Of course tonight marks the debut of the "Best of PRIDE" show that will begin airing on Spike tv tonight at 10pm. I know there are a lot of PRIDE fans out there, so I thought it would be cool to do an open thread to discuss the fights they show tonight. We can all re-live the glory and the spectacle tonight together and talk about how much MMA has changed since then. We get to witness the brutality of Silva/Jackson, the shrinkage of Alistair Overeem before he started eating horse meat, and just how dominant Takanori Gomi used to be. If you missed the preview for this show, you can view it here. Here is tonight's line up:
Wanderlei Silva vs. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson"
Chuck Liddell vs. Alistair Overeem
Takanori Gomi vs. Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett
Anderson Silva vs. Carlos Newton
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Kevin Randleman
See yall at 10pm!
