TAPE 161

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 2.75 hrs (DVD)

PRIDE 24 - 12/23/02 (Pretty solid show for Pride, highlighted by the really good Henderson vs Nogueira fight. Unfortunately, they cut 2 fights from the show, so only 6 shown here. This is the US PPV version of the show, so all commentary is in English. I have a DVD master so quality is EX.)
Guy Mezger vs Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Ron Waterman vs Valentijn Overeem (Waterman looks like Scott Steiner, only flexible) Rodrigo Gracie vs Yuki Sasaki (Hey, a Gracie that's more than 120 lbs AND has a likable personality! Is that even possible? No surprise, he's from Renzo's side...) Alistair Overeem vs Volk Ataev (Ataev lands an AWESOME spinning back kick) Kevin Randleman vs Murilo Ninja Antonio Rodrigo Nogueia vs Dan Henderson (The announcers act like Henderson has no shot and then are "stunned" when he lasts more than 2 minutes. HELLO! Henderson is the only guy who has BEATEN Nogueira priot to this match. Gimme a break!)
