I was bored a couple weeks ago and noticed a Pride replay on PPV so I ordered it. Wow there are some tough dudes in that series. There was one guy that was just non-stop submissions, one after the other, but the wrestler he was fighting was so flexible he would weasel out of them. Then there was this big Bob Sapp ****er, like 6'6" 375lbs, all muscle. He looked like a cartoon character he was so built. And there was this other big 6'10 black dude that looked impressive. I forget the lighter weight fighters but all of them looked pretty skilled.
A couple things they did which I never have seen in the UFC is knees to the head, and also what I would call a "face stomp" where a guy standing would stomp a dudes face like you would crush an alluminum can.
Anyhow good series, comparible quality of fights to UFC, way better than that King of the Cage series.
