    Now before anyone freaks out on my Pride impression, think about it. Lot's of entertainers that are washed up in the US do great in Japan. I stayed away from forums cause they were either filled with haters or idiots or both. Until recently, hell it was hard to find someone who had even heard of mma. So my inital impression stuck and I never paid much attention to Pride.

    I'm having to play catch up now. Just bought the Pride 12-16 and Championship Chaos II for a little history. I know I want to get the DVD that has Rampage wailing on Chuck. I've heard so much about it on this forum, I must see it myself. I've only seen Rampage fight in Gladiator Challenge and KOTC. It'll be interesting to see how much he improved.

    Do you, or anyone else, have any suggestions for any other must buy Pride DVDs? You can send me a PM if you don't want to hijack this thread any more that I already have.



    Thanks
    They do have some UFC washouts, but that's mainly to appeal to the American audiance, so they have some names that they are familiar with. I'll PM you some PRIDE DVDs I recommend.

    I really glad to see Nick Diaz back in the hunt. War Diaz.
    Boone concentrates mainly on reporting the MMA News. He runs a couple of Pro Wrestling sites as well so I imagine he doesn't have much time to post monthly unofficial rankings.

    But I understand what you mean, it's nice to have updated MMA Rankings.

    Thank you. WTF is wrong with these MMA weekly people on. Wand is still the middle weight champion and still has beaten every MW/LHW who ever challenged him in pride.

    Boone when are you going to update your rankings?
    Um yeah these rankings suck! First of all, Melendez should be higher! Marquardt shouldn't even be on there! Overeem and Griffen shouldn't be on there! And I don't care if he is "the best in the world"... a guy who hasn't fought in almost a year shouldn't be #1, that being Fedor!

    IMO the only thing they have right is Chuck being the #1 LHW...oye vey!
