What is your perspective between the two?

To me Pride has the bad motherf'ers and UFC has the $$$$$$$
of course rules are more freely in pride as well

pride > ufc, any day

Well Pride is owned by the UFC now! Not all Pride fighters were bad ass! Once the steroids were taken away they would get knocked out or gassed out! Wanderlei is the perfect example so small now going to 185! He was a big 225 in the OWGP!

Pride would bring in randon Judo guys or wrestlers with no MMA backgrounds at all to get pummeled! They would even bring in Japanese pro wrestlers to fight and KTFO! LOL I liked pride for the knees to downed opponents! Soccer kicks are bitch moves! fights on the card were crazy too 360lb + vs 185 soaking wet! LOL crazy stuff! Guy in Diaper beating the Drum always made me laugh! :thumb:

Overall, I think UFC has more quality fighters. I'm not saying that Pride did not have some bad ass dudes of their own but they didn't have as high a percentage rate of quality fighters. UFC > Pride

pride fights were much more entertaining, i love the pride fighters because they put on awesome fights, not to mention the best entrances ever, and of course FEDOR! PRIDE FTW!

Pride was terrible... 90 percent of the fighters were cans mostly japanese. No PED testing see mark coleman for proof. Boxing ring is made for boxing not mma.

it was ok.. but production value, meaning entrances and shit were way better than UFC.

UFC is the choice for me. Fedor is the only thing left in pride if you ask me. and alot of those pride fighters eather suck really hard or kick ass when they switch over to UFC. but eather way its all fun to watch pride is just more hard core. but i guess who ever has the cash (UFC) gets all the good fighters.

KINDA OFF TOPIC......
Does anyone have an opinion on Kimbo???... i love kimbo but some of these dudes look pretty hard core.. but i hope kimbo makes it in the UFC to fight Brock Lesnar.. just cuse it would be cool..

I think Kimbo has a great chance of winning the show, considering every one of those heavy weights looked out of shape and sloppy.

Kimbo would have fit in with most of Pride. Kimbo vs. Bob Sapp....LoL

pride is long gone. but the only thing i liked about pride is:

the japanese crowd is near silent during a fight and only cheers when something happens. this is cool because you can hear the corners and stuff.

I also liked the presentation. all that flashy light and and stuff, victory music, awards, medals, trophys, flowers, japanese girls, judge judge judge.... ready FIGHT!!

UFC is a little mundane in presentation, but atleast they give good fights.

another thing i liked about pride is they had grand prix tournament bushido crap, why cant UFC have that kind of event too??

Pride produced a lot of good, even great, fighters. I just think overall the UFC has a higher % of great fighters. From Pride you get Hendo, Rampage, Wanderlei and several others (not gonna sit here and list every great) that are bad ass and will end up being legends of MMA. Overall though UFC is the place to be and has been for a long time.

pride had better fighters and an overall better organization. When ufc when to japan to prove they had the better figthers they got canned by rampage. Chuck did get by 2 good fighters but was beat by a decent fighter at that time in pride (rampage). Not to mention pride fighters fought all the time. Anderson silva came from pride, Big nog came from pride etc..2 champs in ufc.

Some of the things that made pride exciting where soccer kicks, kneeing on the ground, and jumping into someone's guard. It really prevented grapplers/wrestlers stalling and just holding each other.

But I hated the ring for the constant restarts.

again like I said they had more fights in pride. How many fights does rampage have and how many does forrest griffen have. Forrest did not whoop rampage, he beat him in a split not unanimous. Shogun had 2 acl knee surgeries, lets see you recover like a super human after somthing like that. He lost over a year of training and figthing, and still managed to split griffens head in half. Griffen had trouble with a guy who wasnt even fully recovered and wayyyy out of shape. Look at the records from pride fighters and then the ones from ufc they dont even compare....Now Nogera vs Randy..that was a whooping...

wtf this post is full of retarded fail.

forrest beat rampage by unanimous decision.
forrest has fought 12 times in the UFC rampage fought 13 in pride. so yea so many more fights.
forrest did not struggle with him
his head was not split in half
records dont compare? hmmm records favor UFC fighters 9 times out of 10 maybe you should go do your homework. and UFC vs former pride fighters def favors UFC.

Rampage did nothing in that fight that would have even gotten a split decision. Look I'm even a Rampage fan, but I'm not gonna kiss his ass after losing and make excuses. It's the fighters responsibility to go in the ring at 100% if he's hurt, don't fight. Shogun got handled by Griffin. You can't have an excuse every time you lose. What kinda shit is that, when you lose, you lose. Unless there is some sort of cheating involved (steroids, illegal knee, or some crazy stuff like that.) Now I'm not kissing Griffins ass either, Silva made him look stupid in the ring.

YOUR right and I love you, but I meant over all MMA records.
Forrest did struggle with him I dont care what you say.
He had a huge gash in his face.
Why do records favor ufc 9 times out of 10 hmmmmm just cause you say...

I'm a big fan of Rampage - but he didn't win that fight.

I do miss PRIDE - mainly because it was entertaining the and crowd was respectful. Majority of UFC crowds are a bunch of drunken morons imo. They boo every chance they get.

I dont think he lost it either...it was a close fight but not enough to take his belt away. You could hear your heart beat in a pride crowd hahahahaha. I remember when ufc went to pride to fight and rampage told Dana " sorry man but pride is where its at we got the best fighters and everything". Then he kicked the horse crap out of chuck Liddell and sent ufc home hahahahah! The funny thing was rampage was a b+ fighter in pride while chuck was an A+ fighter in ufc. I guess that proves my point but oh well im Irwin and i touch.

It's not golf. You're not required to be quiet. All the fighters always talk about how they love how the crowd treats them. They love to hear crowd reaction. Some of you guys are more interested in watching the fighter walk to the ring/cage....not the fight. If Pride were that great, they would have bought UFC.
