I've got a couple of friends that have become big Rampage or Anderson Silva fans, but have never seen them in action during their PRIDE days. One guy says that Noguiera shouldn't be the champ because he looked terrible against Herring. It's kind of a travesty that these guys have never seen a Rampage/Arona, Wanderlei/Rampage or Noguiera/Fedor fight. Since I've got access to a lot of old PRIDE fights, I was thinking about throwing something together for everyone to watch on the 4th before UFC86.
So far, I'm thinking...
-Rampage/Arona (Critical Countdown 2004)
-Wanderlei/Rampage II (PRIDE 28)
-Fedor/Noguiera (Shockwave 2004)
-Dan Henderson/Akihiro Gono (Bushido 9)
-Wanderlei/Sakuraba III (Total Elimination 2003)
-Fedor/CroCop (Final Conflict 2005)
-Shogun/Rampage (Total Elimination 2005)
-Anderson Silva/Carlos Newton (PRIDE 25)
If I have the room, I'm debating on putting Frye/Takayama or Aleksander/James Thompson just because they're so damn entertaining.
Any other suggestions? I'm trying to keep it around 10 fights tops and it'd be nice if one or both of the fighters are current UFC guys.
Hopefully this is in the right area. I didn't put it in MMA Media since I'm not posting anything, although when I finish the disc, I can post an ISO to burn to DVD if anyone else wants it.
