Good spot. It’s Erikson throwing me off. I always recall (probably wrongly) him being gone by 2003 but he might’ve just been there to corner someone. Probably is from around the time of Fedor vs Fujita or the GP. So summer 2003 most likely.

Just Cyborg taking a selfie while having a cack in the middle of nowhere. Not my proudest wank.

The Big Cat was fighting in Pride until '05.

Aye, but he had a 3 year hiatus between 2002 and 2005. 

His return fight in February of 2005, in which he was lost to Werdum, was also his last with the promotion. Hence, it's understandable why Wand associated Ericson with Pride in the early 00s rather than the mid-00s. 4 out of his 5 fights with the promotion took place between 1999 and 2002. 

I personally associate him with the excellent Pride FC video game which was released in 2003. His character was surprisingly piss-easy to beat IIRC.

fair point Jim

Erickson for a short time during his initial Pride run was regarded by some as one ofcthe best Heavyweights in the World. He really is one of the forgotten heavies when talking MMA history.
