But it ultimately marked the beginning of the journey that, a few months later, ended with the death of the PRIDE Fighting Championships.

there is no way the $70 million was worth it, it seems like it just ruined a few years for Pride fighters making it even harder to lure them to the UFC. And I am guessing they are less able to pay fighters more because of such a huge cash outlay for next to no assets, they pretty much paid off their competition to become the lesser organizations Dream and Affliction.
