Customer Rating: Summary: pride legacy vol 2 Comment: class delivery were on time everythink was all good well chuffed Customer Rating: Summary: Pride Fighting Legacy, Volume 2 Comment: In this, the 2nd installment in the "Legacy" collection, we have Pride 6-9 and 11. Five Pride events for under $30 is a pretty attractive deal for a fan of mixed martial arts.
On these DVDs, we have some memorable fights and some memorable fighter debuts. Carlos Newton and Daijiro Matsui have the first truly great battle of the collection. They fight hard and nearly evenly for 3 rounds and Newton ultimately wins the decision. Mark Kerr has a few fights and is dealt his first defeat by Igor Vovchanchyn. Igor wins with some illegal knees to the top of Kerr's head, but everyone finally got to see that Kerr can be stopped.
Some fighters who were already familiar to us from the UFC and other MMA organizations also appear in this set. Fighters like Guy Mezger, Vernon White and Tra Telligman. Fighters who make impressive showings in their debuts include Ricco Rodriguez, Mo Smith, Frank Trigg and perhaps most notably Wanderlei Silva. I was particularly shocked, though, by Frank Trigg's showing against Fabiano Iha. He shows impressive submission escape and grappling skills, yet it is his aggression and striking that win him this fight.
Other notable moments include Vitor Belfort coming back from an embarassing loss to Sakuraba to win in impressive fashion over Gilbert Yvel. Heath Herring makes his debut and looks very promising in winning his first two fights. Igor Vovchanchyn scores a shockingly impressive KO of Francisco Bueno. Sakuraba submits Royler Gracie in a somewhat controversial fight (this is where he begins his winning ways with the Gracie family, eventually earning himself the nickname "The Gracie Hunter"). There are plenty of classic matchups and exciting fights on this 5-event DVD set.
Pride 9 seems to be where the format became a bit more polished and refined. They finally begin incorporating pre-fight interviews into the shows, which helps to make things a bit more interesting and relatable.
This is a great set to own. It's still not quite as exciting as the UFC, but Pride is slowly winning me over. Customer Rating: Summary: Not as good as I thought! Comment: After receiving this product from Amazon I was a little dissapointed. The fights were a bit boring. Too much g&p; and not much striking. No extra features that are worth mentioning. The old Pride rules had the first round of 10 minutes.
So in a lot fghts the fighters exchange a few strikes and then go to the ground. Not too much is happening there and if there is no submission then you have to wait 10 minutes until the next round starts.
The DVD release is plain and simple and I would have expected more of a show. The other bad thing is that on some DVD`s there are 2 sides and you have to switch the DVD.
OK I heard that from Pride 13 they changed the rules and it is getting exciting. Customer Rating: Summary: 5 event for a good price Comment: in this pack you will see the new generation of fighters, the figthers began to be more well rounded then before, and you will see the begining of a new star in wanderlei silva. you will get alot for your money on this pack! you get great matches and with big names, and you get a wider picture of the fighters and how the pride fc become the biggest mma org. a good buy, and a must have for the fans of the sport.
i dont know why the pack have the 11th event insted of the 10th. the 10th event are of many clamed to be one of the best, maybe thats way..
-it dont include the 10th event (looks bad in a collection) Customer Rating: Summary: Second Generation Comment: There's a huge difference between this set and Legacy Vol. 1, as this one is full of action, and includes the debut of some legends in this recently born sport.
This pack includes the events where Pride FC absorbed the best fighters in the world. They took place between 1999 and 2000, when Silva, Sakuraba, Vovchanchyn, Kerr, Goodridge, Goes and Herring helped to slowly establish Pride as the only place where the best fighters could make a name for themselves.
I would say that here you'll find the second big MMA generation, as Royce, Ken Shamrock, Frye, Severn and Oleg constitute the first one. In this second generation, we start to enjoy the first really well rounded fighters, and some very entertaining stand up skills.
During this period of time, UFC had its pick moment, and slowly started to lose it's place. I guess every MMA fan would have dreamed to see Frank, Tito, Randy and Bas, fighting in these events, but they stayed at the UFC.
The only flaw in this box set, is that it doesn't include Pride number 10, surely because is so good that they want to sell it separately. Anyway..., a must have!
