PRIDE 11 "BATTLE OF THE RISING SUN" - 10/31/00 (This is a GREAT show, one of the better Pride shows I've seen. But don't believe the box when it promises "140" minutes of action - the show is only 92 minutes. Boo! I've got a master, so VQ is perfect.)
Tom Erikson vs Heath Herring (Terrific fight; Erikson gets his first loss) Gilbert Yvel vs Vanderlei Silva (Fight gets stopped about 20 seconds in when Silva DRILLS Yvel with a groin shot.) Gary Goodridge vs Yoshiaki Yatsu (Yatsu takes a POUNDING, then manages to clamp on a pro-style BS leglock. Hey Yatsu, it's a shoot, not an AJ match!) Alexander Otsuka vs Mike Rourke Akira Shoji vs Herman Renting Nobuhiko Takada vs Igor Vovchanchyn (Really good fight that features Takada lighting up Igor's legs, leaving welts and bruises all up and down both legs.) Naoya Ogawa vs Masaaki Satake (Ogawa takes a pounding) Kazushi Sakuraba vs Shannon Ritch
