Pride’s season comes to a close with the annual New Years Eve show. Their were some solid fights, but the card overall was a little lackluster. Fedor defended his title agians Mark Hunt, but he wasn’t very impressive. Hunt gave him a fight and controlled Fedor most of the fight except at the very end. Gomi pounded Ishida and Hansen lost to a guy wearing clown colored stretchy pants. Josh Barnett loses a decision to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.
Gomi imposes his will and shows why he is considered by some to be the best in the lightweight division.
Aoki pulls a sick choke on Hansen. I think it is called a Gogoplata chock. Hansen is no chump, he is one of the top lightweight fighters in the world.
