There are some feds out there that feed directly into the Big 2 (three depending upon your POV). WEC feeds into the UFC any others you guys can think of?

Cage Rage acts as a feeder for Pride on some level, a number of Pride fighters have fought in CR whilst under contract or been lifted from CR itself.

Then obviously the UFC has just bought out WFA and there is the strong rumor that they are in the process of buying out Pride...

Pride Rumor was squashed, there was even rumor that the WWE would purchase it. I wonder where strikeforce lies in the scheme of things.

True, recently Cage Rage have had Ninja, Matsui, Shoji, Nakamura and others well known Pride fighters in CR, in fairness mainly those on a downward spiral in their careers

Also Pride have just recently signed Cage Rages' Zelg Galesic who is a great young fighter, watch out for him in 2007

Zelg has been tearing through each and every one of his opponents and recently has convincingly beaten some competent fighters in Stout and Weir.

Pride will be a real test for him, as his division is seriously stacked, it will be interesting to know if he can hang with some of the top guys over at 185.
