The organization is no more but PRIDE fighters live on in the UFC.

Stars like Chuck Liddell, Anderson Silva, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria, Dan Henderson, Mirko Cro Cop, Wanderlei Silva, Fedor Emelianenko, Josh Barnett, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Mark Coleman, Frank Trigg, Hidehiko Yoshida, Akihro Gono and Takanoro Gomi all competed in the former Japanese mixed martial arts organization during its ten years of operation from 1997-2007.

Now Spike TV will let fight fans relive the best of more than 60 Pride events when host Kenda Perez premieres “The Best of Pride Fighting Championships,” on January 11, 2010 at 11pm ET/PT.

“As the destination for the best mixed martial arts on television, Spike TV is always looking for ways to give fight fans more of the incredible action and competition they crave,” said Spike TV president Kevin Kay, of the show that will join such UFC programs as “The Ultimate Fighter,” “UFC Fight Night,” “UFC Unleashed,” “Ultimate Knockouts,” “UFC Countdown,” “UFC All Access,” and “UFC Primetime.”
