The following is a post made by MMA legend "El Guapo" Bas Rutten over at the Sherdog forums describing the back story with PRIDE Vice President Jerry Millen.


"To me the records were just a starting point," recalls John Paul Jones, "The most important thing was always the stage show. So many great nights. At our worst we were still better than most. At our best we could just wipe the floor with the lot of them. It was just a very good live band."

Thanks zephead,
Wow to hear Bas speak like that. I guess Dana's right whenever he says that the guys at Pride are a bunch of idiots and they're going to go bankrupt.

Millen is retarted. I wish we could have Mauro and Bas back they were great.

Ya I almost wish Bas would come to the UFC and replace Goldberg (not that I'm a Goldberg hater like some people).
I was thinking more about Bas' situation and it's really sad. He is a great person and deserves better. That fact that Pride didn't pay him enough so he still had to find odd jobs on the side is just aweful.
And on the forums throughout the internet people say Pride pays better than UFC... I doubt it.

Wow, that really brought me up to date on this situation.

I knew as soon as I saw that Millen character at the Pride 33 wiehg-ins that he was a douche.

Considering English is Bass' second or third language that wasn't written badly at all.
