You never had that LnP shite in PRIDE. The rules didn't allow it and the ring made it more difficult.
And head butt's didn't cause easy cuts. They were removed because the sport had to made more palatable in order to get sanctioned. You ask me elbows on the ground should be removed as per PRIDE. PRIDE never allowed them because they could cause a fight to end prematurely on cuts.
