Arona is REAL ****ing good. He had as good a chance as anyone in that tourney, better than most actually. His style just doesn't appeal to most people.

arona is a good fighter it's just that he does not take risk when he fights he can control anyone in that touny he has strong wrestling skills and is strong as a bull and is good with subs it's just that he does not try them cause he think it is a risk

Funny how people bash Ricardo for G&P and praise the likes of Hughes and Sherk that have a similar style. Well enough about that, I do not think that Pride payed him off.

Same style of ground and pound. Besides the takedowns, what else is entertaining about sitting on someone's guard and punch away. Arona takedowns are not pretty, but have you ever seen more explosiveness and determiantion on a MMA takedown?

I think if anything like that was going on, Arona stepped down to help Busta get his foot in the door at Pride. They had an article in Fightsport about how Pride didnt want to sign Busta because he is not known to the Japanese, ect. ect......

hughes and sherk are alot busier pounding. however, arona is an amazing athlete and was my pick to win it all...to bad hes out. i dont think busta has the strength to avoid being slammed.

why would they pay him off? i don't really think he had much of a chance of winning the grand prix.
