Renzo Upset with Pride
Translated by Raphel Caria from magapi.cjb.net

During an official interview of Pride Grand Prix 2003 participants,
over and over, Renzo Gracie interrupted the other fighters who were talking with the media.

He got the microphone and asked several times
for the matchmaker of Grand Prix, Nobuhiko Takada, to put him on the Grand Prix card. But Renzo basically only managed to upset Takada, who said, " Renzo, Renzo... Please, donīt disturb the interviews, because I know who I will call, ok??

You are staying boring!! Please, donīt disturb anymore..." The local TV (NHK 1) transmitted the interviews on the "Pride Program," that goes every Thursday in Japan in the morning

This might be a publicity stunt.

renzo couldn't even make through the first round with any of the guys in the gp except maybe yoshida. i think rickson should fight in the gp.

Ryan should go, not Renzo.

Rickson is 180lbs and 40 something. He'd get brutally raped.

Ryan is currently 200 lbs. I truly believe that this is a publicity stunt to hype up the Gracie name entering the GP.
Is either Ryan or Tamura...Pride sure knows how to keep the fans on the edge of their seats.
