"this is the opening round of the mw tourney. one thing that i was surprised by is that dan henderson got a round 1 bye even though he was the current mw champion (185 was ww in pride technically). all in all i waited quite awhile for this dvd because it was delayed coming out... but in the end i was more than satisfied to own it. as usual this dvd was stacked up with star power with such names as- Paulo Filho, Denis Kang, Ninja Rua, Kazua Misaki, Phil Baroni, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Mach Sakari, Gegard Mousassi, Ryo Chonan and well you get the point. GET THIS along with 12 and 13!!"
Pride Bushido 11 (Semi-Spoilers Ahead)

"Bushido 11 was the first round of a three round welterweight (185 lb.) tournament (which would continue with Bushido 12 & 13). This was a solid and enjoyable event. Descriptions of matches follow below.
Murilio Bustamante v. Amar Suloev (8/10):
These two kick things off with a technical, patient striking battle. No wild punches or dramatic KOs, but an interesting fight nonetheless. Bustamante tries to bring the fight to the ground while Suloev tries to keep it standing. Things go the a decision. Good fight.
Paulo Fihlo v. Gregory Bouchelagham (7/10):
Bouchelagham is a late fill-in and makes his Pride debut against a very difficult Paulo Fihlo. Fihlo has quite an impressive ground game, and his strength and control are impressive. Bouchelagham is game but can't do a lot against such an opponent. Fight ends in decision, although if one fighter had been more aggressive and less cautious it could have ended sooner.
Joey Villasenor v. Ryo Chonan (8/10):
The momentum swings back and forth in this mostly stand up fight. Both come out a bit tentative, throwing single shots instead of combos, but things heat up and there's some good groud work as well. Goes to a close, but in my opinion correct, decision. Entertaining.
Gegard Mousasi v. Makoto Takimoto (6/10):
One fighter throws an armbar and the other reverses, then takes his opponent's back and works from there. Eventually a strike from this position causes a swollen eye and the fight is called. Disappointing ending to an unsatisfying bout.
Marcus Aurelio v. Mitsuhiro Ishida (8/10):
This is a good strike/ground mix. Ishida uses his takedowns and ground and pound while Aurelio uses his submissions to battle it out. Decision finish.
Charles 'Crazy Horse' Bennett v. Tatsuya Kawajiri (8/10):
One fighter impressively takes down the other and uses several submission attempts before locking in a knee bar. His opponent taps not long into the first round.
Olaf Alfonso v. Hayato Sakurai (8.5/10):
Both fighters throw punches, one strong knee strike is landed. Things end before too long with a huge and painful right hook! KO finish.
Hector Lombard v. Akihiro Gono (7/10):
This fight has quite the shift in momentum. Lombard comes out strong with a flurry of punches, dropping Gono. But Gono gets up and responds with strikes of his own, albeit far more reserved and patient. Things unfortunately slow down in the second round, and this fight too ends in decision.
Jason Black v. Eoh Won Jin (8.5/10):
This 'bonus' fight was not part of the original broadcast and so has no English play-by-play. It's a good fight anyway, with strikes, near submission finishes, and painful ground and pound blows. Things end in the first round with a devastating knee to a grounded opponent.
