    He was referring to his match with Smirnovas at the last K-1 HERO's event. Saku took a pretty good beating before subbing Smirnovas.

    Saku got beat much worse by Arona in PRIDE though. Those knees he took to the head were brutal.

    no. all the fighters who you mentioned coming back didnt do too hot in Pride either.

    after dominating the UFC's LW division, Jens got KTFOd by Gomi and beaten soundly by sakurai, the number #1 and #2 LWs in the world.

    matt lindland is ranked the #2 MW in the world. he outwrestled Rampage because of his skill on the ground. Lindland has also vastly improved recently, getting better standup and really going to finish fights.

    Yves didnt look like shit when he almost KTFOd Stevenson several times and then got cut

    Josh Thomson lost to... clayton? after winning in Pride

    fighters lose. thats what happens. because it happened for a few when they left pride, normally after several losses, it makes them weaker?

    Is pride making fighers weak

    look at rampage he came to the US and barely beat a 185 lber
    Josh thompson has a couple of loses in Srike Force since leaving pride
    Yves has looked like sh!t in the UFC since coming back from pride
    Jens got ktfo in like 30 sec.

    Maybe its since pride wants fighters to entertain more than win or maybe its just tougher competition in the states. What ever it is fighters having success in pride are having a rough go of it after leaving, hell even Saku got beat nearly to death in K-1.
