I remember the analogy that it would be like the NFC and AFC coming together. Too bad that ain't true. I loved Pride. UFC is great but I don't like waiting and wishing that they will sign the PRIDE boys. They should pick'em all up and have more Fight Nights. That way there are no questions of who is the best and we would see guys like Kang, Overeem, Barnet, Hunt, Cyborge, Emilianenko bros. the list goes on.
Man, remember when they told us that it would be like NFC and AFC coming together, and for a moment we were all in heaven, looking at the dream match ups, MMA was going to go to the next level, then reality kicked in, and we remembered that sports business doesnt always work out in the interest of the fans. In this case we got royally done.
I liked MMA more when there were 2 major orgs putting quality shows, espescially Pride, which I always thought was much more slick and professional than UFC, as well as way more exciting. Now we only get half as much major league MMA, and some of my favourite fighters have been completely lost in transition.
