Movie Reviews

Wanderlei Vs Mirko - nuff' said
D. Boyette | Georgia, USA | 06/21/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I would give this a 5 if it had more fights. If you are a fan of mma, it's a must have. Cro-cop and Silva; Ninja and Sperry; Henderson and Arona. Great dvd with lots of top fighters fighting other top fighters. It also has Quinton Jackson who is almost always exciting. Great dvd."
Pride Fighting Championships 20: Armed and Ready
Matt | NJ | 09/15/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The DVD begins with Bas Rutton and Steven Quadros doing a Men-In-Black type skit. They introduce the fights on the card this way.

Bob Sapp v. Norihishi Yamamoto:
This is Bob Sapp's MMA and Pride debut. He is cornered by Maurice Smith and Randy Couture, so his training is not in question. This one ends in only a few minutes.

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson v. Masaaki Satake:
Jackson, as you probably know, has the best slams in Pride, bar none. He gets another great one in this fight and follows-up with knees to a downed Masaaki. Masaaki has to work diligently simply to achieve full guard on the bottom. This is a one-sided fight that ends in exciting fashion. As a bonus on this DVD, you can listen to Rampage provide his own commentary on the fight, which is pretty funny.

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira v. Yusuke Imamura:
This is Nogueira's Pride debut. He is the twin brother of the current Pride heavyweight champion, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. The talk is that he is just as good as his brother... If this fight is any indicator, then he just might be.

Dan Henderson v. Ricardo Arona:
I was pretty excited to see this one. Both fighters are explosive. We get an exciting back-and-forth in this fight, until one of them is able to get an edge in the 3rd. This fight goes to a close decision.

Murilo Ninja Rua v. Mario Sperry:
Two great Brazilians from separate teams will do battle. They trade in mid-ring and it is Rua who bests Sperry. Rua is all over Sperry early on, but Sperry reverses everything with a takedown. This is a very close, very good fight, testing the mettle of both warriors. Awesome fight!

Alexander Otsuka v. Sanae Kikuta:
I don't really know too much about either of these fighters. The match is fairly boring- a very slow-paced ground game. One of the fighters isn't really even competitive.

Wanderlei Silva v. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic:
The rules of Pride Fighting are temporarily put on hold, as these two amazing fighters meet and compete under the rules of K-1, from which Cro Cop comes. Cro Cop lands a huge body kick, making an early statement, but Silva surprises everyone with his performance at this event. Everyobe figured that if Sakuraba could drop Silva, then Cro Cop would surely annihilate... The fight is very tense, as either man can potentially end it at any second. This makes for an awesome atmosphere around the fight. I would like to go more indepth, but you've simply got to see this one. There are no judges in this fight, so if it goes the distance, it will be ruled a draw. It's a part of MMA history, still very much relevant in Pride right now, especially in light of the recent tournament."

"This DVD has some extremely exciting fights... the biggest being the main event. Once again, this is a moment in MMA history that is not only worth seeing, but worth having in your collection. This fight not only looks great on paper, but delivers in spades. The staredown between these two truly sets the stage for the epic battle. It truly is a must own for this fight alone... but like I already said, there are several other phenomenal fights on the card as well.

Highly recommended!"
Awesome Show
