And this October it'll be 20 years since Pride's debut show. So let's talk about Pride. I'm going to start working through all the Pride events this weekend. I don't know how long that will take me. Probably ages. But I'll stick with it and post some shit in here as I work my way through them. It's been ages since I watched Pride outside of the odd highlight video here and there. I definitely haven't watched a whole show in years. So a lot of it will probably almost be like watching it for the first time. I'd love to see the UFC do something this year to mark what would've been Pride's 20th anniversary (a big documentary like the UFC one would be amazing) but I can't see it. Maybe they could induct a couple of Pride vets into the Hall Of Fame at least? Is Big Nog in now? Anyway, let's celebrate the awesomeness that was those ten beautiful years of Pride. The incredible fights, the freakshows, the PED crazed brawls, the Chute Boxe faction wars, Lenne Hardt, that glorious theme song, the fighter parades at the start of the events, Bas & Quadros' ridiculous show openings on the early shows, the Wandy reign of terror, the Frye vs Takayama madness, Sakuraba clowning the Gracie family, the Yakuza links and that Pride official who was found dead in the shower, the emergence of a young Shogun, Nog vs Sapp, Fedor's dominance. There's so much shit to talk about where Pride's concerned. Edit - only just seen in the Past Fights thread that a couple of you have started watching the UFC's from 1 onwards. So yeah, fuck it I'm copying you but with Pride it'll be interesting to compare the two actually as we work through the shows. If we actually stick with it of course.
