4.0 out of 5 stars High Octane has its Highs and Lows (no spoilers) April 30, 2006
Format:DVD
Pride 28: High Octane showcases top caliber fighters like Heath Herring, Dan Henderson and Mirko Cro Cop. But there's one problem. The formula of the fight card pits Pride's cream of the crop veterans vs newcomers and rookies. This can be problematic for obvious reasons. The show is swamped with predictability and freak injuries.

Yet the PPV's saving grace is the highly anticipated main event Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs Wanderlei "Axe Murderer" Silva. This is the explosive rematch from their first heated encounter in the 2003 Middleweight Championship bout, where Wanderlei Silva won by TKO. This time around, Quinton Jackson is bigger and badder than ever, and he is easily the toughest opponent Silva will face yet. This is one of the very few hyped matches that actually deliver the goods. If you're a fan of either fighter, the rest of the mediocre card becomes a forgivable byproduct of the PPV. However, if you're purchasing the event with intentions of watching a star-studded show stacked with your favorite fighters waging war against equally threatening opponents, I'm guessing you probably won't think very highly of High Octane.

The fight card is as follows (rated on a scale of 0-10):

PRELIMINARY MATCH
Soa Palalei vs Mu Bae Choi (8/10)

MAIN CARD
Heath Herring vs Hirotaka Yokoi (8/10)
Ricardo Arona vs Sergey Ignatov (6/10)
Dan Henderson vs Kazuhiro Nakamura (0/10)
Mark Hunt vs Daniel Bobish (8/10)
Alistair Overeem vs Hiromitsu Kanehara (5/10)
Aleksander Emelianenko vs James "The Colossus" Thompson (8/10)

CO-MAIN EVENTS
Mirko Cro Cop vs Josh Barnett (0/10)
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs Wanderlei Silva (10/10)

4.0 out of 5 stars High Octane November 28, 2005
Format:DVD
This event was dissapointing because of some freak injuries, but Wanderlei vs Rampage alone is worth the price this event.

Wanderlei Silva v Quinton Jackson- Probably the best fihgt of 2004 both guys were floored during the fight and came back to put on a great show.

Cro-Cop v Josh Barnett- Very dissapointing the way it ended.

James Thompson v Aleksander Emilianenko- This was a decent fight and you see Aleksander is for real.

Allistair Overeem v Hiromitsu Kanehara- All I have to say is mismatch, you get a chance to see what a thai boxer can do with their knees.

Dan Henderson v Kazuhiro Nakamura- I was really looking forward to this fight but it was very dissapointing

Wandy vs Rampage alone is enough to buy this dvd. High Octane is a great event, good for any pride, ufc, or any MMA fan. Get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pride Fighting Championships 28: High Octane September 14, 2006
Format:DVD
This should be a great night of fights. On the card, we have the rematch between Pride Middleweight champ, Wanderlei Silva and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. We also get to see Cro Cop take on Josh Barnett, which is also a highly anticipated fight. The rest of the fights could go either way, having little effect on the Pride divisions. Let's get to the action.

Hirotaka Yokoi v. Heath Herring:

They call Heath the "Texas Crazy Horse" over in Japan. He is a madman in there most of the time, which makes him an exciting fan favorite. He comes out blazing in this fight and the ref calls a timeout as Yokoi is taking knees to the head on the ground after being dropped. This is very strange. It all ends not too long after this point. This is a very good fight to kick off the event.

Ricardo Arona v. Sergey Ignatev:

Arona is coming back from being KO-slammed by Quinton Jackson, his only Pride loss. Arona looks great this time out and gets himself back on track with an excellent display of ground fighting technique. Arona lost his shot at fighting Wanderlei Silva for the title to Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, but he is determined to get back to top contender status.

Alexandre Emelianenko v. James Thompson:

This immediately turns into a wild slugfest. Thompson is making his Pride fighting debut. Do you think he makes a good showing or goes quickly down in flames in a matter of seconds?

Alistair Overeem v. Hiromitsu Kanehara:

Overeem had lost his last fight to the UFC's Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell by knockout. He is back in Pride and looking to re-establish himself. He dictates the pace of this lopsided fight. Kanehara doesn't give in, but he takes quite a beating to prove his heart.

Dan Bobish v.

4.0 out of 5 stars Icepacks All Around! December 4, 2011
Format:DVD
PRIDE 28: HIGH OCTANE is one of the most brutal Pride cards I've ever seen. It contains at least five fights that deserve this adjective, with some great come-from-behind wins, too. Unfortunately, there are also two potentially classic matchups that get short-circuited by freak injuries, which is why I had to penalize HIGH OCTANE one star.

The spoiler-free lineup is:

Herring vs. Yakoi - What this fight lacks in length it makes up for in brutality.

Arona vs. Ignatov - A solid matchup between a Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert versus Russian wrestler.

A. Emilianenko vs. Thompson - Don't blink or you'll miss this Clash of Really Big Dudes.

A. Overeem vs. Kanehara - A brutal, one-sided fight between a striker and a... strikeee.

Hunt vs. Bobish - Ouch. They fought like two drunk fat guys over the last slice of pizza.

Henderson vs. Nakamura - What could have been an epic is stopped early by a freak injury.

Cro Cop vs. Barnett - The first installment of their weird three-fight trilogy, is, like the last fight, stopped fast by another freak injury.

W. Silva vs. Jackson - The rematch between these two blood rivals is as wickedly violent as the first.

Bonus Match: Be vs. Palalei - Slow starter turns into "Rocky II."

Special Features: The usual, plus a "Jackson vs. Silva: The Rematch" promotional short.

(Final Note: As on all PRIDE DVDs, if you want to remain in the dark as to the outcomes of the fights, just select "Play" on the start menu, not "Select A Fight")
