I like Arona, I just dont think Silva fought 100% against him. He wasnt his usual aggresive self. If Silva can get all over Arona, like Shogun did, he should win.

yep! I can't wait to see it, only thing that sucks is that I can't visit the usual mma sites I go to because there will be spoilers.

How awesome is Gomi?

Silva and Arona need another rematch, but Silva was doing great round 1. Stuffing all Aronas takedowns. Round 2/3 were mostly for Arona, but Silva was doing really good fighting from his guard. Arona could hardly land any decent shots.

I dont understand why Crocop didnt go for any takedowns. It just shows how he needs to work on his hands a lot more, instead of relying on his kick. I dont want to say 1-dimensional since we have seen him on the ground and hes okay.

yeah, Gomi looked great

and the arona fight...even though it seemed like silva had control most of round one, he still never landed anything either. watching that fight just makes me thing that shogun is gonna tear apart whoever he faces next out of them.

cro cop looked all around disappointing. he was not the aggresser, he didn't try for a single takedown and i'm really surprised that he didn't get charged on when he kept walking away and looking at the clock. i think that since cro cop was the no1 contender going into the fight, hunt will get a shot at fedor now. but that prolly won't be much of a fight, because fedor will make hunt fight from the ground

did you see alexandor fight? it didn't show it on the pay per view i watched

this was Heath Herring at the K1-Dynamite show on NYE





Nastula was putting up a real good fight, he was giving Alex a hard time but eventually Nastula gassed and Alex got the submission win but really it just looked like Nastula was too tired to go on.

Pride Fighting Championships: Tell us about next year’s heavyweight prospects, including how Mirko was feeling before the fight.
Nobuyuki Sakakibara: Mirko had a cold before he left Croatia and a slight fever of 37C (98.6F) after coming to Japan. He saw a doctor and despite that, climbed into the ring. As you saw in the fight, Mirko fought with shoes on but the truth is that he hurt his ankle and apparently wore the shoes so his opponent wouldn’t notice. Although it’s a fact that Mirko climbed into the ring full of injuries, he’s not the type of fighter to use that as an excuse and I would like to have a Hunt VS Mirko rematch with both in good shape.
