Quarry looked great against Shonie Carter on Saturday and the crowd was super into him and Forrest Griffin.
I can't wait for critical countdown, though it's airing on tape delay here in the US.

Anyone who hasn't heard the news about Oleg Taktarov, there's a thread about his (possible) disappearance in the Movie Forum.

Pride results:

Spoiler:
Fight #1: Pedro Rizzo vs. Sergei Kharitonov

Rd1: Sergei controls the entire fight, gets and early takedown and controls from the top position, landing knees, punches. Eventually fight gets back to the feet, but Sergei outboxes Pedro, rocking him and follows him to the ground for the TKO ref stoppage.
Result: Kharitonov wins via (t)ko round 1


Fight #2: Shogun Rua vs. Rogerio Nogeira

Too much action to summarize, suffice to say it was an action packed fight with both guys doing damage in all rounds.
Result: Shogun Rua wins via UD


Fight #3: Igor vs Overeem

round 1. flying knee by listar misses. slight trading. clinch and knee. two knees by alistar. Igor counterpunches. Clinch takedown by Alistar. Igor gets out. Alistar has Guillot9ine. IGOR TAPS.
Result: Alistair Overeem wins via tapout (guillotine) rd. 1

Fight #4: Cro Cop vs. Magomedov
round 1. jumping around the ring. nothing happeneing. both fighters so tentative. Mag goes for wild punch. misses bya mile. middle kick by Mirko. low kick by Mirko. Mag counter punches. nice punch by Mirko. nice middle kicks. high kick by mirko but blocked. body kick. nice punch by Mirko.HIGH KICK. mag still alive. trading. Nice punch by Mirko. MIDDLE KICK. IT'S OVER. LIVER KICK.
Result: CroCop wins via tko ref stoppage rd.1

Fight #5: vs. Makoto Takimoto vs. Kiyoshi Tamura
The entire fight was relatively uneventful, Tamura appeared to be toying with him for a good portion of the fight...or at least able to do damage at will. In the 3rd round Takimoto finally started to try some different things, but it was too late.
Result: Tamura wins via UD.

Fight #6: Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Pawel Nastula
Nice first MMA fight for Nastula. He took Nog down several times and attempted some submissions, but nothing of great quality and Nog escaped. Nog got gnp position more than Nastula, and eventually ended up on top GNP'ing until the ref was forced to stop the fight.
Result: Rodrigo Nogeira wins via TKO (ref) rd.1


Fight #7 Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Ricardo Arona*
Sakuraba came out aggressive, throwing kicks and punch combinations, but no real damage was done. Arona utilized his strength to control Saku on the ground and avoid any submission attempts. Saku was cut in the early part of rd2, and Arona continued to pound him when on the ground. Eventually Saku's eyes swelled nearly shut and the fight had to be stopped.
Result: Arona wins via tko (cut/eyes shut) rd.2

Fight #8 Wanderlei Silva vs. Kazuhiro Nakamura*
Silva controlled the fight as many expected. Flurries of punches, knees, kicks, and gnp overwhelmed Nakamura for most of the fight. Ref steps in and stops the fight in first round from gnp.
Result: Silva wins via tko (ref) rd.1

Just a heads up...Deep Discount Dvd has the Pride Legacy set, which consists of the first 5 pride events for around 18 bucks...that is a damn good deal, especially to see Rickson own Takada two times

You missed an outstanding event if you missed PrideFC/DSE's Bushido7 my friend. Here's a highlight of the event for those who missed it or want to revive it. It's considered by some as the greatest single event HL ever (by Hero1)

SpikeTV is airing UFC Unleashed tonight at 11PM ET/PT. Should be soon for you East Coasters, not for awhile for us west of the Pacific. The program will air fights that haven't been on television before - mostly the undercard from TUF Finale.

EDIT: Found the poster:

Does anyone know who BJ Penn lost the welterweight title to when he was in the UFC? Hughes won the title back when he fought St. Pierre but was the title just up for grabs at that point?

the ufc stripped bj of the title when he fought duane ludwig (and won) on a k1 show. he wanted to stay active, but the ufc didn't like him fighting in another organization. when hughes fought st. pierre it was for the vacant title.

Thanks. I really would like to see Penn & Hughes fight again though. Thanks to these DVD's being priced so low, I'm back into my fighting addiction full swing again - I've missed out on a lot and I'm glad to see both Pride & the UFC keep growing.......very cool and every one of these fighters deserves the attention.

I'm not so sure about that though, remember that Hughes did say he was feeling a lot of pressure from being dominant for so long and that does mess with your mind after a while....not trying to make excuses for him but something like that can play a huge factor before a big fight.

Maybe it's just me but I think it could go either way.

probably because pride 10 is one of their better events, and they want to make more money by having people buy it separately.
