PRIDE FC has returned to DVD with last week's release of PRIDE: Shockwave 2006.
The staff at MMAmania.com spoke directly with the distributor who has confirmed that a total of 12 PRIDE FC DVD’s will be released over the next 18 months. In addition to Shockwave 2006, PRIDE 33: Second Coming is scheduled for release on June 9.
Zuffa — the parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship — purchased the Japanese mixed martial arts promotion (and its biggest rival) early last year. With no television deal and most of its top fighters signing UFC contracts, the entity known as PRIDE became no more.
Now fans will have an opportunity to relive the glory days on DVD. MMAmania.com will preview each disc as its title and release date become available.
In the meantime, here’s a quick peek at PRIDE Shockwave 2006:
