I'd trade Tito for Wandy and Arona for B. Vera. Tito would give Pride a good well known US fighter and he's not gonna beat Chuck. Wandy has fought everyone in Pride he's gonna fight except LIL Nog, and we could finally see Wandy vs Chuck. Arona with elbows and the cage would be tougher. Vera and the UFC are pissed at eachother , and this would also help Pride's US push. A win/win for all fans, However, I think the UFC would never do something that would help Pride grow in the US. Still, I think it makes sense for the fighter's and the fans.

Tito for Wandy for sure. That is probably the best trade that they could make.

Joe stevenson for Gomi, because Gomi would tear it up and I just dont like Joe.

I don't think Arona would be a good trade. I like Arona and everything but I don't think American fans would except him that well. But who knows. Tito would be a good trade, but my picks are Sam Hoger for Fedor and Leban for Shogun. That's a far trade.

Seriously....

Rich for Henderson
Stephenson for Gomi
Tito for Shogun
Vera for Nog

Maybe I should have been more specific. I meant fair trades that would help both orginazations.

UFC has a lacking HW division, Pride has lacking...hmm... less good 183 div IMO. It's not a very exciting one if you compare it with the other Pride divisions.

Kharitonov for Rich Franklin

Edson Drago for Scott Smith

Edson is the kind of fighter that the UFC fans would love with his raw knockout power.

I think Tito going to Pride would be a good thing for Pride and Tito, but I would rather get Shogun over in the cage...

Then to bolster the HW division, I'd give up Vera for Big Nog (makes sense for Nog too, I don't think he should fight Fedor again)... I'd love to see Rodrigo tool Big Tim...

Big Nog by triangle choke Rd 3...

And then CC / Rod Nog II... Immeadiate impact in the HW division.

1) Tim Sylvia for Fedor (not exactly fair but who doesn't want to see Cro Cop vs Fedor 2)
2) Dan Henderson for Tito Ortiz (Henderson in the UFC could make for some really good MW or even LHW matches)

Tito for wandy makes even more semse to me now, I started this tread before he lost to Hendo, both could get a fresh start. Vera is going to EliteXC now , so he's out. So I'll trade Melendez for Stevenson. Stevenson is known here, and would help their US push. Melendez could either be a immediate comtender at 155, or be the start of a featherweight division.Either way both orgs. benefit IMO
