I, like many other fans of Pride, was all about soccer kicks and stomps. Are they insanely dangerous? Sure! But this isn’t a fucking tea party, so who cares??? It’s not like anyone’s getting stomped to death ‘Irish Wedding Toast’ style … it just means at any time the fight can be finished and the ref will have to step in.
Well, if you were looking forward to stomps and kicks to a downed opponent at Yarennoka, you are going to be disappointed. Because they’re not allowed. Boo-urns.
One thing I learned from watching Pet Semetary is that once you bury something, it doesn’t come back the same, and I guess that’s how things are with zombie Pride. At the moment it’s paltry number of matches kinda smells, and the lack of Mortal Kombat style finishing moves is pretty dissapointing too. I guess we’ll wait and see what happens though.
