probably a wise choice, pick complete thugs and the show wouldn't last past 3 weeks before it would be scrapped i'm sure

Very good card, too long to wait though . Lindland and Murray were hyped up to eventually meet at Cagerage, perhaps this will now happen in the UFC.

Pride FISTS OF FIRE

Friday, February 25th, 2005

Top 3 fights should be good, loads of good fighters on the rest of the card, but sadly they aren't fighting each other- more cans on this card than in my local recycling dump Predictions in red.

Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (Croatia) vs. Mark “The Hammer” Coleman (USA) Coleman
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (USA) vs. Murilo “Ninja” Rua (Brazil) Rampage
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (Brazil) vs. Alistair Overeem (Holland) Nog
Choi Mu Bae (Korea) vs. Sergei Kharitonov (Russia) Kharitonov
Igor Vovchanchyn (Ukraine) vs. Yoshiki Takahashi (Japan)Igor
Hirotaka Yokoi (Japan) vs. Mario Sperry (Brazil) Sperry
Hiromitsu Kanehara (Japan) vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (Brazil) Rua
Tom "Big Cat" Erickson (USA) vs. Fabricio Werdum (Brazil) Erickson
Kiyoshi Tamura (Japan) vs. Aliev Makhmud (Azerbaijan) Tamura-never heard of other guy

Personally dont think anyone can touch Fedor at the moment, but it could be an interesting fight. Will be hard enough for Crocop to get past Coleman-hence why I have went for Coleman to pull off a shock victory.
Just wish pride would try to get some young fighters with potential in the card, instead a bunch of no-hopers with lousy records.

Episode 5 of The Ultimate Fighter was probably the best yet.





If they could get this kind of promotion behind their PPVs, they'd be mainstream in no time.

Apparently the finalists will fight on April 9th on normal free TV in the states, but they are also going to bring back the other guys to fight each other on the same card. Ken Shamrock vs Rich Franklin is going to be the main event on that show which should be interesting especially given that RF is moving up a weight class and KS is moving down. I'm a big fan of both guys.

I guess Shamrock was right about Tito Ortiz on the last PPV, when he said that Ortiz was only good at talking. That was the match that they wanted on the tv show, and Shamrock had agreed to it. This new fight will probably hurt the ratings a little, but Shamrock and the finals should keep them fairly strong.

I would be very surprised if that happened, Ken will be too strong for him imo.

Hello all,

I'm new to this MMA stuff. Not really seen anything (beyond a few clips d/l'd from some sites). I don't have Sky.

I saw that there is a programme on C5 late Tuesday evening described as:
"The very best in Muaythai rules fighting presented by Tasmin Lucia Khan. Highlights from a top UK promotion with the best in Thai and UK fighters"

Is this an interesting style? Worth setting the VCR for?

Thanks
Arthur

Arthur,

in all honesty there is very little MMA on sky. The only channel that shows anything is Bravo - and up until recently that seemed to be on one week gone the next.

This month though Bravo have given the UFC an almighty push - its been on every night at 11pm & there is talk that they intend to show the next few UFC events on a 24hr delay from the US. Most people however d/l the events on the internet as they usually appear within a few days of the PPV being broadcast in the US. This also gives you access to Pride FC - the Japanese equivalent of the UFC.

Pride PPV is on Friday night in the U.S., I believe (it was pre-empted this week, because all of the systems were showing the WWE PPV instead). I've had a quick look at the ten fights from the Japanese broadcast, and I wasn't impressed. It came across like a Bushido show.
