Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Honor and art combine to create the fighting sensation that has swept Japan as the ferocious competition that brings together multiple fighting styles arrives on U.S. shores with an eight-match fight card that truly delivers. Years in the making and unforgiving in execution, this middleweight Pride Fighting championship was captured live at Saitama Super Arena in Japan and pits a variety of fighting styles against one and other to find out once and for all which is the true style of champions. As the second round of the exclusive, three-show tournament gets underway, eight middleweight fighters from varying backgrounds step into the ring to prove their worth and defend their chosen method of combat. Matches include Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic versus Ibragim Magomedov, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira versus Pawel Nastula, Sergei Kharitonov versus Pedro "The Rock" Rizzo, and Kiyoshi Tamura versus Makoto Takimoto.
