5.0 out of 5 stars Best bang for your buck March 20 2007
If your a fan of UFC you'll love pride. This is a great deal, you really can't go wrong. I've been watching UFC much longer than pride yet my pride collection vastly exceeds my UFC collection.

Most North American fans will recognize such fighters as Wanderlei Silva, Heath Herring, Carlos Newton, Ricco Rodriguez, Guy Mezger, Renzo Gracie, Gary Goodrige, Mark Coleman, Vitor Belfort, Chuck Liddell, Quinton Jackson, Don Frey and plenty of othhers for the hardcore viewers.

So I'm basically saying what the first review said and he's right on all counts.

For avid MMA fans I also recommend any Bushido, Shockwave or Grand Prix sets.... enjoy!

Let me tell you right off the bat : you'll pay a very low price for that, and you'll get so much! This is the best deal you can get on MMA DVD's. The balance of price versus quality is the very best I've seen while acquiring my MMA collection. This features 5 Pride Events, Pride 112 to 16 respectively. Although there are a couple of snoozefest fights, you'll also witness some extremely amazing ones.

I've started watching UFC about three or four years ago, and I've watched Pride for about one year only...but my Pride FC collection is already bigger than my UFC collection.

You'll discover some of the world's greatest fighters, who actually really deserve to be called Mixed Martial Artists : Wanderlei Silva, a very dangerous looking man, known for his aggression via huge haymakers in the ring, but for his sportsmanship outside the ring ; the Nogueira brothers, two wizards of Brazilian Ju Jitsu and ground game ; Kazushi Sakuraba, the most entertaining fighter I've ever seen, also known for pulling off wins over the legendary Gracie family ; Igor Vovchanchyn, a very short man, who looks a little overweight, who will make you jump off your seat with his explosiveness...there are many others.

There is a total of 41 fights in this DVD set, and it features several legendary KO's (Chuck Liddell vs. Guy Mezger, Mark Coleman vs. Allan Goes, Wanderlei Silva vs. Kazushi Sakuraba come to my mind) and amazing submissions (Nogueira vs. Goodridge, Nogueira vs. Coleman).

Also, for current UFC fans, the transition is not too hard to make, because you'll see a lot of guys that fight or have fought in the UFC : Vitor Belfort, Chuck Liddell, Mark Coleman, Don Frye, Gary Goodridge, Ricco Rodriguez, Guy Mezger, Carlos Newton, among others.

This is a great deal on a buch of great fights. Anyone who calls himself a MMA fan has to get this...but I must warn you : you'll instantly be addicted to Pride FC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enter the Minotauro and lots more! April 20 2006
By Ghostman - Published on Amazon.com
I haven't seen Legacy volumes 1 and 2, but I heard mixed reviews from fans. A lot of viewers were complaining that it was too boring. I'm a hardcore fan and all, but even I draw the line at some point. Well anyway, I was at Best Buy recently, and I saw the third volume for 20 bucks. I thought, "What the heck," and picked it up.

I was surprised I actually enjoyed it. There are some dull matches and some really boring matches. Remember that at this time, Pride had three 10 minute rounds. So if the first round sucks, you have to endure another excruciating 20 minutes of "laying and praying" or "locking and bolting." However, the lame matches gradually dwindle and from Pride 14, it gets really exciting.

Here are some matches you might be interested in from each disc. There are more matches, but I'm only going to mention the ones that stand out or might interest you. Don't worry. There are no spoilers, although I do comment on each match.

DISC 1: PRIDE 12

Wanderlei Silva vs Dan Henderson - Wanderlei Silva is always exciting to watch.

Heath Herring vs Enson Inoue - This fight has you on the edge.

Kazushi Sakuraba vs Ryan Gracie - After Sakuraba disgraces the previously dominant Gracie family, Ryan steps up to avenge his fallen brothers.

DISC 2 - PRIDE 13

Wanderlei Silva vs Kazushi Sakuraba - Two of the best fighters collide and the outcome rocks the world of MMA.

Heath Herring vs Denis Sobolev - This is Herring's chance to show that he's a force in Pride, but the creepy-looking Sobolev begs to differ.

Vitor Belfort vs Bobby Southworth - Enter Vitor Belfort from the UFC and Bobby Southworth, the Omarosa of The Ultimate Fighter Season 1.

Tadao Yasuda vs Masaaki Satake - The referee who officiated this match should be fired. Otherwise if you're a lighthearted MMA fan, you'll find this match ridiculously entertaining.

DISC 3 - PRIDE 14

Wanderlei Silva vs Shungo Oyama - The same referee who poorly officiated Yasuda vs Satake, is back, and again, he screws this match up.

Chuck Liddel vs Guy Mezger - The "Iceman" Chuck Liddell invades Pride to take on its best light heavyweight Guy Mezger. A classic UFC vs Pride matchup.

Vitor Belfort vs Heath Herring - Sounds great on paper, doesn't it? Controversial conclusion that even stuns the commentators.

DISC 4: PRIDE 15

Quinton Rampage Jackson vs Kazushi Sakuraba - Jackson wreaks havoc and awe-inspires the audience.

Heath Herring vs Mark Kerr - Kerr sets to capture his former glory, but Herring is no pushover.

Antonio Nogueira vs Gary Goodridge - Enter the Minotauro...

DISC 5: PRIDE 16

Murilo "Ninja" Rua vs Daijiro Matsui - Enter Murilo Ninja. A battle of wits and stamina.

Antonio Nogueira vs Mark Coleman - The MMA world will never be the same again.

Don Frye vs Gilbert Yvel - "The Predator" Don Frye returns, but the desperate Yvel wants to steal his thunder... even if it means cheating.

Finally... this cheap DVD set will have you glued to the TV screen for days. Although the extra features are nonexistent, considering its price, this is a steal. If you want to see the rise of today's cream of the crop Pride fighters like Antonio "Minotauro" Rodrigo Nogueira and Wanderlei "Axe Murderer" Silva, all the while see some legends like Kazushi "Happy Face" Sakuraba and "The Predator" Don Frye, Legacy Volume 3 is your stairway to heaven.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 DVD set of Pride Fighting Champions 12 - 16 Jan. 16 2013
By BigStory - Published on Amazon.com

This is a 5-disc collection containing Pride 12-16(2000-2001). These were the years when Pride FC ruled the roost and was the premier MMA organization in the world. Fighters such as "The Axe Murderer", "Rampage", and "Minotauro" made their mark and became household names in Japan(and around the world).

The interesting thing about this era in Pride was that the rules weren't totally set yet and was constantly being tweaked from one event to the next(one example being knees to a grounded opponent). Of course Pride is legendary for allowing stomps and soccer kicks to a grounded opponent.

The fans in Japan are quiet during a fight and show knowledge of MMA techniques(they will patiently watch a grappling sequence and applaud if a fighter is able to gain favorable positioning). I love the respect they show to fighters. Each disc in this collection contains basically the same special features(photo gallery/highlights/History of Pride).
