I know I could of added Shogun, but I felt he was a strong favorit so I tried to keep it with the underdogs.

My pick is Nick Diaz.

the person who had the best fight was probably james lee.. his destruction of wiuff was insane, i couldn't believe myself..

but i'd go with diaz/hendo for best night at pride 33..
2/26/07 1:08:23AM
I gotta go hendo. because he did someting no one has ever done before. DIaz a close second though.Sokoudjou 3rd for the shocking upset KO. IMo you should have added Shogun and subtracted Trigg for the LnP, plus I just don't like him Twinkle toes me
2/26/07 1:29:38AM
went with diaz but how could you not be impressed with hendo
2/26/07 1:36:42AM
Diaz for sure he impresses me more and more everytime i see him...even though i expected him to beat Gomi,the fight was 10 times better than i imagined......Plus points for all that heart he showed after being cut so badly

Hendo also very impressive,but come on....Nick him or hate him,you gotta respect him

The only reason why I didn't go with Hendo is because he has gone the distance with Wandy before. But that fight with Gomi was something special. That fight had everyone on their feet jumping and screaming. And Diaz pulled off the win with a great submission that only few can pull off, expecially after getting dominated the first half of the first round and suffering that cut. Should much heart and that "He ain't no Bitch." haha...

Of course Hendo broke his hand in the first, but Hendo is already a Champ. Diaz showed that he has what it takes to be a champ after having ruff losses in the UFC and fought like a champion and pulled off an upset. Can't wait for Diaz vs Gomi II and I'm so so for Hendo vs. Wandy III. But much respect for Hendo. Well deserved.

Diaz fought through huge adversity. First he got pummeled on the mat, then he got knocked down on the feet and then he recieved not one but two huge cuts and yet he managed to make Gomi look bad in the end of the first and finish him with an incredible sub.

Diaz all the way. Hendo a good second though.

This was really tough call, but I had to go with Diaz...

That fight absolutely stunned me, Nick took the punishment early in the first, stood up to beat Gomi at his own game...

It's sad to say, but from halfway into the first until the sub at the end, the fight was reminicent of Diaz's destruction of Josh Neer...

That and I just love a great standup war that ends with an equally great sub, really shows off what MMA is all about...

Come on.

No matter what happened with Gomi and Diaz, Dan Henderson is the Fighter of the show!!!

He has won two championship belts in two weight classes at one time. Plus knocked Wandy out!!!!! He normally fights weight class lower, is smaller, and knocked him out.

Diaz is bigger than Gomi, he came down weight for the fight, Vegas rules, and it was non-title. Certainly not as much pressure or importance. He also fought a fighter who clearly has a weakness that played into Diaz's strengths. Diaz did a fantastic job, has shown he is a great fighter, but let's see what happens. He has not shown consistency.

Henderson has shown the consistency to be a champion in 2 weight classes at once. That is why he is truly the best fighter of the night!

hendo, with diaz a very close second
3/3/07 4:01:08AM
Rameau Sokoudjou

cmmmmmon he ko'ed little nog in 23 seconds!!!

2nd would go to Diaz though, so impressive.
3/3/07 2:31:02PM
a one punch Ko or a Quick sub is a good upset and all. But when you fight like Diaz and Hendo did as massive underdogs, its jsut gotta go to them. I pickde Dan just cuz of the massive size diffenerece and the little chance everyone gave him. And he proved his awesomeness. Diaz is a close 2nd though. A guy who is coming off of a rough streak at WW drops to defeat the best LW int he world.

3/3/07 4:25:13PM
