Pride Fighting Championships, usually known as Pride FC, monopolized Japan in mixed martial arts (MMA) with its shiny pageantry and just plain absurd fights. Pride FC greatly attended some of the largest MMA events in each organization.

Record-Setting Events

Shockwave - August 28, 2002

August 28, 2002: Shockwave National Stadium Tokyo, Japan Pride FC's record attendance held in the 80,000-seat Tokyo Dome. The event drew 91,107 fans and established a new all-time record for live MMA event attendance. Notably, the event also included a much-anticipated fight between Mirko Cro Cop and Kazushi Sakuraba in its main event.

Final Conflict 2003 - November 9, 2003

"Final Conflict 2003" held an event at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, which saw 67,451 people pack the house. The high-profile bad-blood match between Wanderlei Silva and Quinton Jackson, which highlighted this event, adds to its historical importance in the annals of Pride FC.

Significance of the Events

They really defined the organization in many ways, which is why these are still Pride FC's biggest events to date. These most notable moments, playing host to clashes with well-known fighters such as Mirko Cro Cop, Kazushi Sakuraba, Wanderlei Silva, and Quinton Jackson at their awful bests, gave way long ago to an affront-filled website devoid of real competitive spirit. These former world champions competed in the events, adding intense hype and anticipation to already stacked cards that drew fans from all over the globe.

Influencing Factors on Record Numbers

Several reasons propelled these Pride FC events to the top for highest attended ever. With recognizable and proven stars, fierce rivalries, and high-level competition at stake, such events' interest was unprecedented from fans worldwide. But even before these memorable outings, Pride FC regularly featured fighter entrances that were spectacle themselves. They also offered a wide array of fight styles in a single card, all elements which contributed to countless of viewers anxious to witness their champions smashing one another senseless.

On the Whole

The record-setting gates of Shockwave 2002 and Final Conflict 2003 prove that no organization can touch Pride FC when it comes to putting on the shows fans want. Known for signature bouts, epic fighters, and leadership in mixed martial arts sports, these events established Pride FC as a revolutionary fighting organization with an incredible influence.
