Why do people say PRIDE fighters are better than UFC fighters?

now that they are unified, and we have seen alot of the best UFC fighters beat the best Pride fighters, is there any discussion left (henderson v. griffin, shogun v. rampage, silva v liddell, henderson v. silva)? Is it firmly established that UFC fighters were always better than PRIDE fighters or what? help... show more now that they are unified, and we have seen alot of the best UFC fighters beat the best Pride fighters, is there any discussion left (henderson v. griffin, shogun v. rampage, silva v liddell, henderson v. silva)?

Is it firmly established that UFC fighters were always better than PRIDE fighters or what?
