it seems likely.. the two frontrunners were fishman and ufc..
things are rocky with fishman as it seems (him sueing pride..) so maybe it really is a matter of time till ufc buys pride.

This an ubstansiated rumor, could be true , but fourm people make up stuff all the time. So I'm putting it in the padded room.

I think that would be great. But just if the orgs were seperate. Maybe if Chuck/ Wand had fought it woulda been good. But thats all gone to crap now. I personally want to see Pride and the UFC competeting agaisnt each other to see who can put on the best show. Comepetioin is what makes sport great.
