PRIDE 9 "NEW BLOOD" - 6/4/00 (This is the US commercial tape version of the Pride 9 show. Good stuff, but not the best Pride show you'll ever see. This ran only a month after the GP Finals tourney, so a lot of the big names aren't here, but you still get Yvel, Belfort, and Vovchanchyn. I've got a DVD master, so VQ is perfect.)
Willie Peters vs Heath Herring Try Teligman vs Carlos Barreto (good fight) Vernon White vs Allan Goes Naoki Sano vs Carlos Newton John Renken vs Akira Shoji Ricco Rodrigues vs Gary Goodridge Daijiro Matsui vs Igor Vovchanchyn Vitor Belfort vs Gilbert Yvel (Yvel makes a less than stunning debut in Pride...)
