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.

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

Wonder if they are going to show any Fedor fights? I'm thinking no

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.
