I knew that Sakaraba and Smirnovas happened in K-1, But the UFC nuthugger comment you made let me know it was a guy who loved Pride and hated to see it go. I also recall having a phone conversation with you where you said Wanderlei would kill Chuck and Forrest Griffin should get his burial plot ready if he fights Shogun...Oh and all of the UFC heavyweights should just retire becuase Cro Cop is coming!!!!!!!!!! I cant believe I almost forgot that. You named 2 sucessful fighters from Pride out of about 10 that has come over. I wouldnt call Nogs performance over Herring jaw dropping, neither Werdum's fight with Arlovski. In fact if Nog fights Tim Sylvia like he did Herring give me Sylvia all day. Sokoudjou is my boy, but he got owned by Machida. I couldve sent you a personal message, but since you call yourself blasting me on the boards I blast back. See, I'm an MMA nuthugger. I've interviewed guys from UFC, Elite XC, IFL, Ring Of Fire, Pride and organizations you've never even heard of. That's MMA nutthugger, not some guy that thinks all MMA runs through Japan (K-1/Pride). I appreciate the sport and I will talk to and support all facets of the game and any organization. See once you've had a fight in the UFC you are a UFC fighter not, guess where he came from? When Rampage beat Chuck he had fought Marvin Eastman in the UFC making him a UFC fighter, not a guess where he came from Pride...What makes me a Nick Diaz nutthugger? Let me guess because he gogoplata'ed the great Pride champ Gomi and I had it as submission of the year! Get real! By the way Nog is an UFC fighter now! It's best you hit me on a PM!
