Some had success some didn't. A lot of those guys wound up pretty shopworn after all their Pride battles.

Some guys have had sucess some havn't. You name rua but he was finished by Forrest almost lost to a 40+ Coleman ,finished chuck had a couple good fights against machida and just lost to Hendo. Anderson I wouldn`t really consider a Pride fighter, that`s like considering Wand a UFC fighter, he had 3 ufc fights before he went to pride going 1-2. Big Nog has been finished 3 times in the ufc never in pride even had his arm snapped who would have guessed that.... Too bad things didn`t work out for CC I thought he would have more sucess. I`m not sure Gomi is wrestling friendly.

Rampage has been hot and cold but ended the Liddell era, Wandy has shown signs that he still has it, Lil Nog just beat the poop out of Tito, The sky might be the limit for Overeem,Barnett is still a top 5 guy and might be the guy to get the next title shot. Rua still has a few good more years left. Hendo has 1 more trick up his sleeve.

So all in all it shows things can go either way.

Especially considering Pride ended in 2006 that means they will be dying out like verterans form ww2.

Who were the main guys in the UFC during the heyday of Pride???


Chuck Liddell - got KO'd multiple times, shot to ****, retired
Randy Couture - got badly beaten a few times, past it, retired
Tito Ortiz - has been spanked more times than a fat hooker's ass, close to retirement
Matt Hughes - got KO'd a few times, shot, close to retirement
Jens Pulver - demolished regularly, cut, a shadow of his former self
Rich Franklin - has been badly beaten a few times, now a peripheral/irrelevant figure
Evan Tanner - lost 4 of last 5 in the ufc, 3 by tko, stopped fighting in '08
Tim Sylvia - former 2 time ufc hw champ, has been reduced to fighting bums ever since beaten by Nog & Fedor
BJ Penn - went 1-1-3 in last 5 fights, now retired


NEWSFLASH! - Fighters get old, decline, and start to lose. How anyone can think this is unique to the fighters from Pride is utterly mind-boggling. The UFC guys of the same era have fared every bit as badly, if not worse. The issue is age and wear n tear, not what organization they came from!!!!

Sorry, but you deserve a big: for this thread. It's too obvious.
just what I was going to say,its not pride fighters,a generation of fighters passed.

when he got KTFO by gabriel gonzaga he said he was still dizzy from getting elbowed when he was on the ground. Since he wasn't used to defending elbows in pride.
So really your whole shitty thread has been reduced to clinging on to one fighter, Crocop?

Sorry, this thread has been a total bust.

Anyone who thinks Wanderlei was a live fighter when he went to the UFC is crazy.

The brutal defeat against Mirko was the final nail in the coffin. That ended Wanderlei as a top fighter.

Oh and we should believe everything sonnen says shouldnt we. The same guy who cant even admit his drug cheat without finding some BS excuses.

Lets just look at the some of names Silva beat in pride.

Quinton Jackson twice.
Dan Henderson
Sakuraba 3 times
Tamura
Yoshida
Minowa
Arona
Fujita

All Japanese retards then were they. Stop the hate!!

UFC is rigged because Anderson can win 14 fights in a row (0 losses) but cant get more than 3 in Pride (2 losses).

So true. The Wanderlei who fought Chuck in the UFC was patently not the same guy who fought Rampage in Pride.
