Enjoy this amazing Best of Pride FC video on their 20th anniversary
Pride Never Die!
For those of us who loved Pride FC, it will never truly die. The pageantry, the amazing talent pool, the circus matchmaking, it was all part of something very, very special. Pride went all in on production, and their shows looked a lot like professional wrestling, with the ramp, the huge screen, the lights, and pyro. It’s something people feel is a little bit lacking in today’s buttoned-up UFC. Then there were the fights, goodness, the fights.
We did an article earlier this year about the ten year anniversary of the Pride 33 event in Las Vegas. I was fortunate enough to be at that event, as was our editor Evan Shoman and it was a night to remember.
Today marks the 20th Anniversary of Pride 1, their first-ever event. That event featured Rickson Gracie as well as Renzo, Gary Goodridge, Oleg Taktarov, Dan Severn and others. It was the first of many amazing events that featured some of the best in the world. To help the memory of Pride live on, we’re sharing this amazing Best of Pride video. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
