Customer Rating: Summary: not too bad Comment: this pride was an impressive event on paper. consisting of fighters like kerr, igor, newton, henderson and sakuraba i thought how could this be anything but great? however once i actually began watching did i realize that good fighters does'nt necessarily mean good fights. most of the fights basically consisted of lay and pray tactics on the ground, however some of the fights worth mentioning are 1) dan hendrson vs. vanderlei silva - i have a mixed opinion of this fight. standing it was a war with both fighters looking as if they could knock the other out, but once it went to the ground it basically foreshadowed the fights to come. 2) carlos newton vs. johil de oliviera - at first glance a boring match, but on closer inspection a superb chess match display of skill and timing. oliviera defending his guard and newton constantly trying to pass. Very educational. 3) sak vs. gracie - where are the antics????? probably the worst sak vs. gracie encounter i ever seen! sure sakuraba gave Ryan a nice spanking at the end of the fight but more than 90% of it was booring. Customer Rating: Summary: Some good fights Comment: Like every event I guess, there were some boring fights, but overall, this DVD had enough big names to keep it entertaining at least. The Sakuraba fight was a little disappointing from the start, but some of the undercard fights made it worth the money - like watching Mezger, Vovchanchyn, Silva, Herring, Rodriguez, Newton, Henderson, and Yvel. Customer Rating: Summary: Boring Comment: This dvd was full of lay and pray tactics. Most of the matches consisted of one person laying in the guard and doing nothing. They didn't even try submissons or the typical ground and pound. Save your money. Customer Rating: Summary: The Sakuraba fight alone makes this a must have!!! Comment: Pride 12 (a.k.a. Cold Fury) contains the the Sakuraba vs Ryan Gracie fight in which Sakuraba literally spanks him in the corner for laughs. His fourth Gracie...Incredible! It also has the amazing battle between Vanderlei Silva and Dan Henderson. Those in themselves are fantastic but there are a bunch of other great matches on it as well. Order it right now!!!
