by Thomas on Jan. 28, 2002 @ 2:53 p.m. PST

Pride FC pits the top fighters in the world from several different combative sports including wrestling, karate, judo, kick-boxing, and others into one ring under the same rules. The philosophy of Pride, known as ValeTudo, is the acceptance of any technique of any school of combat. Pride is the survival of the strongest. Not the strongest in a specific genre, but the strongest of all combative sports, period. Release date: Q3-2002.
