I have Bellator head honcho Bjorn Rebney’s Dad; The Winnebago Man on in the background, so I don’t want to dive to deeply into quantum physics, but for the sake of this article I will briefly. There is an alternate universe where Pride still exists, this much we know is true. Quantum physics tells us that the multiverse is real and Genki Sudo is dancing impressively in every universe conceivable, all while the MMA fan base is enjoying some amazing fights with Pride rules.
The guys over at THQ have decided to digitally recreate one of these many possible parallel universes in UFC 3. To be specific it’s Pride era Rampage Jackson Vs. Ryan Bader in Pride. The fact that it’s a past Rampage fighting current day Bader throws the alternate universe thing out the window….Unless a time traveler in this alternate dimension picked up Quinton in, let’s say 2005 and then moved him forward in time to 2011 where Pride still exists and Ryan Bader is under contract with them. Of course this is all predicated on time travel being invented/perfected pre 2005. We can’t go back in time, only forward.
So thanks for the completely unrealistic but still fun to watch breakdown of how a young Rampage and current Ryan Bader fight would go down in Pride, THQ. We appreciate it.
