Which match up between the Gracies and the Shamrocks do you like best?
FYI. I gotta go with Royce Ken 1. Royce totally owned Shammy.

WOW, I love good groundfighting/grappling- but you really thought that was good? That was a 1/2 hour+ of stalling. In any org, by todays rules, both fighters would've at least been stood up and warned, and in PRIDE given yellow cards. That match was boring, IMHO. Ken seemed to show that he knew he just couldn't grapple on that level, and Royce just LnP'd and didn't show any attempt to advance position.

Hmm i liked the 1st one cuz it just showed that someone with no BJJ skills (but still a experinced Grappler) couldn't take on a master at it. I found it amazing to watch this skinny Brazilain kid take on this Roided up Shoot Wrestler.

Clearly the 2nd one. It was awesome to see Frank Mir dominate Sims. He got KO'd By Mir. Talk about no credible stand up. Thats my favourtie Frank Mir fight.
