Have Pride 33 one right now. As everyone knows, it's a fantastic card. One of the best Pride ever held.

Sakurai just defeated a pre-UFC Mac Danzig with relative ease. The disparity in experience and skill was very evident from the opening bell. Danzig essentially had no success with any of his offense, and you could tell it was just a matter of time until Mach finished. Mach sealed the deal with a huge right hand in the second.

It doesn't really seem that Danzig has improved all that much since this fight, to be honest.

Kharitonov/Russow coming up next. Probably not going recap every fight. I may tomorrow. I don't know.

SAkuraba vs Ebenezer Fontes Braga


Ebenezer, the tough guy from the old days in the IVC and similar Vale-Tudo events against the japanese legend Saku.

Only some kicks by both parts and clinhces in the first part of the fight....Ebenezer tried to use his Muay Thai clinch but didnīt work...
Great sprawl by Ebenezer and later he landed a good right hand....
So far is good to see Ebenezer dealing well with an ATG like Saku...he looks well and focused here.
BUT Saku got a single leg and they went to the ground.....but Ebenezer was very smart to get up when he had the time to do it.
Clinchs again....Ebenezer threw a kick and Saku grabbed his leg and they went to the ground. I like what Ebenezer is showing here in terms of defensive BJJ (so far)....
Half guard by Saku now, work some time a tried to go to the back but Ebenezer got a little of time there and got up, very smart again.....
Weird move by Saku and they are in the ground with Saku in the side mount......hey again Iīll say, nice defensive moves by Ebenezer here.....Saku is having a hard time to get good positions....
BUT Saku got a nicely done armbar after much work....
Good win, showing great skills against a good opponent !

It's not overly memorable. Russow's gameplan was obviously to use his wrestling to get the fight to the mat, and he was pretty successful in implementing it. Sergei managed to catch an armbar a couple minutes in, and that was that. Russow complained that Sergei was holding his glove to aid in the submission, so there was a little controversy.

IVC 3
Wallid Ismail vs Johil de Oliveira


A good classic between BJJ vs Luta Livre. Wallid was a wild guy with great BJJ skills !
Wallid getting the takedown, a bit of an unskilled one but he got it, thatīs what matters.
Wallid punching a lot in the gnp.....controling every action of the fight.
Johil said to the ref to stop the fight after a lot of punishment in the ground.....

Wallid is a madman! The clock choke against Royce is heartbreaking but impressive!

Watched Pride 24: Cold Fury 3 last night. Not Pride's greatest, but a decent event, nonetheless.

First up was Rogerio Nogueira vs. Guy Mezger, a match that looked probably should have been more exciting than it was. Both guys were fairly tentative throughout the whole affair, and it never really left first gear. Nog edged him in every aspect, but Mezger put up a good fight and they fought to a close split decision. Had Mezger not received a yellow card for holding the ropes, he may have been given the decision. Not a particularly memorable fight.

Up next was Valentijn Overeem vs. Ron Waterman. The ever inconsistent and highly subbable Overeem was no match for his much stronger opponent, and succumb to a kimura very early in the first. How Valentijn ever managed to not only defeat, but submit, both Babalu and Randy Couture is beyond me.

After that quick submission, we were treated to a very boring twenty minutes of stalemate action between Rodrigo Gracie and Yuki Sasaki. Rodrigo's standup basically consisted of one winging overhand right, and not a whole lot else. Sasaki looked no better in that area. On the ground, there were some nice scrambles, but neither competitor was able to do much of anything. The majority of this fight is just a positional battle. Gracie came out on top, but it was far from an impressive performance. The most exciting part of this fight was probably Rodrigo's entrance.

Up next was teammate of Fedor Emelianenko, Bazigit Atajev, up against Valentijn's younger, skinnier brother, Alistair Overeem. It's really comical comparing how Alistair used to look compared to how he looks now. Two completely different people. This fight was pretty much all Alistair, outside of one very nice spinning heel kick by Atajev that knocked him on his ass. Luckily for Alistair, he partially blocked the blow and went on the dominant the grappling aspect of the fight for the rest of the round. The second round was more of the same with Overeem in full mount not doing a whole lot, but enough to remain dominant. The two are stood up and trade blows. Alistair pins Atajev to the ropes and blasts his sternum with a big knee than sends him though the ropes. Beautiful finish for Overeem.

Following that was a very good back and forth battle between Kevin Randleman and Murilo Rua. Randleman immediately came out and imposed his strength and wrestling dominance, but was never able to do a whole lot from the top position, as Ninja was constantly fishing for sweeps. In the first Ninja ended up on top in full mount, but was promptly swept by the powerful Randleman, so he pretty much abandoned that position for the rest of the fight when he ended up on top and elected to stay in side control instead. The first two round were very back and forth, with Ninka edging the ground work, and Randleman overwhelming him with powerful hooks in the standup exchanges. The end came in the third round after Randleman landed a huge left hook and landed almost entirely inside of Ninja right eye. This opened a fight ending cut, and Randleman took home the victory. Very good fight. As a side note, no matter how many times I see them, Randleman's absurdly veiny legs still make me a little sick. It looks like each thigh is home to a den of snakes.

Finally the main event, the rematch between Dan Henderson and Pride heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Hendo was a last minute replacement for Fedor, and this fight was not for the belt. The first round took place largely on the feet with both guys landing big shots. Hendo was landing rights that certainly would knock out the Big Nog of today, but thanks to his then iron chin, he was able to absorb them without much issue. When the fight was on the mat, Hendo was not able to do a whole lot while Nog worked his brilliant guard game, constantly looking for submissions and controlling him with omoplatas. At the end of the round, Nog pull off a beautiful trip that landed him in full mount. Unfortunately, it was too late in the round for anything to come of it. The second round starts with a brief exchange on the feet before Hendo executes a takedown from the clinch. Again, Hendo is able to do very little for fear of Nog's submission game. Nog comes very close to completing a kimura from guard, but Hendo defends well and in the process gets swept. Nog's BJJ really is a thrill to watch. Nog moves to side control where he works for another kimura, but Dan defends so Nog works for the straight armbar. Again it doesn't work, and the very resilient Dan Henderson survives the round. The third opens with another beautiful trip takedown from the much bigger Nogueira. Nog lands in full mount, and this time around there is enough time on the clock for him to work his game. Again he looks for the kimura that has failed so many times throughout this fight, but he quickly postures up while maintaining his grip and switches to an armbar. Dan couldn't escape this one. The story of this fight is really Dan's resilience. He impressed everyone, even in defeat. An excellent fight between two all time greats.



This came out much longer than intended.

UFC 111 Main Event

Finally saw St Pierre/Hardy which was domination of course. Hardy was pretty inept on the ground offensively but his defense was good enough to survive such as with the armbar in the 1st and St Pierre just took advantage of him from there on. Not much to say after that. TD clinic for GSP as well as he took him down at will. Side control for George was very easy. He made Hardy a ragdoll the whole fight doing what he wanted except finishing the fight as Hardy escaped every time. Loved his approach to this fight and I hope he gets well enough to fight soon.

Will see his fight with Shields soon.

True that. Hardy was too proud to give and it was more of a domination than a "match". Gutsy guy but he stood no chance against GSP.
