Unhappy PRIDE 4 - Hugo Duarte, what a disgrace !

PRIDE 4 was not a good event in my opinion......Igor vs Goodrige was a good fight, fun to watch.......but after that the whole event was boring and Mark Kerr vs Hugo Duarte was probably the worst fight Iīve ever seen in my life as a combat sports fan.....

Really.....what Duarte was doing ?? He should be embarassed by this forever....Kerr wasnīt doing that much also......Anyone else was really mad after that fight ? I know I was !


Anyway, just wanna say this....that fight was horrible !! What do you think of Hugo after that ? Did you lose a lot of respect for him after that as well ??

Duarte was a bum. Whats funny is that it took Rickson a while to put him away in the famous beach fight while Tank Abbott destroyed him in a minute.

He was lucky to get the win against HH, Harold was robbed...again

But Hugo always struck me as a typical bully. I think that the Kerr fight it hit him hard that being the toughest guy on the beach dont mean shit against a guy like Kerr.

In short the bully got bullied, and he didnt want no part of the ass kicking that was about to come his way imo

It was a horrible event. Really only worth watching for the Rickson/Takeda match. Duarte wasn't even trying to fight for some reason. He just wanted to slip out of the ring. It's almost as cringeworthy as when Kerr "fought" Branco Cikatic at Pride 2 or 3 or whichever event it was. Neither man seemd to understand the implications of no holds barred rules.

To be fair - Duarte was fighting the single most roided up monster wrestler to ever step in the octagon - Mark Kerr. That has to be imposing to anyone.

Well if you think Pride 4 was boring perhaps take up drugs or find a pastime you enjoy watching.

I dont think Duarte has anything to be embarrased about. he went into what was the superbowl of world MMA back than, with a built up hyped up rep as another tough brazilian jujitsu fighter but he got beaten up by Abbot and in this fight he tried to find a way to win but was exposed by a guy in Kerr who was one of the top 3 in the world at that time along with igor and sakuraba. Kerr was a beast and that whole period from 1993-2005 was a wonderful era in MMA a golden era and seeing a guy like duarte compete in it, good or bad was also a part of that.

Todays MMA scene is barren and a pathetic monopoly by the UFC which doesnt seem inclusive or welcoming to russians/eastern block fighters/ and asian fighters.....for sure if there was a PRIDE type org in japan today u would see russian wrestlers, sambo artists, and far eastern fighters rush to go into MMA to earn the money and plaudits that PRIDE offered. The UFC pays a pittance and is too hard to break into for these guys so they dont bother and stick with what they do.

Oh cīmon, I love PRIDE but Hugo Duarte running out of the ring blatantly quitting, was not something I would expect from a pro fighter.....it was embarassing.
Kerr was too strong, agreed, but Kerr wasnīt even trying that much as well.....

And yes, it was pobably one of the worst events ever and the worst PRIDE event IMO....

You dont think BJ Penn would beat Hugo Duarte? Ok maybe GSP.

Heres crude brawler Tank Abbott beating him to submission.

C'mon Chimba... love Penn but he had legit difficulty with bigger guys through out his career. Al be it they were ATG's...Hugo, even though is not much of a fighter, has enough luta live experience and weight advantage to ride out a UD against Penn...

Yeah I guess BJ is too small but He did fight through a standstill with Machida. Ok you say Machida was a bit green but He would absolutely destroy Duarte even then.

I was just making a point that this guy wasnt that skilled, no more skilled than a Tank Abbott yet I bet theres a handful of fighters now that would beat him faster than Rickson did.

BTW I think Rickson with a Gi is one of the greatest but as an MMA fighter, He would have had numerous loses if He fought today even in his prime.
