I also went to Suncoast and saw a Pride FC GP 2000 dvd @ 50 bucks and there was only one. Is this collection worth the 50 bucks? I recently did a search on ebay and only find one @ 78 bucks, is it an ultra rare DVD?
And I also saw the Pride FC legacy collections, the thing is I don't know where to start, as I love UFC but I also love MMA and want to get more into it by opening my options to other organizations like Pride FC.
Yes the Legacy Collections are the cheaper ones becasue they are 1-5, 6-9,11 and a volume 3 which I do not own. I have the first 2 Legacy collections, Mark Kerr, Sak, Rickson and Igor at their best.
Pride GP 2000 is a very rare dvd, it is also one of the best events if not the BEST event in MMA history, it is very hard to think of a better event than that one.
Championship Choas II is phenomenal, I paid $18.99 for it at Best Buy a while back and it was well worth it. This si the first time we wittness how domint Fedor is. He fights Heath Herring and both Bas Rutten and Steven Quadros pick Herring to win the fight becasue Herring is on a tear and we really knew nothing about Fedor. It also has Big Nog vs Semmy Schilt (Big Nog is the best grappler in the world of MMA, it is hard to argue that), Wanderlei Silva vs Kanehara (displays Silva's dominance), Arona vs Ninja.
There are other great fights on that disk as well. Cold Furry 3 I can' think of who is on that card off of the top of my head but I would imagine it is a great card as well. Other than the legacy volumes, every Pride PPV is purchase worthy or at least all of the ones I have seen or own.
When it comes to MMA, Pride is unmatched and it is good to see new people making the transition into MMA and not remaining strictly UFC, there are so many phenomenal fighters in Pride, K-1 heros has some greats as well, Cage Rage, Deep, KOTC, etc but Pride hold the overwhelming talent pool over any other organization in MMA, it is sickening when you think about it.
