Like all sports once the lawyers and scientists get involved it's no fun anymore.

Hahaha.

i also agree with the second paragrah and we all knew this was gonna happen once TUF exploded in popularity. the cable ban era UFC was far more interesting than this, even though the athletes were at a lower level overall, it had a raw appeal that the corporatized UfC can never replicate. PRIDE was special because it combined AAA production values with the wild west vibe of early UFC.

RE: What happened?
when I was watching Pride back then at that moment I knew I was watching something truly special.
A lot of times you take things for granted and then later on you realized it was special.

at the time of PRIDE, esp BUSHIDO GP and MWGP era.. I knew I was watching the most special thing EVA.

the olympics could not even touch PRIDE at the time.

I think PRIDE GP 2000 started the golden era of MMA and thankfully I was fully aware of that at the time. Opening fights that were as intriguing as the main events. The amazing intro and victory themes; non-contrived storylines, and tournaments. It had that too good to be true quality that a lot of sports have just before the NPC demographic catches on, at which point they all go to shit. F1 in the 80s and 90s and presumably soccer in the 60s and 70s had the same vibe.

Pride GP 2000 was great. that was around the time I started getting back into MMA again.
I was into MMA from UFC1 then kind of dropped off a bit after UFC went into the dark ages.

I didn't think PRIDE truly got great until after Pride 25 with the new management.

the older pride had too many japanese tomato cans
