This Friday, January 15th Spike TV will be airing some of the best bouts from the former Pride Fighting Championships. You can expect to see vintage Wanderlei, Liddell, Rampage, Cro Cop, and so much more. Somewhere there is a list of the greatest MMA fights of all time, and home to many of the top tier of that list are the fights from Pride.
Check out this teaser below of a vintage Chuck Liddell facing off against a young and much skinnier than today’s version, Alistair Overeem. Take notice of Overeems’ vicious Muay Thai game, he even rocks Liddell a few times – I can not wait for Overeem to return to MMA once he has had his fill of K-1.
“The Best of Pride” premieres on Spike, Friday January 15th at 10:00 pm EST
