Pride 33 Wrap-Up

Well, it's time to officially put Pride 33 to bed. Overall, the reception of Pride by UFC fans was surprisingly overwhelming. From the forums and the dedicated UFC sites that I visited, most found the Pride 33 event to be very exciting with lots of action in the fights.

One person commented by saying that is was nice to pay for a pay per view event and actually get to see all of the fights on the fight card. Novel idea for UFC don't you think? Dana, are you listening?

It was nice to see the fans appreciating MMA "the sport" while forgetting the MMA "organizations" for a moment in time. You know, the Pride vs. UFC debate, East coast/West coast, Tupac & Biggie... that shyte doesn't matter, it's great fights that matter and they happen in hundreds of MMA organizations around the globe so let's evolve as fans of MMA at the same pace as the sport evolves.

One last congratulations to Dan Henderson for becoming the first person to hold two belts (Welterweight & Middleweight) simultaneously for a major MMA organization. I know UFC fighters GSP, Matt Hughes and Chuck Liddell aspire to what Dan Henderson has accomplished so this will be one helluva year for MMA.

Anyway, I'm going to close off Pride 33 coverage with a bunch of Pride 33 links I posted recently all on one page, this page, just bit down below. Really, I'm a fan of my own site so selfishly, I wanted this for my own personal reference and I hope you enjoy it too. I suppose you could be smarter than me and type in Pride 33 in the search box at the top left of the page too.

Please be patient while the video buffers and in case you didn't know, right click on the video screen to choose 'Go Full Screen'. You can't beat it!
