Best of Pride- Heavyweights
By Michael Rich
Ok, so this is my first article for ISC, and I am a very big Mixed Martial Arts fan. I loved Pride back in the day just as much as I love UFC today. I will be ranking the top five fighters from each weight class based on their career with the Pride organization.
Let's get started with the Heavyweights and work our way down from there.
Honorable mentions to- Jash Barnett, Mark Hunt and Heath Herring.
5. Igor "Ice Cold" Vovchanchyn
Record in Pride- 19-8-0-1
Notable wins- Gary Goodridge, Kazushi Sakuraba, Gilbert Yvel, Masaaki Satake, Valentijn Overeem
I would have possibly moved him up to fourth if it had not been for his downfall towards the end of his career. He was a great fighter for a long time while in Pride.
He had a few bad losses in his career in Pride, but he also had some impressive wins, I don't think a top five Heavyweights from Pride list is complete without Ice Cold on it.
