TAPE 506

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 2.75 hrs (DVD)

PRIDE GP 2004 2ND ROUND - 6/20/04 (Oh yeah, here we go! With some of the scrubs eliminated, the action in Pride's heavyweight tourney heats up with this show. Some great stuff to be seen here, especially the big moves in the Randleman & Jackson fights. This is the US verion of the show, so commentary is in English. I have DVD master, VQ is EX.)
Kazushi Sakuraba vs Nino Schembri Quinton Jackson vs Ricardo Arona (Unbelievable "HOLY SHIT!" moment when Jackson lifts Arona up completely over his head and hits a *perfect* powerbomb. Seriously, Vader never hit one so beautiful. On the followthrough, Jackson headbutts Arona and KOs him if the powerbomb didn't already finish him off. I'm not exaggerating when I say this is a spot every MMA or wrestling fan should see. Too bad you can't show this to Lou "Powerbombs aren't a legit fighting move" Thesz!) Sergei Kharitonov vs Semmy Schilt (2nd Round fight) Giant Silva vs Naoya Ogawa (2nd Round) Hidehiko Yoshida vs Mark Hunt Antonio Nogueira vs Heath Herring (2nd Round) Fedor Emelianenko vs Kevin Randleman (Another unbelievable "HOLY SHIT!" moment! Randleman hits an incredible German suplex on Fedor and spikes him straight down on his head! Totally unreal! The best part? Fedor is *UNHURT* and submits Randleman shortly thereafter! The guy is not human!)
