about leg kicks then, or shoulder strikes from inside someone's guard? Hell even elbows, none of those will knock you out.
Akiyama won 30-27
AND HERE WE GO!!!
Because they're cheap and require no skill. In a real fight I'll be a foot stomping fool. They're definitely a means to end a fight.
But in a competitive fight they're bullshit. Basically the same reasons you would outlaw groin shots. If you want to allow both, fine. If you want to ban both, fine. But allowing one and banning the other doesn't make sense.
And yes, in my personal opinion, they're gay as fuck for competition.
Those are all skillful strikes. Are you saying any strike that can be done should be allowed? Cool. Rabbit punches, strikes to the spine, headbutts, groin shots, etc are all cool, then. Right?
who the fuck are you?
