Pretty good card from top to bottom. I don't know much about Baron except that he won the 2 Hot 2 Handle:Road To Japan Tourney to get into Pride. He is 10-1 overall and is the Shooto Europe Middleweight Champion.
IM not gonna lie i have never ordered a pride event on payperveiw, but my question is does pride show all the fights? i know ufc only shows 4-5 so what about pride ?
To answer your last question, yes Pride usually shows all of their matches on their PPVs. There have been a couple of times where they leave out a match or 2. At last year's Shockwave they left out about 4 or 5 matches which caused a big internet uproar amongst the angry fans. Since then they haven't made that mistake again.
No Tyson Griffin?????
since its on fsn and edited is anybody here going to ask pride to show the rest of the event on fsn on a later date?
ufc and pride the same night-
Jason Black i haven`t seen fight and Sakurai has impressed me after looking like a weak fighter against hughes.
i guess we`ll see hendo&gp fighters and then if theres time gomi-
butterblimp can hit but i don`t want to see him unless its on a card filmed at a local airport with richard simmons headlining. the card is A plus- if i had 34.99 i would buy the full card.
thanks for the editing info Ninja
