PRIDE Shockwave 2003 - Star Studded Lineup

Dec 2, 2003
PRIDE's new year's eve event will feature a rematch between Royce Gracie and Hidehiko Yoshida.

Headlining the fight card will be the long-awaited rematch between Royce Gracie and Hidehiko Yoshida. These two submission artists battled at SHOCKWAVE 2002 and the result was the controversial finish in which Yoshida was victorious via gi choke, though Gracie protested that he did not tap and was not unconscious. This rematch continues the epic rivalry between Gracie Jiu Jitsu and Japanese Judo, which began over 50 years ago when Helio Gracie fought Masahiko Kimura in a match to prove who had the superior fighting style.

The card also features an all-star lineup with Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira, Wanderlei Silva, Ryan Gracie, Don “The Predator” Frye, Heath Herring, Mario Sperry, and Hayato “Mach” Sakurai.

SHOCKWAVE 2003 will not be available in North America via pay per view.
