Awesome! The article says there will be an official press conference tomorrow. And by the way I'm proud of that thread that refuses to end!

Me earlier this month:


It'd be really cool if they kept Pride like another league... then at the end of the year all the champions of each org fight each other. The loser would have his belt put into a tourney to crown a new champ at that weight (which the loser can enter) and the winner gets a ring or something. You could fill the rest of the card with heated rivalries. The only problem with all this is how many matches some fighters have in a year... I think 5 should be the new average to make this exciting.


And that article:


The new company that Pride will operate under apparently will not be run by UFC or Zuffa, but will be it’s own entity owned by the Fertittas. Thus Pride and the UFC being run separately. But, it is being reported that the two promotions will do a joint super show once a year. SportsHochi reports that Pride 34 on 4/8 will be the last Pride show run by DSE.


Glad they took my idea.

I saw that too ydoc, on the home page.. It is the best idea.. There was a few people who did'nt want to see ufc buy pride, and there was some of us who did want to see ufc buy pride.. A pride/ufc supershow is going to make everyone happy. I hope they dont sway from this idea.. Win Win situation imo.

They should put Jerry Millen in the ring with Chuck, same way Dana and Tito were going to do. Or hell just let Jerry fill in for the noshow Tito and let Dana and Jerry go at it!

No Problem! Just imagine if they decided to do Pride/UFC super tournaments, where the top 8 of any given weight division fight for a title!!! the LHW one would be fantasic....Chuck, Wandy, Shogun, Arona, Lil Nog, Hendo, Jackson and Ortiz!!!

I can't wait for these "Super Shows" they are talking about. Imagine Henderson v. Silva or Franklin, Shogun or Wand v. Chuck, Fedor Cro-Cop rematch, Sherk v. Gomi... I may just shit my pants thinking about it!!

I think Shogun and Chuck will happen sooner than we think....
(in case you missed this one....)


We learned that Chute Boxe's bomber "Shogun" Rua has signed a new four-fight deal with PRIDE that includes an interesting twist: two fights in the PRIDE ring and two fights inside the UFC ‘s Octagon.
His two fights with PRIDE are going to be held this year, with one fight secure for the end of the year in PRIDE New Year's Eve Otoko Matsuri extravaganza.
