1.) Minowa/Leko - was it even shown? I started watching the fights 10 minutes in.
2.) Giant Silva/Choi Mu Bae - I'm glad they have brought along Choi with reasonable matchups instead of feeding him to the wolves, and I hope he gets a shot maybe against a Herring or a Yokoi soon. Let us hope we never have to see Giant Silva fight again.
3.) Anjo/Ryan - Who cares? Anjo had really no chance, and I look forward to someone decent stomping a mudhole in Ryan's stupid ass. Although maybe some Portugese primers for the Pride refs would help.
4.) Chonan Ryo / A. Silva - Ryo's striking surprised me, he at least gave as good as he got from Anderson. Silva used his limbs to stifle Chonan a bit, but never used them to much effect on the ground. That has to be the most incredible finish I've ever seen, however. For Chonan to pull out Volk Han-style move when he was winning the fight comfortably, is very impressive. Silva again shows a little vulnerability to grapplers.
5.) Takimoto/Sentoryu - I thank the editors of Pride of relieving us from watching this shitfest.
6.) Yoshida/Gardner - Gardner had the right game plan and executed it very well. His hands were good considering how long he's had to work on them. No shame in losing to Gardner for Yoshida - Yoshida was game but couldn't get Gardner down long enough to try any subs. Also, ANY talk of works for Yoshida should definitely end. Disrespectful to a very tough competitor. I look forward to seeing Gardner again, and I hope he can work on his hands, and maybe get his clinch striking a little farther along. Enormous potential.
