From the Oaska Dome and the Saitama Super Arena in Japan... A legendary event in Japan, PRIDE FC matches the world's elite fighters in competitions of honour and art.

With sixteen middleweights participating, this is definitely a tournament of epic proportions! Who will take home the championship belt?

This event consists solely of the opening round of the 16 man middleweight tournament. There are some exciting fights, but, as the commentators point out, a lot of the fighters seem to be a bit hesitant and trying to play it safe in order to reach the next round. It still contains a number of entertaining fights. Full fight card below:
- Wanderlei Silva vs. Hidehiko Yoshida - good striking vs judo matchup.
- Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Quinton Jackson - explosive striking matchup.
- Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Dong Sik Yoon - OK fight, but a bit of a mismatch.
- Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Dan Henderson - really liked this fight, good BJJ display
- Alistair Overeem vs. Vitor Belfort - good matchup
- Igor Vovchanchyn vs. Yuki Kondo - not the most exciting fight, but OK
- Ricardo Arona vs. Dean Lister - least exciting fight of the opening round
- Kazuhiro Nakamura vs. Kevin Randleman - nice wrestling vs judo matchup.
This event contains the quarter finals of the middleweight tournament plus 4 non tournament fights.
I'm not going to give details of the quarters (for people who don't want to know the outcomes), but will say that the remaining fighters pick up the pace and the excitement in the quarters after playing it safe (for some of them) in the opening round. All four quaterfinals are good, exciting fights and one specifically often pops up on people's "top 10 mma fights of all time" lists.Read more ›
