Pride entrances were just more epic overall. When sandstorm started playing this weekend, I was hoping for Wand to come up out of the floor with lights flashing everywhere All we got a shot of Wand walking somewhere backstage, out of a tunnel. No smoke nothing Really lame..

This is an entrance:

Eh, the Japanese tend to follow every consonant with a vowel, looks pretty straightforward to me.

That looks like a wicked break though, god damn.

Oh, God no, I always hated that screaming banshee. She was awfully annoying. If you want extravagant entrances then go watch pro wrestling. Outside of entrance music, what do they really need? I don't need some Japanese dude in a diaper banging a drum. I'm watching for the fights, not to see a guy walking to the ring with a bunch of lasers and smoke everywhere. That stuff works well for pro wrestling, where gimmicks are a big part of it, but it's just so unnecessary for MMA.

Damn Hunto messed up Struve bad, posted from Struve's twitter account.



oh and crazy Pride lady is so fun but would probably only work in Japan, btw she is the voice of Nina Williams in Tekken.

I know they do, but I thought it was funny anyway. I'm at work, so can't do youtube, but Chris D'lia has a funny standup about how Japanese people pronounce things.

There's still a lot of fighters that come out of the tunnel very gimmicky, with masks or whatever. Although I usually find that stupid, I liked the Pride introductions with the big screen. I think it's fitting for such big events.
Of course, the fights are what's most important, but intro's can get you (well, me) pumped up for a fight, or even a basketball game. I'd take the Wanderlei Silva Pride entrances over the one he had this weekend anyday. I guess opinions differ on this. I really dislike pro wrestling by the way (yet respect the craft).

I don't mind the flashy entrances and there's some I really liked, but I don't think they're necessary at all. I prefer the simpler entrances like a crazyass Diego coming out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD0FnKcMSU0

or the hat stealing ones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meEckTra3C0

or just seeing a badass come out from the back: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdNdeBd5qb4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HhFSNJdVbQ

or a guy coming out to a song I really like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wThVG9FDfLA

My favorite GSP entrance. I wish he had used this song for his comeback at 154

Yeah, but he changes his song for every fight (I think I prefer his 111 entrance)

Looks like UFC 161 will have 2 nice LHW fights:
Shogun/Lil Nog rematch
Hendo/Evans

Kinda dissapointing to see Wineland get that titleshot. I hoped for Cruz to return soon of course, but apart from that, I got Wineland as an easy win for Barao. Also, I think he's not deserving. I like the new UFC rankings and Wineland being ranked as the no. 3 contender (not counting Cruz) is right with me. Faber is the no. 1 contender and I would rather see Barao/Faber II and Wineland/Jorgensen II. All are coming of wins so that's good and it's not like we've seen guys get titleshots after just one fight (Machida right?). They should switch it up.

Silva/Weidman I like. Let's get it over with. I say Silva doesn't play around with him and finishes him within a minute.

Faber can't have every fight be for a title if he keeps losing. I have no problem with him waiting. He's had plenty of chances

I'd just have JDS wait then. Reem's camp says he's sidelined for 4-5 weeks and will be ready to go by July. Their fight was scheduled for the end of May. I'd rather wait a month and a half and have them fight than settle for something else. We've been waiting a long time to see those two go at it.
