Default Pride Fighters werent as good as we thought?

What were supposed to be top ranked fighters are on pretty much a losing streak, does this make u think any less of pride??? just confused thats all, just all the losing from top mma fighters is wierd to see. Did UFC have the top ranked fighters all this time? Something I thought about after seeing the upsets..your thoughts.

I think it has a lot to do with the individual and how they educate themselves with the octagon/cage vs. ring and different rules of the UFC organization prior to their bout. It's not fair to generalize and say that all Pride contract fighters suck. There are exceptions, but I think that most of the big names have not really taken their accession into the UFC seriously as others have. Mirko looked like he slacked off a bit on the training and preparation and so did Nog and Shogun.

These guy's were paid a lot of money based on their reputation as top of the food chain MMA fighters and so far they have been a big disappointment to the fans.

I think you have to take into account some of these guys havent had a fight in a while, when was the last pride event?

Jackson has had success, but remember he had a tune-up, and looked rusty? Things might have been different if he had fought a champ right off the bat.

yeah, dont get me wrong they have rampage and Silva as champs already but these names and fighters like shogun and crocop and nog seem to be putting on a ****ty performance with the ufc guys. And I've seen some good points made by some and funny comments as well lol (steroids).

To Mech: What Laison meant was that roids I guess are legal in Japan or whatever...something like that:s And they are illegal in the states, they test em for it and if positive they get supspended.

Talking

You guy's think fedor is shooting up??

He is training in Siberia in a undisclosed location (ex-Soviet nuculear underground facility) and the doctors are shooting him up with roids.
Just like Ivan Drago in Rock IV.

Proof please.

If you are going to discredit a fighter please make sure you have credible sources.

Taking Ivan Drago from Rocky just won't cut it.

Nog hasn't fought any UFC guys yet. I think the pride fighters are having trouble adjusting to the cage size. Mirko lacks heart, I've always said that and I think Shogun came in thinking he was just gonna walk thru Forrest and didnt really train too his full potential.....
