    Fight 1, 4, 6, 8, 9 & 10 are R1x10min, R2,4x5min (standard PRIDE rules) while fight 2, 3, 5 & 7 are R1x10min, R2x5min (standard Bushido rules).

    awful card business-wise, but fighting-wise (which is what is important to me) it’s one of the finer cards of the year.

    If it was to be aired on public TV then absolutely, but for attracting hardcore fans to buy the PPV and come out to Saitama I think it will do really well.

  4. Will says:

    Gomi vs. Ishida should be for the title. Pride really is the worst when it comes to figuring out title contenders.

  5. JOSH says:

    if that wasnt the most overstated comment this last few months….

  6. JThue says:

    That problem has already been taken care of, with Sakakibara stating weeks ago that they’ll have title fights of UFC-frequency next year, which will put an end to the incredible hard road to a title shot.
