I dont consider Anderson Silva a Pride fighter because he never left a lasting impression in the organization, outside of being on the receiving end of Chonnan's flying scizzor heel hook. He has fought and dominated more in the UFC.
That's not the logic I'm using at all.
Anderson fought 5 times, losing twice. He fought more in Brazil before Pride and more outside of Pride after.
