I find it funny how I am not a Pride nuthugger and I feel that the Hardcore UFC fans are trying to justify that Pride is a worse org at this point. As already stated Two of Prides fighters are Champs now. Also ther is the adjustment to the Cage and new rules which most of their opponents do not have to do. there is also the fact that they ARE fighting in the UFC with matchups that might not be best suited for them on purpose to make them look bad. And Lastly if Machida lost they could still bag on pride fighters because that is a no win situation and just silly to use it to back some hugging of an org. I have never been a fan of Org Hugging I like the fighters and that is IT.
