i just randomly watched this, its kinda on topic if anyone is interested..
I would like to add that Brock took Cain down rather easily himself, but got WAY too excited and tried to transition from full guard to full mount lol.
Fedor has some awkward throws and if he found himself on the bottom has/had some of the best hips in MMA history.
As for Crocop, he faced wrestlers like Ron Waterman, Kevin Randleman, Mark Coleman, Josh Barnett, and Olympic Judoka Hidehiko Yoshida and made it look easy as well.
Kevin Randleman amazing wrestling chops however 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m) 205.5 lb (93 kg; 14 st 10 lb) CroCop and Randleman only fought twice and they split 1 and 1 First figth Randleman wok via KO second fight Loss "15–10 Mirko Filipovic Submission (guillotine choke) PRIDE Shockwave 2004 December 31, 2004 1 0:42" Now is memory serves correctly that was off a takedown that Randlemen made an error on and got caught
Mark Coleman that was a great fight but again another point I am making with Randlemen 6 ' 1 205 lbs,
Josh Barnett not sure if this is "Easy" they fought three times in there carear first shoulder injury in the first minute second 3 rounds descion war last submission punches 7 minutes in not sure that can be "Easy" ,
Olympic Judoka Hidehiko Yoshida 5-11 225 lbs leg kicks great fight but it wasnt easy either,
Cain 77 inch reach, 241 pounds, Six foot one, but the big thing NCAA Div 1 champ, BJJ Black Belt, studies Maui Thai as well as Kickboxing.. During the Golden age of Pride they had an amazing HW Roster however.. This might get a lot of hate here but I will say this right now, the Pride HW Division is why UFC is what it is today because we had kids in middle school watching MMA and wanting that one day but we dont have students of one art that get decent in another, we now have students of many arts and masters at them as well. You take Any current UFC Champion and send them back in time to Prides Heyday and I say the Current fighters win 9 out of every 10.
Gotta resolve the Gayness
It's times like this that I wish Zuffa resurrected Pride, or entered their fighters into a JMMA promotion just to see how well they would do, against both former Pride fighters (who are older now) and against other Zuffa fighters. That would answer a ton of questions IMO, but that will likely never happen. A man can dream though.
Gotta resolve the Gayness
That's probably true at this point but I'd give Fedor a solid chance only because of what I have seen in the past. However, Cain is a beast right now.You take Any current UFC Champion and send them back in time to Prides Heyday and I say the Current fighters win 9 out of every 10.
Due to the weight class difference with welter going from 161-183, could you possibly imagine a PRIME Dan Henderson fighting Johnny Hendricks? That would be absolutely amazing IMO.
You say shark I say hey man, Jaws was never my scene and I don't like Star Wars
