Pride Final Conflict 2003 Wiki Update Wiki

After the Quarterfinals of the first-ever Pride Middleweight Tournament kicked off three months earlier, Pride Final Conflict 2003 played host to both the Semifinals and Finals of the tournament. In the Semifinals, Quinton Jackson upset UFC fighter Chuck Liddell by dominating him en route to a TKO in the second round, while Wanderlei Silva punished Hidehiko Yoshida en route to a Unanimous Decision verdict.


In the tournament Finals, Wanderlei Silva defeated rival Quinton Jackson by TKO due to repeated knee strikes from the clinch, earning the 2003 Middleweight Tournament Championship to go along with his coveted Pride Middleweight Championship. After the tournament, Silva was widely considered to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
