Best Of Pride Videos: Shinya Aoki and Takanori Gomi Shine In These Classic Bouts

Fuel TV is releasing some nifty videos from their Best of Pride series. The video above is Shinya Aoki vs Clay French from Pride Bushido 13 on November 5, 2006. Here's Fuel TV's description of the action:

Japanese submission wizard Shinya Aoki tested his skills against American wrestler Clay French at Pride Bushido 13. French spent the majority of the bout valiantly defending against the dazzling jiu-jitsu of Aoki, but ultimately succumbed to an out-of-nowhere flying triangle choke that has to be seen to be believed.

After the jump is a video of Takanori Gomi in some vintage Fireball Kid action.

The above is from Takanori Gomi vs. Jadson Costa at Pride Bushido 2 on February 15, 2004. Here's Fuel TV's description of the action:

Takanori "The Fireball Kid" Gomi got back to his winning ways against Chute Boxe fighter Jadyson Costa at Pride: Bushido 2. Gomi unleashed a barrage of fierce ground and pound that stopped Costa in his tracks and put Gomi back on track.
