I think he'd get hammered in PRIDE, elbows or no elbows, he'd get tooled by a great deal of their fighters. Chonan and everyone above Chonan would own him and there are about 8-9 others off the top of my head that are better than Chonan in PRIDE.
If you are ever making a move from UFC to PRIDE, it will not be because of a loosing streak, exactly the opposite.
