    UFC Vs Pride

    So anyone have a favorite, if pride was still around which one would you watch more.

    I don't know much about the fight game beside watching it on TV and at cage events, I'm an Attorney by nature but these cage fights are sweet. Pride was bad ass and the rounds lasted 10 minutes damn. But UFC and WEC have been showing some really good fights also. I would watch them all of course just thought I ask, what about you guys.

    Pride because no knees or kicks to a downed opponent make UFC a strategical mess.

    I could live without the kicks, but the knee's I wouldn't mind seeing. I see too many fighters 'playing the game' in that respect (but he wouldn't any of us if competing under those rules?).

    Personally, I can do without the soccer kicks and stomps, but I do miss the knees to grounded opponents.

    I miss the knees and the different judging criteria in Pride (specifically judging the fight as a whole rather than individual rounds). And of course El Guapo as commentator.
    I don't miss the gimmmick-fights, the partisan judging/reffing, soccer kicks, that odd 10-min 1st round or using a ring rather than a cage.

    On the whole I think the UFC is a slicker, better operation, has better fights, enough so that I am willing to forgive them the lack of knees to a grounded opponent.

    Its about even.

    Generally i prefer Pride's ruleset. But i think the Cage (or 'Octagon') is far better suited for MMA.

    Also i prefer the whole Pride production, Japanese MMA events do tend to be a little less catered towards the douche.

    But the UFC has a wider pool of talent than Pride ever did and although still not perfect they also treat their fighters far better than Pride.

    I used to love Pride, knees on the ground and foot stamps etc kept things interesting and a bit more 'realistic' (if that's the right word to use). I was living over there when Pride was in full swing back in the late 90's and early 2000's - one of my big regrets was that I never made it to see any of the fights. Even more of a pisser is that it went under which was a real surprise because it was absolutely huge when I was over there.

    Pride fighting was definitely entertaining, but the Cage fights gives it the true effect for MMA

    PRIDE FC had some retarded rules re: this also. For example, compare Igor V's sub to strikes loss to Coleman, to his NC with Kerr. Exact same technique and target, but with the opponent rotated 180 degrees on his axis. I suspect the potential for damage is identical.

    And FTR, anything with more rules than NHB is for pussies.
