    Regardless he's in superior condition, I'm sure. Necessity tends to do that.

    This displays great ignorance. Pride in particular has always been about spectacle and is often more interested in freak shows than solid fights.
    You're going to rant about this minor issue when in Japan we've seen Genki fight Butterbean; Giant Silva ever fight; washed up sumo wrestlers and two individuals (zulu jr and sapp) whose claims to fame were size?

    The UFC specifically moved away from Pro Wrestling style entrances and crap right after Chuck came out to Vanilla Ice and promptly got beat down by Randy at UFC 43 (43, right?).

    No more ramps, no pyrotechnics, no guy from the "Tapout Crew" on the big screen rambling on about how Chuck was awesome, etc.

    Pride is ALL about the show. Which is why they have such a huge following and why you see characters like Genki and ****. Yeah some of them have actual skill, but it's about entertainment to Pride. It just so happens that they also have the best talent.

    Prides run by the yaks and UFC is owned by mobsters. So, whats the big deal? Of course, if the rumors are true about Zuffa buying Pride, then instead of being run by Japanese gangsters its being run by American gangsters.
