Pride FC Shirt
Finally, I found the Pride FC Shirt! Pride FC was the first platform to launch MMA’s popularity. Founded by Nobuyuki Sakakibara and Nobuhiko Takada in 1997 Pride FC made Japan the mecca of MMA where the world’s best athletes flocked to compete. The original intention of Pride FC was to build a platform where Takada could fight the legendary Rickson Gracie. The show found its popularity and grew to be a national sensation.
One of the reasons behind it’s popularity was that it was a new promotion that broke away from the traditional platforms in Karate and Sumo. Additionally, each event was managed and produced to be like a show instead of a competition. With exciting costumes, interesting fighters, and the enthusiastic announcing voice of Lenne Hardt. Pride FC brought early MMA fans unforgettable experiences and fight heroes.
