PRIDE GP 2004 FINALS - 8/15/04 (Here we have the final two rounds of Pride's awesome heavyweight tournament. Some fun stuff here. I've got a master of the US comm. version, so all commentary is in English and VQ is EX.)
Murilo Bustamanate vs Kazuhiro Nakamura Antonio Nogueira vs Sergei Kharitonov (Semis) Fedor Emeliankenko vs Naoya Ogawa (Semis) Kevin Randleman vs Ron Waterman Mirko Filipovic vs Alexander Emelianenko (yet another big KO for Cro Cop) Vanderlei Silva vs Yuki Kondo (You get some status messages from the satellite on this match only. Kinda annoying but doesn't really make you miss anything.) Fedor Emelianenko vs Antonio Nogueira (Finals - What had all the beginnings of another classic between these two ends in a terrible finish with Fedor getting cut by an accidental headbutt, with the fight being stopped as a no-contest. The cut on Fedor's face is a bad one, very deep and very wide. So it was a good stoppage, but the worst possible finish for a fight of this magnitude. Hopefully we'll get the rematch very soon!)
