PRIDE GP 2005 discussion thread (WARNING spoilers)
    #4590459 - 08/28/05 11:24 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

just watched the silva vs arona fight...FUCK FUCK FUCK i wanted silva to win..but nonetheless it was a great fight...1st round it was on the ground, arona on top pounding on silva. 2nd round not much action in the first 2 mins, standup with mainly silva kicking to score points...afterwards arona took silva to the ground and started pounding. silva was doing a good job punching back but it went to a unanimous decision for arona...

next to watch... overeem vs rua

i'm really going for chute boxe...so i hope rua wins and takes the belt. but then again i really like overeem as well and i've been going for him since he's the underdog...

what a fucking disappointment :frown:

and i think you know who will win the main event..my prediction...fedor

so the rua vs overeem fight...

from a woman's perspective..damn overeem has a fucking hot ripped body :grin: but then rua is a handsome bugger :P

ok for reals now...1st round lots of standup action, wow overeem's reach is good, loads of kneeing..i love it when i see muay thai in these fights...damn overeem had about 2 guillotine attempts and rua was able to pull out...it's all on the ground now...then it's standup and overeem is rocked by rua...FUCK A GOOD FIGHT...after 6 mins into the 1st round overeem looks pretty tired and running out of energy, rua has side mount and is pounding on overeem...soon becomes full mount..overeem is getting pounded on

that's it...rua wins!

RUA VS ARONA GO RUA

werdum vs zentsov

werdum being apart of hte crocop squad gym, specialist in brazillian jiu jitsu...supposidly he's an up and coming fighter (someone to watch just like in my opinion joakim hansen :grin:)

fight starts off with werdum doing a flying knee kick and missing. goes to the ground...nice...werdum won by triangle choke 6 mins into the 1st round

zentsov looks like a big teddy bear :p what's up with the russians and looking calm all the fucking time

ok so the brazillian anthem is played...it's chute boxe vs the brazillian top team...

no real staredown betrween the two unlike the one arona and silva had...

the fight goes down after a few seconds...arona on top...then rua gets out...rua tries to stop him hits him a bit on the ground....fight goes back up ...rua strikes arona is ROCKED...fight goes back on the ground...you can tell arona is fatigued...they go back down again rua with side mount and pounding on arona's ribs...rua starts pounding on rua...and the fight is over after 2 something minutes

RUA WITH A TKO....RUA WON THE TOURNAMENT!!

1st round start of hte round all stand up...crocop attempts his deadly left high kick but it's blocked...ots of striking going on...another attempt of a left kick by crocop and it's answered with a right hand strike...oh wow this is looking fucking good so far...another attempt of a left highkick by crocop and fedor falls out of the ring but also manages to take down crocop...both go back to standing, whoa crocop gets rocked....he manages to stay up...now it goes to the ground and fedor is on top...fedor has a nosebleed from a left hand punch by crocop and the fight is timed out

I'm doing great I suppose...summer's been a blast! I've been out on the rock maybe 1/3 of the time, has little time for anything else (like a girlfriend, or a thesis I'm supposed to finish :smile:) Ei kai t?ss? muuta, mit? itsellesi kuuluu?

btw. Do they show MMA on any channel that can bee seen in Finland, like Eurosport? Haven't really watched it at all, and I'm curious.

My first pride card I've ordered and Shogun impressed the hell out of me. I thought he was going to get beat down after the first part of the semis but after slicking out of that guiltoine he was pure urgency! urgency! emergency! beat down.

I thought Cro Crop did alot better then the announcers gave him credit for and he landed some good leather too bad Fedor is from Cybertron.

Wow. Well, I just got done watching the whole ppv of Pride Final Conflict 2005. It was truly a surprising event each round and battle of the way.

First of all, I was under the impression that I'd have to wait a week for the ppv to come out in USA.. but then I decided to double check, and lo and behold, I discovered that my cable company offered it today at 5:30 pm. Gleefully, of course, I decide to order the hell out of that! And this was yesterday, mind you, so all of you MMA fans can imagine how suspenseful and damn near tortorous the wait was, let alone the fights themselves.
I made sure to stay away from all the MMA sites, and I was even hesitant to browse the Pub today.. Thank God the Shroomery isn't filled with too many MMA-noob-fans; my whole night could've been spoiled. Hell, I even refused to open a PM from Liquid Smoke, just out of spoil-paranoia. Interestingly, directly thereafter, I see the Pub's current thread on the forum index: "Pride GP 2005 Discussion Thread..." Created by Boo.
I stopped right there, and decided to exit the Shroomery for the day. I suspect Boo wouldn't ever dare to spoil another's MMA-veiwing, of course... But this was the most anticipated MMA-fight in history!! I just had to go the whole nine yards in beefing up the spoil-prevention security.

So, finally came the PPV..
I was thrilled, pumped up and ready... You'd almost think I was going to be fighting in that ring, if you saw me, heh.

Then comes the first fight...
Igor, a very popular, well-liked and favored fighter amongst many. Such a genuinely nice guy, as almost any could easilly tell. Yet, he's quite the assbeater to be taken seriously. Personally, I thought this fight was going to be pretty darn lopsided with his opponent Nakamura. But boy was I surprised at the neck-to-neck leads, by the two fighters. I coulnd't tell if Igor just wasn't having his night that night, or if Nakamura was just that good. So I was a bit surprised when Igor lost... Although, in retrospect, it was still a pretty close fight. Igor made some surprisingly good armbar escapes, very rapidly. I was impressed.

Moving along..
Wanderlei Silva vs Ricardo Arona.
Oh man, I was stoked to see these two fight.. Especially after the intense animosity shown between the two at the weigh-ins... I was really unsure of how this fight was going to turn out. I knew Arona was going to give Wandy a hard time.. And I was somewhat surprised at the performance of Wandy, or more specifically, the lack of the usual aggression and Wandy-style fighting. But the more and more Arona laid on top of Wandy over time, the more I realized it was easily going to be a judges decision for Arona. And indeed I was correct. Even after that suspicion was confirmed, I was still in a slight shock at the fact that Wandy lost. But, this is MMA after all... and if there's anything that MMA has taught us, it's that anybody can be taken out - and I'm not talking about a dinner and a movie.

Mauricio Shogun and Alistair Overeem... I thought Overeem was goingto get Shogun in his guillotine choke, and win it in a rather short amount of time.. Boy was I wrong. Again, I was surprised. Shogun prevailed. Enough said.

Tank's fight with Yoshida. Eh, well, I was excited just to see Tank fight.. but not all surprised at the outcome. I suppose Tank did control alot, but y'know how Tank mixes with guys like Yoshida. Overall, it just wasn't a good matchup for Tank. I'd rather see Tank fight Hunt or the like.

Pretty decent fight with Fabricio Werdum and Roman Zentsov.
Was sorta expecting Roman to win. Yet, again, I was surprised. Did I mention this whole event has been...surprising? :wink:


Ah.... And then....

THE FIGHT


Fedor Emelianenko vs Mirko Cro-cop

The fight I was anticipating the most.. just as everyone in the World that was watching. By now, I was starting to worry that I was going to have yet another "surprise", as I was really hoping that Fedor would emerge victorious... and with the way things have went all night, I was almost having second thoughts. I literally talked to Fedor on the screen: "C'mon Fedor... Win! Don't let me down now... Beat him!" as he was walking to the ring.

Then the bell rings. Fedor is actively leading, and starts pulling out his strategy, and did he ever execute the just the *ideal* strategy for Cro-cop beautifully. And wow... I couldn't freakin' believe some of the things I saw! Fedor even gave Mirko a taste of his own medicine, with some high kicks of his own!

My jaw dropped in amazement. "What the hell is going on? This is almost too backwards!!"
His Muay Thai training shined through, and in Cro-cop's defense, I think his ground-game training showed well too, as Fedors GnP attacks were somewhat neutralized. I also really have to give Fedor serious credit for even taking Mirko down at all - which is something most fighters have never, ever been able to pull off. On top of that, Fedor took 2 or 3 liver shots - clean shots! Fedor's teammate Magedemov couldn't even stand after just ONE hit to the liver.
I think Fedor was even grazed/cut on his head by Cro-cops attempted left-high-kick... and the machine is still fighting, of course. Extremely impressive.
Mirko CroCop, in his defense, is still a phenomenal fighter, which conversely, only exemplifies how good Fedor is.



Fedor has once again lived up to his Terminator stigma, and showed the world that he IS one unstoppable fighting machine, with his dominating win over Mirko Cro-cop. I gained even more respect and impression for Fedor, which is saying quite a bit. Although, the KGB Headquarters could really use some Dermatological-scientists to implement better skin-technology on Fedor. Fedors skin once again showed its sensitivity, with a mildly battered up face and cut. I almost dreaded that the fight would end in a No Contest, due to doctor stoppage for all the bleeding. Thankfully, that never happened. Anyway, congratulations to Fedor. Fedor, you are THE Man. The Greatest HW in MMA History.

FEDOR>God>Everyone else.

THE END


And then the final conflict for the GP.

Well, I thought it was going to be another somewhat lopsided match, similar to Arona vs Silva. Once again, I was surprised! What the hell kind of fancy fucking kick was that from Shogun? That was something else. Pretty ballsy too. Anyway, I was expecting Arona to take it to the ground and dominate... But Shogun just wasn't letting that happen. He even got some knees to Arona's head - something didn't even pull off. And so.. Shogun managed to get Arona down, and started pounding on Arona's face till the referee stopped it.
Good job by Shogun. Although Arona could've been a little better, methinks. Anyway, after Shogun won, something dawned upon me. A suspicion. A suspicion that.. perhaps.. Just maybe.. Silva might've gave the fight to Arona, so his protege' Shogun, could hold the belt, and this way, Silva wouldn't have to fight Shogun, who is on his same team. In retrospect, I remembered Silva seemed a little less reactive of the loss to Arona, than I'd expect him to be - on top of his lackluster performance [although it was still a very heated one]. Ah, well, the world may never know. Any big fight will always have its own questions and wonders.
All in all, 'twas a good fight.

It was a good show, and easily worth the $30 for the PPV.

I am a satisfied MMA fan.

The End
or... is it?

If any of you fans happen to collect the Fedor vs Crocop fight on your computer, I would deeply appreciate the hook-up. Likewise, if I find it, I'll provide it here through yousendit.

Thanks Boo.

Here's a clip of Fedor giving Crocop a high kick of his own:

It's pretty damn funny, considering the two fighter's usual styles.

sure a fighter has loyalty to their team, but when it comes to it..doesn't matter whom you fight even if they're on the same team..it's all about one's self. i just think silva reacted how he did because it probably dawned on him that he should have been more agressive in that fight. either way, silva will eventually fight rua or arona if he wants to keep the middleweight belt...which he probably does. or...maybe he's past his prime now? but yeah, the world will never know
