Editorial Reviews:

PRIDE 32: The Real Deal was a mixed martial arts event and was held by the PRIDE Fighting Championships. The event took place on October 21, 2006, at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was the first PRIDE event to be held outside of Japan, and in front of an audience of 11,727. Since the event took place in Nevada, PRIDE had to modify its rules to follow Nevada's version of the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts for this event. PRIDE followed Nevada's MMA rules for the most part, in effect using the same rules as other promotions in Nevada like the UFC, but it used a ring to stage contests and prohibited elbows as it already did in its own rules (elbow strikes are allowed in UFC, just not downward striking elbows). Matches were three rounds of five minutes each, and if a match went the distance, it would be judged by Nevada's 10-point must system with Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) judges, which is different from PRIDE's own judging criteria.

Summary: Thoroughly entertaining
Comment: Just purchased Pride 32 a few days ago and to my surprise it was better than I thought. The majority of the matches were entertaining(except for Hendo/Belfort). Probably the most entertaining fight was Nakamura vs Travis Gailbraith. There wasn't much technical fighting in this match just a slug it out brawl. The O'haire vs Butterbean match was orginally slated to be Mark Hunt vs Butterbean, but for whatever reason Hunt couldn't compete and O'harie took his place.

Some of the reviewers pointed out that this DVD lacked any special features which is true, but what it does have that most pride DVD's don't have are interviews with the winners after their fights. There is also a surprise ring appearance by one of Pride's top fighters. In all I thought this was a pretty good DVD.

Summary: Lots of finishes on this one
Comment: Pride 32 was the first Pride event held on US soil in Las Vegas and features stars Robbie Lawler, Fedor Emelianenko, Dan Henderson, and Shogun Rua + lots more. A total of 8 fights. Every fight except one ends in a knockout or submission and some of the knockouts were very impressive including one of the best flying knees I've ever seen. Main event features Mark Coleman vs Fedor Emelianenko in a rematch. Coleman gets his face busted up bad! Only thing I didnt like was lack of special features. All you get is a fighter intro video and a photo gallery, whoopdy do, right?

Fight Card:

Joey Villasenor vs. Robbie Lawler-10/10(Doesnt last long, awesome finish to this one)
Kazuhiro Nakamura vs. Travis Galbraith-10/10(Very entertaining and ends in knockout)
Phil Baroni vs. Yosuke Nishijima-7/10
Dan Henderson vs. Vitor Belfort-5/10(Only dud of the event, goes to decision)
Eric Esch vs. Sean O'Haire-7/10
Josh Barnett vs. Pawel Nastula-8/10
Mauricio Rua vs. Kevin Randleman-8/10
Fedor Emelianenko vs. Mark Coleman-9/10

Summary: butchered
Comment: this dvd has incredible fights and great finishes. it also highlights some of the best fighters in the world... however this dvd is butchered horribly. there are basically no special features and the walk ins are not shown entirely ever on the event!!! or the opening ceremony.. i am very disapointed in zuffa for destroying another great pride event. it features great bouts from shogun rua, emilianenko fedor, robby lawler, butterbean... the list goes on. worth the buy for the fights alone, but dont expect anything more.
