As has been pointed out Anderson can hardly be labelled as a Pride Fighter. You also know that Hendo had fights in the UFC before he went to Pride right ? You want me to name UFC fighters in the top ten today but I can't name some of the ones already there... that makes sense you can debate my point you just can't use these guys to do it. Besides that what does when a fighter decides to retire have to do with it? I can certainly get over the fact that Ortiz, Hughes, Chuck, Randy etc.. aren't the fighters they use to be ?
How about you do the same?
My "awesome logic" as you put it merely stated Pride the orginization is dead. You still cling to the past like it was the end all and be all of MMA. So what Cro Crop lost to Schaub get over it. Mirko's loss to Schaub is on him he could have retired if he felt he wasn't competitive anymore instead he fought and loss.
The trying to claim fighters as being "Pride" fighters just shows you are living in the past.
