i couldn't agree with you more on the caliber of talent in Pride...there are a few fighters in UFC that i like to watch but for the most part...Pride offers a great level of talent that I believe UFC does not....Fedor would kill Tim Silva...The AXe Murder will destroy Tito and Chuck...chuck couldnt beat Rampage...but UFC vs Pride..man that would be the shits

You really believe that Silva would destroy Liddell? I would beg to differ, this fight would be damn close. Whoever can capitalize on the other opponent's mistake first wins this fight.

Also, Jackson beat Liddell 3 years ago, things are totally different now ... don't be surprised if Liddell wins the rematch.

The UFC Heavyweight division is a joke - come on - Randy who retired comes back for an immediate title shot - what is that...Alex Emalianenko could be the champ in UFC let alone the fighters above him

Pride rules are definitely superior - judges too for that matter - and the cage slows down the action in UFC

Gotta give props to the UFC for the MMA surge that has hit the US though

I think Rampage would give him more of a run for his money - Liddell would take Silva because Silva's a little too wild and Chuck punches a little too straight

They'd both be great matches though

I think your argument that Silva could beat Chuck because Rampage did doesn't make a lot of sense. Tito and Vitor both beat Silva and Chuck beat them. None of thgese prove who would win in a Chuck vs Wandy match. Styles make fights and all those fights were a long time ago. People improve and others don't. Most fighters are not the same guy they were 3 plus years ago. Wandys style plays perfectly into Chuck's. I think the 2 best 205 lb. guys who have a good shot against Chuck are Lil Nog and Shogun. They have styles that might frustrate him and they are both more well rounded then Wandy. Wandy is a warrior. but I think Chuck would beat him 9 out of 10 times because of his overagressive , straigth ahead style. While I agree Pride has more depth of proven fighters in a couple of weight classes, in a Champ vs Champ matchup I think they are at a disadvantage. I think Fedor beats anybody, including cro-cop again. Chuck beats Wandy. Hendo vs Silva could go either way. I think Silva would actually have the advantage under Pride rules in the Ring, and Hendo has the advantage under UFC rules in the cage. Whover Pride moved up or down against GSp would have little chance. Also, I think Sherk would keep Gomi frustrated and on his back the overwhelming majority of the fight. Unfortunately I don't think we will ever see a full cross promotional fight card, but we can always hope.

well said hip, chuck is such a great counter puncher that it would be tough for wandy, I completely agree on every one of those(sherk gomi is really too tough to call for me though)

I'm a MMA fan. Don't care what it says on the letterhead, I just want to see entertaining fights.




Amen. I love MMA. Who cares what org. is fighting. It's about the sport not the org..



I wholeheartedly agree with both of you, but the problem comes in when fighters from rival orgs can't fight eachother, so there will always be the question of whos better. The threadstarter has a good point, but somewhat an idealistic view of it. It comes down to $$$, MMA is growing into a huge cash cow and these are legitimate buisness people making logical business decisions. It is a damn shame though.

Sorry, I just really want to see Chuck and Wandy shut everybody the f up.

If that match ever happens I'll take wagers from everybody - Chuck KO's Vandy in Round 2 - Chuck's striking is too on point for Vandy to hold his ground

I think PRIDE FC is the better organization at this time. Overall I think the fighters are much more skilled and better rounded. Of course there are definitely exceptions with some fighters.
