Remembering the Epic Pride MW GP

Re-watching this vid, I noticed 2 things:
1. Pride Wandy looks like the missing link.
2. You can see which fighters had more clout in the org according to seedings.
It is no secret that Pride treated Japenese fighters better, and treating American fighters less so.
Saku gets some Korean guy I never heard of, while Hendo gets Lil Nog, and Rampage gets an undefeated (in Pride) Shogun?

Great vid, from the maestro, Machinemen.

Blu Namer, please.

Rampage has talked about how the Pride officials didn't like Page too much, and felt they already had "their" American black fighter in Kevin Randleman.

I don't care what anyone says, Rampage was beating Wanderlie down with GNP, I know that ref was forced to stand them up.

TTT in hopes of getting an embedding.

Thanks, everyone!

^^ Oh yeah, Lister vs Arona as well.

It is as if the plan was to eliminate all the Americans in the opening round.

For later Phone Post

I remember wanting the Vitor Belfort/Alistair Overeem fight to be a stand up war but there was alot of ground and Overeem slapped on that slick guillotine choke. Then Alistair fights Igor Vovchanchyn in the next round and pulls off the same choke lol dammit

I was really surprised that Dinky-Reem subbed Vitor.
I thought for sure there was going to be an all Brazilian Final and semi-final.

That was such an awesome tourney Phone Post

no doubt things were crooked.

...but didn't seem to make much of a difference, no?

MW GP was great don't get me wrong, but the LW GP .....now that was epic.

Hmmm. Ineffective GNP IMO.... Prime Wandy vs Prime Page Wandy wins 10 out of 10 <img src="/images/phone/post_tag.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


disagree, he wasn't doing a Kawajiri vs Josh Thompson type of lay and pray, he had full control and was landing solid shots in mount...I may be a Rampage hugger, but I'm objective as well...
