PRIDE 20 Developing Strong!
Three more matches official

By Eduardo Alonso

      As the 28th of April approaches, the PRIDE 20 card continues to look better and better. FCF was told today about 3 new matches for the card. As has been already mentioned on the Internet, Chute Boxe fighter and PRIDE veteran Murilo "Ninja" Rua will be facing none other than Brazilian Top Team member and 3-time BJJ World Champion Mario Sperry! This will mark the first meeting of two big name fighters from both camps in the ring, and could build an even bigger rivalry between the two camps! This fight was confirmed by both camps and will be announced by PRIDE at any moment! As if Wanderlei Silva vs. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic, Gilbert Yvel vs. Sam Greco and "Ninja" vs. Sperry wouldn’t be enough for a great card, FCF learned today about two new matches that are confimed for PRIDE 20!
      In one of the matches, Rogerio "Minotoro" Nogueira, Brazilian Top Team member and "Minotauro’s" twin brother, will be making his PRIDE debut against seasoned veteran Gary "Big Daddy" Goodridge! Goodridge was also Rodrigo Nogueira’s first PRIDE opponent, and now he’ll welcome Minotauro’s twin brother to PRIDE. In addition, two PRIDE veterans will be returning to the ring on April 28th… Ricardo Arona will face off against Dan Henderson in a fight that promises to have big implications in the run for Wanderlei Silva’s middleweight title. FCF was told today that all 3 fights are a done deal. Keep checking FCF for the latest PRIDE and fighting news!
