    I still rewatch atleast one Pride FC fight a week, at minimum. Were definitely good times. the war between Chute Box & BTT, Igor, Hellboy, the OWGP's, plenty of things to be glad to have seen.

    Lest we forget:

    Pride Final Conflict in 2004 was the first MMA fight I ever watched.

    The problem really is that MMA is attracting few elite grapplers these days and the ones it does often just do MMA as a sideline rather than committing to it like Fedor, Nog, Jacare, etc.

    I think its partly down to the UFC doing a poor job of being proactive in going after talent and partly due to BJJ itself paying much better these days either from training or competition. It used to be back in the day when you had someone making waves in BJJ and especially ADCC it was almost expected they would switch to MMA in the end, this decade though that's happened far less often.

    The dominance of the wrestling or jack of all trades style in MMA these days has much more to do with the decline of sub grappling and striking talent coming into the sport.

    Although back in the day as well it wasn't just Pride of course, the UFC during the Pride era tended to have much stronger cards as well and both together ment that stacked shows happened pretty often.

    Not much else to be said, I'll never enjoy MMA as much as I did during the days of Pride.

    It was a bit depressing in a way that Pride ended when it did as I think if it had carried on for another 12-18 months it would arguably have reached the end of the generation that pushed though in the early 00's. Fedor reamcthing Crocop, maybe fighting Barnett plus the potential for Shogun taking over from Wanderlei at the top at 205lbs.
