Created in 2013, the Pride Championship is a secondary championship in FGA. Focused on establishing and showcasing the more "pure" grapplers in FGA, the Pride Championship is contested under Pride Rules. Pride Rules are:

1) No closed fists to the head. Pokes, gouges, rakes and other illegal strikes to the eyes are also prohibited. Failure to follow these rules will result in a warning, then a rope break being taken away. However, slaps, chops and kicks to the head are all legal.
2) Grapplers are allowed three rope breaks per match. If all three rope breaks are used, then a pinfall or submission cannot be broken up by a rope break.
3) Grapplers, no matter how much animosity is between them, must shake hands at the start of the match or be charged a rope break.
4) "Pride Rules" matches will have a 20 count on the outside instead of the standard 10.
5) Finally, all "Pride Rules" matches will be contested in Best 2 out of 3 Falls matches.
