Re: Henderson vs. Rampage
I tell you what, Nobuyuki Sakakibara must feel like complete shit at the moment.
He probably sold PRIDE in good faith thinking it will be kept alive in its then current state, the Ferttitas said so much bullshit at that conference about how they respected PRIDE and loved it and will keep it alive for the Japenese fans.......then gutted it of all talentand installing ***** unified rules.
The unfied rules system is very slowly starting to take away the entire reason why, vale tudo/ufc was created.
I mean christ! it doesn't have to be like early UFC's but no knees or kicks to the head on a grounded opponent?
What will they ban next?
Are they going to ban punching opponents on the ground? Elbows? kicks to the head?
Will it become essentially boxing+grappling and move futher and further away from what MMA is really all about!
