PRIDE 13 "COLLISION COURSE" - 3/25/01 (Ground-breaking show, for Pride anyway, that saw a huge departure in the rules on striking. Gone are almost all rules against strikes on the ground. The result is a show full of short, action-packed fights, with upsets and KOs all over the place. Good stuff if you like that sort of thing ;) This is the US comm version, so all matches are complete with English commentary. I've got a DVD master, so VQ is perfect.)
Vitor Belfort vs Bobby Southworth Guy Mezger vs Egan Inoue Heath Herring vs Sobolev Denis Dan Henderson vs Renzo Gracie (Henderson becomes the first fighter to ever KO a Gracie, hitting with a punch/forearm so fast you don't even see it until the replay.) Mark Coleman vs Allan Goes (Wild finish that see Coleman KO Goes big-time and then Goes, not realizing the fight is over, attacks Coleman after the bell!) Tadao Yasuda vs Masaaki Satake (OK, not every fight is short and exciting...) Tra Telligman vs Igor Vovchanchyn Kazushi Sakuraba vs Vanderlei Silva (Silva puts the first chink, make that the first ENORMOUS HOLE, the armor of Sakuraba as Sakuraba stupidly tries to stand up and trade with Vanderlei. Sak holds his own, even scoring a knockdown, but Silva then comes back and lays in a hellacious beating that would see Sak put out of action for months.)
