I don't think Ricco is on the same level as most of Pride's heavyweights. I think that he is in the right organization at the right time, that is why and the only reason he is a champion.
Ortiz in the other hand has the tools to take on any of Pride's light heavyweights, including Wandie. But we will have to go into the never-ending discussion about fighting in a cage or a ring, and that is not the topic of this thread.

Rico, no.
Tito, yeah he did, but I doubt he could take Vanderlei again.

Pride rules. That's all there is to say. Silva would destory tito now. Ricco has about a good a chance of beating Nog as Darcy Hordichuk does at getting 1000 points in his NHL career.

I would agree with Hockeyfighter. The Pride fighters do appear to be just top notch. and I would even gather to say they would win in a cage or in a ring. I think Nog. would suffer a bit of a disadvantage over the current UFC champ in a cage but i would also have to guess that Bob Sapp would greatly benifit fighting in a cage.

Well ... In which rules would they fight?

In the cage UFCs fighter have a chance, Tito more ...

In the ring UFCs fighters will have no chance ...

Nobody in the UFC could beat NOG.

about tito beating wanderlei that was a tough call and with ufc rules under pride rules no way, and about nog is more than obvious.

10-30-2002, 03:04 PM
I'd have to say that Nog could beat Ricco. Ricco's good, but I don't think he'd be able to beat the best fighter in the world.

Right now, I don't think Tito could beat Vanderlei. Tito's gotta have some rust due to the long lay off, and Vanderlei has been mauling people the whole time Tito's been off. So, right now, I'd pick Silva. But in a half a year or so, it's really too tough to call.

I would say that Nog would beat Ricco.....
IMO Tito would still beat Wandie....
