"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."
Not too bad

"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."
