HW 2004, so many great tournament matchs, and the non-tournament matches were great aswell.

The 2003 MW tournament also set up two great rivalries in Wanderlei / Rampage and Chuck and Rampage


Ah I miss Pride Grand Prix tournaments, talk about the glory days of MMA, brings a tear to my eye thinking about them!

Lol you can all probably guess which one I enjoyed most. Close second was the 05 MW GP, Shogun had the hardest road, and he KO'd his was to super stardom.

2000 OWGP.

I can't justify the pick to anyone who wasn't around then, but Sakuraba's matches with Royce and Igor seemed larger than life back then. Plus there was the story or Coleman doing what Kerr was suppoed to do (and vice-versa).

I took Ruas 2005. His victorys over Lil/Nog( fight of the year candidate IMO) Page, and Arona were awesome.
