Pride was a major MMA organization based in Japan that ran from 1997 to 2007. During those 10 years they had 68 events, six champions—five different champions—and seven tournaments.
Pride was different from most modern MMA organizations because they allowed kicks and knees to grounded opponents. This made fighters such as Shogun Rua especially dangerous.
Other top fighters in Pride were generally knockout artists. There were a few guys who were submission based, but Pride's biggest stars were the ones that could score vicious knockouts.
