    well Im watching it right now and other then the actual fights the "event" sucks big time. the anouncer is a chick that is just horrible she rolls her R's which is stupid, and the ring announcer speaks like out of a Japan kung fo movie.

    the fighter walk in is like a WWF wrestling event. I wont pay for a pay per view Pride show again for sure. the fights are the same as the UFC but thats it. but no elbows while on the ground!!!, lame!!!

    I think its a joke that Butterbean is in this show too. yea he won but still, he fought a huge guy but you cal tell he has lousy skills.

    Pride is to the UFC like the Raiders are to the Broncos. They both do the same thing, but one is vastly under-qualified.

    That said, Pride has churned out some excellent fighters, look at Anderson Silva...
