Bushido originally was fighters of all different weight classes. It was for some of the up and coming fighters as well as fighters that weren't featured as much on regular Pride event. It was meant to be quicker and more action as the others have mentioned. Bushido events used to have themes such as Team Gracie vs Team Japan and Japan vs the World. Around Bushido 7 they switched it to showcase the smaller fighters, making it LW and WW(MW) only, except for the occasional freak show match(Minowa/Butterbean,Minowa/Giant Silva).
Bushido is mainly just the answer to many critics of so-called boring fights. The idea behind the rule changes is really just faster paced fights.
In BUSHIDO fights are two rounds (instead of three). The first round is ten (10) minutes, and the second round is five (5) minutes. There are no extra rounds. If the fight goes the distance then judges decide on a winner.
For BUSHIDO "Challenge Matches," fights are two (2) rounds. The first and second rounds are five (5) minutes each. If the fight goes to the full time limit no decision will be rendered. The fight will be ruled a draw.
In BUSHIDO, red cards are used in the same way that yellow cards are used in PRIDE FC. In BUSHIDO, if fighters commit the following actions, they shall be given a red card by officials: Stalling or failure to initiate any offensive attack, making no attempt to finalize the match or damage the opponent, and holding the opponent's body with the arms and legs to produce a stalemate. A red card results in a 10% deduction/fine of the fighter's fight purse. A major difference in the penalty card system between PRIDE FC and BUSHIDO is that in PRIDE FC a total of three yellow cards results in a disqualification, while in BUSHIDO red cards can be given out in an unlimited number without disqualification
Im pretty sure Bushido is meant to showcase up and coming fighters and the lighter weight classes.
