    Pride HW's in Japan Pro Wrestling now

    I guess since UFC was not an option, this is the only way they could make decent pay. Don Frye and others are probably doing this too. These photos were taken on 2007-06-29.

    Can someone please explain to me again why people are still watching fake fighting when you can now watch real fighting?

    Fake fighting has choreographs and nobody actually gets hurt. You know, Hollywoodish and pussified. I guess it's for the "MMA is human cockfighting, but playing violence is OK" - crowd.

    I've never cared for pro wrestling. Well, except that masked dude in WWE seems pretty acrobatic, which is always nice to watch.

    The fact that they're real fighters using, largely, real techniques suspends the disbelief a bit. Add to that the difference between Jap and Yankee pro wrestling and the difference in the culture, etc, and it's not as ridiculous as it seems.

    If the UFC isn't going to pick them up, that's pathetic, Randleman, Coleman, Barnett, and Fujita are STILL better than most of the guys in the UFC in their weightclasses.

    That last picture of Coleman is almost as awesome as him jumping on the ropes, then falling down after his Grand Prix win.
