TAPE 502

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 2.75 hrs (DVD)

PRIDE BUSHIDO 3 - 5/23/04 (Bit of a disappointing show, but still one with some fun action on it. Not too many big names here outside of CroCop. I've got a master, so VQ is EX.)
Shamoji Fujii vs Kim Jin Oh Emelianenko Alexandre vs Matt Boki Kazuo Misaki vs Jorge Patino Carlos Newton vs Daiju Takase Akira Shoji vs Tamakairiki Kazuhiro Nakamura vs Chalid Die Faust Mirko CroCop Filipovic vs Hiromitsu Kanehara (CroCop makes his return to Pride after his devastating loss to Kevin Randleman in the GP. CroCop looks dominant but utterly unimpressive as he fails to put away the outmatched Kanehara. Over and over, he appears to be in a position to go for the kill but backs off, either because he's tentative or out of gas, I don't know. Not a great win by any means.) Ryo Chonan vs Ricardo Almeida Takanori Gomi vs Ralph Gracie (Don't blink! Gracie gets KO'ed in 6 seconds!) Ikuhisa Minowa vs Ryan Gracie
