Shoot the Shooto 2011 Preview: Mirko Crocop vs Wanderlei Silva at Pride 20

For today's preview, I've decided to look at a fight that I feel is often overlooked and that is Mirko Crocop and Wanderlei Silva's first fight under special Pride vs K-1 rules back at Pride 20. At the time, Crocop had only 3 MMA fights, with one of them being against Nobuhiko Takada under the same special rules that this fight was to take place under. Wanderlei was 19-3 at the time and undefeated in Pride, proving to be a wild wrecking machine. The train of thought going in was that if Wanderlei got reckless with his striking at any point, the 1999 K-1 World Grand Prix finalist would put him away with relative ease. However, that did not happen and Wanderlei managed to hold his own, lasting a full 15 minutes with the K-1 star and having the fight result in a draw. The two later faced off in the monumental Pride 2006 OWGP. Also at the event was an MMA fight between Quinton Rampage Jackson and 1994 K-1 WGP finalist Masaaki Satake, who had an MMA record of 1-6-1 going into the fight.

Shoot the Shooto 2011 Preview: Dynamite!!! 2008

K-1's Dynamite!!! events often feature fights that pit MMA fighters against K-1 fighters in either discipline, often with expected results. However, Dynamite!!! 2008 resulted in a clean sweep for MMA, with Alistar Overeem's huge upset over Badr Hari, Tatsuya Kawajiri and Gegard Mousasi taking wins over fading Japanese kickboxing legends Kozo Takeda and Musashi, respectively, and Minowaman's quick win over Errol Zimmerman. The night also held three other bouts featuring fighters who have made a name for themselves in kickboxing and MMA, with Melvin Manhoef battling Mark Hunt, Mirko Crocop taking on Hong-man Choi and Semmy Schilt facing Mighty Mo, all under MMA rules.

Watch StillWill's K-1: Imagine and Pick Your Jaw Up off the Ground @StillW1ll

Look, there are a lot of people out there who make fine highlight reels in the realm of combat sports, people who do their best to put together cohesive and exciting highlight packages of their favorite fighters, promotions, sports or anything else they can think of. There reaches a certain point where you want more, and I think that StillWill -- Will Prescott -- currently does the best work. Not only the best, but the work with the most impact. There is no comparison, art is art and everything else is everything else. Will's videos started out like everything else, but over the past year they have evolved into much more and provide emotional impact and go places you don't think they would go. That being said, watch his latest K-1 video and try not to make a fool of yourself, pick up your jaw and wipe your mouth.
