Dunno if this was shown on ppv on your side, but a few extra notes on the Pride show:
The President of FILA (The worlds governing body for wrestling) and the President of JOC (Japan Olympic Comittee) attended the show and made announcements in the ring. They both said that they are impressed with the current and former medalists in Pride, and in the future hope to be sending more top level athletes! And this is from the top!!!
Ryan Gracie in his usual self lost his temper, hitting the refs hand. After the fight he took the mic and asked to fight Yoshi or Saku next. Nakamura walked into the ring and said Ryan should fight him next. Ryan responded by saying Nakamura can wait in line. Nakamura said Ryan should fight him first before taking on Yoshi or Saku. Ryan threw down the mic and went for Nakamura. Both had to be restrained.
Mirko has asked to fight the winner of Fedor/Mino, which is Fedor. Hopefully a Fedor/Mirko fight coming up. In the pre fight interviews Mirko said the Randleman loss was a lucky punch that wont happen again, and also said Randleman talks too much lol (He said the same about Barnett before their fight). Nice to see Mirko SMILING more often.
Hunt has asked to fight Mirko after his win over Silva
So in the future we have more Olympic calibre athletes making the jump to MMA, and the triangle match ups of Fedor/Mirko/Hunt.
2005 is gonna be a good year!
