    Lucky bastard! Seriously though, going to a UFC/Pride event would be baddass, I couldn't imagine being virtually ringside for a nasty KO!!

    yeah he was, I thought he was gonna pull it off till that armbar hit. Great match to watch though. That was one of my favorite Pride events overall.

    I think they said it was due to "exhaustion", but Royce did have a limp and needed his corner's assistance to walk back down the aisle.

    and I think that is chuck in his corner..whats with that
    Yeah that's Chuck. He was at the event to corner his fighter Gan McGee who was fighting on the same card against Semmy Schilt. They knew eachother from their UFC days obviously. I think it was Randleman or Coleman that asked Liddell to join them. I'm not positive though. Anyway, Chuck ended up with a great seat for the KO.

    Yeah that was at Shockwave 2004. Definitely an upset, and a poor decision IMO. I wanted Hunt to win, and he did, but I thought Wand controlled the fight for most of the 1st round, and he had many more takedowns. With those factors and the weight difference, Wand should have won. The judges went with Hunt because of the damage he caused and because he was aggressive.

    when Nog pulled off that armbar, i was amazed. throughout the entire fight i thought cc was gonna win, cuz it seemed one sided most of the time. i didn't doubt nog at all, but it seemed impossible for him to win at one point of the fight.

    And that is why he is the #2 ranked HW in the world and the #1 ranked grappler in the world (IMO and certainly most everyone elses aside from the die hard Gracie fans). He can take a huge amount of punishment and come back and pull off a sub for the win.
