About time IMO. Should be a chance to familiarize the casual fan with some of the greatest fights in MMA history, and show where some of mma's greatest fighters built there reps.

I saw a soccer kick the other day in a brazilian match and it brought back all those great Pride memories.... almost brought a tear to my eye.

They should just call it "The Best of MMA"

i love Pride, it had so much more emotion to it than the UFC

Nice, I hope the put Rampage vs. Liddell 1 in the first show.

Show some of the '05 GP so people can meet Shogun.

Oh man, this is going to be awesome. Can't wait to see all those old Pride matches with the awesome entrances and soccer kicks. Good move by Dana.

Probably no entrances, just fights, a fighter promotion machine.

Yeah, that's too bad. He had some wars in Pride. I guess if I were Dana I wouldn't promote the competitions #1 fighter

This is gonna be great! I dont even care if they dont show any Fedor, which Im sure that they wont. I could never see Rampage vs Arona too many times.

It's great to see PRIDE on tv again, I watched PRIDE all the time on ESPN, then I went out and bought like every PRIDE dvd I could. A good move for Spike TV and a great treat for the MMA fans.

It's about time.

Wonder if they'll dedicate a whole episode to the Royce/Saku match?
Probably not,but that would be cool.

If there are no Fedor fights in this,then the title is false.Fedor fought more big name fighters in PRIDE,no ufc heavy champ has fought the list of names Fedor fought in PRIDE!!!!

This will probably be used to build up the old PRIDE stars that are now in the UFC, like Rampage, Shogun, Wandy and so on. Or to show the worst fights from any outside competition.( like that episode of Unleashed rthey showed before Aflictions first show.) But who couldnt have seen that coming really? Either way, its great to see Dana actually doing something with the PRIDE name. I would have never thought it would happen. I cant wait to sit back and watch some of those classic moments in MMA

Anybody want to bet they show Chuck KOing Overeem a bunch of times right before Alistair fights Fedor?
