As expected of Pride a lot of great action along with a few explosive knockouts, such as Randleman/Jackson. A few vets show their wear & tear. Most notably Mark Kerr. His physique has really changed, and for the worst. Cro Cop is quite a force. All in all a great set to compliment your Pride DVD collection.
Pride Dominates UFC Anyday

"I have ordered Pride videos in the past, including the one above. Any true MMA fan will appreciate the high quality and stunning level of competition formerly available in the Pride Organization. All one really has to ponder is the FACT that Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Anderson "The Spider" Silva and Antonio Minataro Nogueira are three former Pride fighters who are current UFC champions! Pride Fighting Legacy Volume 5 demonstrates why. Pride was far better then than the UFC is today."

"If you like mixed martial arts you will like these box sets. Even if you don't like half of the fights, for the money you're paying for these sets its still worth it.
Why wouldn't you want to see Anderson Silva in his pre-UFC days? Rampage Jackson vs. Kevin Randleman? Come on, who wouldn't want to see that fight? Don't forget about Dan Henderson, Mirko Cro Cop, and Heath Herring, just to name a few of the fighters featured in this set. And you get to see Fedor fight the current UFC Heavyweight champ Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (Pride 25). That's probably worth the $25 bucks, alone.
Pride FC is no more. Unfortunately, its unique rules went with it. These disks are the last remnant of knees, soccer kicks, and stomps to the head of a downed opponent in MMA. The ring isn't as good as the cage for MMA, and not being able to elbow your opponent in the face sometimes makes for slow ground matches, but for the most part its refreshing to see MMA fights with slightly different rules than the current universally adopted UFC rules.
These collections might be a little too much for the casual MMA fan, but if you want to research current fighters, learn more about MMA, or simply want to see a lot of good fights, buy these disks."
