Tom "The Big Cat" Erikson

An accomplished wrestler, Tom Erikson is truly the "Big Cat" of the PRIDE FC ring. Not only does he boast the power of a big cat, but he also possesses tremendous agility for a man of his size, making him an incredibly difficult match-up for any heavyweight. Erikson's style is simple---take his opponent to the ground and pound him. His wrestling background includes a mastery of takedowns and once he gets his opponent to the ground, they usually stay there.
