"4. Mauricio Da Silva vs. The Predator (MMA Rules)"

Who's Mauricio Da Silva?

BTW, thanks for the info, dragonhead.

cool. so is anyone doing a PbP of any sort tonite....like maybe even just posting the winners and the way they won it as the fights happen??!

"Who's Mauricio Da Silva? "

Mauricio Da Silva is a Brazilian Kyokushin Karate guy. He is Francisco Filho's training partner.

If you could take all the best fights from the three shows together into one show, then you'd be in business...

Otherwise, Pride sounds pretty lame altogether.

excellent post thanks

so if my math is correct, PRIDE starts at 4AM Eastern?

As you know, these 3 shows will be aired live on regular TV in Japan. So, they set their important matches in the prime time to get high TV rating. So, the last match doesn't mean main event this time.

By the way, I have 3 TVs in my room. So, I can watch them all at the same time :) I will watch INOKI on PPV, and others on regular(free) TV.

The Predator is a pro wrestler. His real name is Sylvester Terkay. IIRC, Terkay won the NCAA Division 1 title in 1993 in wrestling.

I've been asked to post the PBP results on MMAWEEKLY's forum. I may post there.

Who is Giant Silva? Is he the prowrestler ( http://www.puroresufan.com/roster/silva.php )?

ttt - thanks DragonHead!



The right tall guy in the picture who is choking Matt Ghaffari is "The Predator"

Thanks dragonhead!

lol @ pic

LMAO at the last pic...

Here's where it gets funny...

Tom Howard is the head instructor at Ultimate University, Universal Pro-Wrestling's school. Ultimate University is Rick Bassman's school. I guess Rick Bassman was/is a legit (I hear) Sambo guy who used to train MMA guys for pro-wrestlers MMA. When Bassman got really into UPW, he sold his school Extreme University, his Sambo school.

"The Predator" is one of their prized students.

Anyways, Evan "Joe Millionaire" Marriot trained at Ultimate University. So you can actually see Tow Howard interviewed a bunch of times in the Joe Millionaire 1 wrap up show as, "Tom - Evan's Friend"


Anyone else totally stoked to see these shows ? Man I wish MMA was as popular in the US.
