Pride 33: The Second Coming took place in Vegas! Cant believe its been that long. This goes down as my alltime favorite MMA event in history. The card featured 9 total past or present champions and only 1 fight made it to the judges. Hendo shocked the world by taking Wand's 205 belt and became a champion in 2 weight classes simultaneously. Shogun knocked out Overeem for the 2nd time, and Gomi tapped to Diaz in a classic! I challenge anyone to provide a UFC or event with such luster, prestige, and reputation!!

What does everyone remember of this event? What were the reactions after the shocking finale? Overall consensus and relevancy? I post this in tribute to what history unfolded that night, and to the memory of PRIDE FC...

It's all a blur to me anymore to be honest...it seems like all that was a decade ago.

i think i remember the long ass intermission and all the whiteboys on this board cracking on Takada for trying to speak English. and then old CB giving them a lecture why they shouldn't make fun of him.

It was a great event. I'd be pressed to call it the best of all time.

Kudos for remembering that (ridiculous intermission) but it happened at The Real Deal (Fedor vs Coleman II)
