List of fighters that pride 2.0 can realistically and potentially grab

Post by Longtime Fan on Sun Sep 20, 2015 1:41 am

Contrary to what a Zuffa zombie will have you believe, there actually are more than a few name fighters that can be signed if the money is right

You build it and they will come.

You sign marquee names, talent, freakshows, and Olympic medal winners

You generate ratings and a strong following and please the fans at the same time. We know this formula works. The ones who don't know are these new generations of fans because they didn't come from this type of mma landscape.


imagine the alliance of pride 2.0/bellator/glory combined their power and  form a lineup that included (assuming some of these fighters can be talked out of retirement, I listed some Improbable ones, but let's not forget, anyone can make a comeback in mma at a later age, we see it happening now in the UFC hw division. Specially if these fighters who have taken time off are fully healed of their past injuries):

-Fedor
-GSP
-Brock Lesnar (one fight deal, freak show fight)
-nick Diaz
-Tim Sylvia (has name power)
-Brendan Shaub
-Roman Zentsov
-Pudz
-Blagoi Ivanov
-Artem Levin
-ghokan saki
-matt mitrione (if he leaves UFC)
-Randy Couture (only for legends' matches)
-sergei kharitanov
-Hershell Walker
-Shaquille O Neal (one fight deal, freak show fight)
-Cheik Kongo
-Minakov
-Pat Barry
-bj penn
-kimbo slice
-Roger Gracie
-Kyra Gracie
-Ralek Gracie
-Shinya Aoki
-Wanderlei Silva
-Forrest Griffin
-Marcelo Garcia
-Jason Mayhem Miller
-Joachim hellboy Hansen
-Evangelista cyborg santos
-White Wolf  Marius zaromski
-Shane Carwin (if he can get lured out of retirement)
-kasushi Sakuraba (only for legends' matches)
-Ricardo Arona
-Satoshi Ishii
-both shamrocks
-Phil Davis
-king mo
-Tito Ortiz
-josh koschek
-josh punk thompson
And all the other bellator names
-Dean Lister
-Dion Staring
-Paul Buentello
-Sokodju
-Denis Goltsov
-Cung Le
-Brett Rogers
-Derrick Mehmen
-Marcin Tybura
-Melvin Manhoef
-Seth Peutz
-Gerônimo Dos Santos
-Paulo Filho
-Cyrille Diabaté
-Akihiro Gono
-Minowaman
-Fujita
-Fernando Rodrigues Jr
-Oli Thompson
-Chris Barnett
-Matyushenko
-Rasul Mirzaev


See, when you look at it in list form and all those potential fighters included , it starts to look possible. A pride 2.0 takeover.

A lot of great fighters could re-build JMMA. Great start with Fedor and the Bellator partnership. Addition of some M-1 fighters would be great as well.

Hopefully the reign of the over-saturated Reebok version of MMA is over and we are back to real MMA with PRIDE 2.0 and Bellator.

Good names nothing=pride fc , I'll add them.

Yes of course we are just dreaming here , many of these fighters might not come out of retirement per se, but might just lend their likenesses in order to generate interest and viewership to a budding new org.

Seeing that they are experimenting with holding kickboxing matches alongside with mma matches , then it isn't outside the realm of possibility for them to also make strictly grappling matches as well a la metamoris. Marcelo Garcia of courted might want to be a part of it. Who doesn't want the money?

As far as Shaub goes , he is still young and I can definitely see him joining another org once he is cleared from the UFC. He is young still and holds a grudge against Dana and the UFC IMO.

Uuhhh...Why is Shinya Aoki on the list? He is a current champion over at ONE. Might as well put Ben Askren on Bibiano Fernandes on the list too, while you're at it.

Yup, Bellator, Coker, and PRIDE 2.0 look like they could deliver what this site has been hoping for.

He is in ONE but he was on last two INOKI NYE's so I think he can do fight or two outside of ONE from time to time!

It will be in a ring well that what has been said ( no I'm getting into a cage vs ring debate yes I like the ring some Like the cage ) yes I agree they should build up new stars though like everyone I wonder who his first opponent will be i want to see him vs Sergei kharitonov . Hope fully this is the new age and the end of the zuffa reign .

Yea I agree , I'd love to see new blood enter the new pride, let them develop inhouse talent. But to be able to lift off smoothly they need to get atleast some marquee names in there , and it would be smart to get the ones that have fought before on spike tv seeing that spike tv will be their broadcast channel/home.

Imagine Forrest griffin comes out of retirement (I don't even care for him but he has a name) and fought for predator jejeje I imagine it would bring viewers.
