Pride 13 Review and Pictorial

Just 3 days ago Dream Stage Entertainment held it's 13th Pride, Pride FC - Collision Course. This card included some great matchups, including Dan Henderson vs Renzo Gracie, Mark Coleman vs Allan Goes, and Vanderlei Silva vs Kazushi Sakuraba. Ken Shamrock was scheduled to face Igor Vovchanchin, but Tra Telligman took Shamrock's place on short notice as Shamrock injured his neck. Interestingly, Telligman's match with Vovchanchin turned out to be one of the most interesting one of the night.

Pride 13 brought a slew of rule changes to the table, designed to end a "deadlock" situation and make the fights more exciting. They included more faster warnings for stalling, and also they allowed kicks and knees to a fighter on all fours. Previously these techniques were not allowed.

Pride 13 contained 8 matches - 2 submission, 4 KOs or TKOs, and 2 judges decisions. The only fights that went past the first round were the 2 decisions.

Was it the rules that made this Pride so exciting? Was it the fighters? Read our Pride 13 Review and Pictorial to find out for yourself.

Upcoming Event - World Extreme Fighting - Redemption In The Valley

Event: Redemption in the Valley
WV Promoter: Ron Tucker
Event Sponsor: WEF, Jamie Levine, President
Event Date: Saturday, April 21, 2001
Place: Wheeling Civic Center, Wheeling, WV
Time: Fights start at 7 p.m.
Tickets go on sale March 28 at www.ticketmaster.com
Web Site: www.worldextremefighting.cc

Mixed Martial Arts Fighting Comes To West Virginia
Mixed Martial Arts cage fights will rock the Wheeling Civic Center, Wheeling, WV on April 21. Fourteen matches will take place in a steel cage. Internationally acclaimed no-holds-barred champion, Dan "The Beast" Severn will face-off against Jonathan "Lock 'n Load" Wiezorek as the main event. Pittsburgh native and cage-fight veteran Eric Hibler will take up the challenge against Richard "Mad Man" Crunkilton in a featured bout, and the night's super fight will feature Din "The Dominator" Thomas.

There are few rules and lots of action inside the cage. Fighters may use any form of hand-to-hand combat which may include boxing techniques, kicking, elbow and knee strikes and wrestling techniques. Matches are won by knockout, by one of the fighters giving up (signaled by the contestant "tapping out", that is tapping on the mat), by the referee stopping the match, or by the judges' decision.

Fights are generally three four-minute rounds. Title fights are longer. The few rules that are part of the contest prohibit the fighters from eye gouging, groin strikes and biting.

Even though it is easy to follow the action, the fighters are extremely skilled and do whatever it takes to win or just survive.

Area contestants include the Pittsburgh, PA Practical Fighting Concepts camp: Eric Hibler, Andy Cooper, Cris Custer, Don Kaecher and Bill Vucick. Other area contestants include West Liberty's own Brandon Lee Hinkle challenging Rich Franklin, the IFC Heavyweight Champion and WEF veteran with a 6-0 record all by kick-to-the-head knockouts. Todd Carney, Moundsville, will take on Charles "Crazyhorse" Bennett of Florida in a much-anticipated rematch. Ron Tucker of Moundsville is matched against Kevin "Hulk" Hogan, and Weirton's Jeff Wales Vs Josh Raferty. Gwen Wood, 7-time WV Toughwoman contest champ, will also step into the cage.

Card is subject to change.

Corrections and Copyright Notice

We recently made two errors in our daily news section. First, we reported incorrectly a fight from the recent 2 Hot 2 Handle show in Holland. We stated that Fatih Kocamis defeated Ed de Kruiyf by decision in a Muay Thai bout. In fact, Fatih Kocamis defeated Ed de Kruiyf 1R 7:00 by KO in a Mixed Martial Arts bout. We apologize to to Fatih Kocamis and Ed de Kruiyf for this error, it occured between the telephone and the keyboard.

Second, we mispelled Igor Vovchanchin's name in our Pride 13 results (we spelled it "Vovchacnhin"). We apologize to Igor Vovchanchin for this error.

We have corrected both errors.

It is also brought to our attention that at least one other Mixed Martial Arts website is cutting and pasting our information verbatim, and posting it into their daily news section as contributed by a member of their staff. We were alerted to this because their "contributions" contains the exact errors as we noted above, while another source was credited. We realize this mistake was not done with malicious intent, and have notified the webmaster of the offending website.

Rage in the Cage 26 Results - Dewees Defeats Leininger by Decision

Pride 13 and Rage in the Cage 26 took place on the same eventing. Pride results can be found here. Brausa Academy 18 year old sensation Edwin Dewees earned a hard fought decision over highly respected MMA veteran Christophe Leininger in the Main Event.

UFC 31 Rumors

UFC 31, set for May 4, 2001, only has one fight officially announced - Pedro Rizzo vs Randy Couture. However, we've heard a few rumors from reliable and anonymous sources. For the record, this information did not come from anyone employed or associated with Zuffa, Fertita Enterprises, or the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Mark "The Titan" Kerr will likely be returning to the Octagon May 4 against Pete "El Duro" Williams. Pete Williams recently competed in King of the Cage 6 and King of the Cage 7, where he KOd Roger Neff and forced Rick Mathis to throw in the towel between rounds. He's also trimmed down quite a bit from his UFC days, and those who remember the "not so ripped" Pete Williams who fought Mark Coleman in the UFC will see quite a different body shape. Mark Kerr recently fought in DSE's Pride 12 (December 2000), where he lost a decision to Igor Vovchanchin in overtime. Many people feel that Kerr should have been given the decision before the overtime, which would have ended the match before the overtime.

Pat Miletich will likely defend his lightweight crown against Carlos Newton. Newton is a submissions wizard and will give Miletich all he can handle on the ground, provided it goes there. Newton may be in trouble with Miletich's standup abilities, as it seems a common Miletich Martial Arts tactic to keep the fight standing when your opponant wants to take it to the ground (see Uno vs Pulver, Miletich vs Pedineiras).

Shonie Carter, who is 2-0 in the UFC, will likely be facing Matt Serra.

The above three fights are very close to being "official." The following fights have been discussed, but are not as likely as the above fights.

Chuck Liddell may face Kevin Randleman in the middleweight division. This will be Randleman's first time as a middleweight, which is his more natural fighting weight. Liddell is on a roll, taking out wrestlers Paul Jones and ADCC champ Jeff Monsen in his 2 most recent UFC appearances.

Ricardo Almeida (Renzo Gracie JJ) may face Randy Couture training partner Matt Lindland. Almeida competed and won in Pride 12, while Lindland compted and won in UFC 29.
