Pride sets date for return
Japanese newspaper announces event for August 18

The information is still preliminary, but the Japanese newspaper Nikkan Sports announced in yesterdays issue that Pride has a date set for its next event. Under the command of the Americans, Pride “Japanese All Star” should happen on August 18, at the Saitama Super Arena, in Japan.

To rekindle Japanese taste for the organization, which has not put on a show since April 4, the star of the main event will be the judoka Hidehiko Yoshida. There is no information as yet of fighters of other nationalities.


this is being reported by both sherdog and graciemag

I read this earlier, and I'm really thrilled not only to see Pride back, but that Yoshida is the main draw! I wonder who they're gonna match him up with...

It aint over yet!

Can't wait to see Yoshida getting back in there again, he always puts on a good fight!

No doubt this event will have a huge gate, just like all the other Pride events

Pride Forever!

this is great news, i expect it will be mostly japanese fighters on the card, but guys like barnett, kang, frye, hunt, and who knows maybe even, dare i say, fedor might show up. pride has a history of announcing matches 1 or 2 at a time so who knows who might be fighting at this event. i hope that zuffa does the event the way pride has always done them, and that if it is prides last stand they go out with a star studded show from top to bottom.

Why all the love for Yoshida?!
I don't see what's so special about him and I usually don't enjoy his fights.

I'm really happy Pride is back but Yoshida in the main bout doesn't sound promising to me.

Don't forget about Shinya Aoki! Some of the best jiu jitsu I've ever seen in mma.

I wish Wandy was the main event, but Yoshida is bigger draw in Japan.
