TAPE 5

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 110 min (DVD)

PRIDE 5 - 4/29/99 (This is the US commercial tape version of this show, with English commentary. All the matches are complete. Good show with several good matches. I have a master so VQ is EX.)
Egan Inoue vs Minoru Toyanaga Satoshi Honma vs Francisco Bueno Igor Vovchanchyn vs Akira Shoji Enson Inoue vs Soichi Nishida Rickson Gracie/Royler Gracie sparring session Kazushi Sakuraba vs Vitor Belfort (Sakuraba makes his Pride debut and TOTALLY dominates Belfort, who breaks his hand during an early flurry. After that, it's all Sak as Belfort refuses to engage and just flops to his back repeatedly. Sak lights up Belfort's legs with kicks, turning his left thigh an ugly purple color and shows off several innovative techniques as well. Great stuff.) Nobuhiko Takada vs Mark Coleman (This is supposedly a work, but if it is, it's a VERY well-done work. Good match.)
