Interesting. I've always thought the opposite, though--that Pride, while it may look a little too "squeaky clean", looks closer to what a combat sport should be. The UFC's cage looks a tad too theatrical for me, and a bit reminiscent of professional wrestling.
Naturally, neither reflects on the fighters, who would be just as good if they were competing in a sumo ring.
