Asking i think alot of people think it should stay the way it is seens if everyone comes to ufc some people wont get fight time .
And others think it should be one show so the best fight the best .
So just give out your opinions on which you think should be done.

I think there should be 2 shows because you get
1) the UFC experience
2) the Pride experience

there are more fighters, different commentators, (hopefully) different rules and you can have the GrandPrix's unlike in America. Oh and Pride is my favorite org so im probably biased.

I think they should combine them... the best fighters against eachother? That would awesome... and they should set up so u can see at least 7 fights on tv, i pay 40 bucks to watch 4 fights, kinda makes me mad!

mosy pay per views are $40 to see usually 5 main card fights, and sometimes 1 or 2 prelim fights (just depends).
I would like to see 2 shows (sometimes have ufc vs. Pride fights). but thats not gonna happen. there gonna bring the main pride fighters to ufc and put the others in WEC and make it like the new pride. once ufc needs more fighters they will probably bring the pride fighter out of wec and put them in ufc

Not to be that guy but we get to see 5 fights and if there is time left they usually show an undercard fight. On the subject of them combining the 2 companies I couldnt agree more. I think it would be great to see all of the dream matchups and see who the best in each weight class really is.

Keep PRIDE and UFC seperate, hold PRIDE events in Japan and keep UFC in Europe and North America.

I don't see why they would totally scrap an established brand name in Japan, and I would miss the Pride style of running shows. I say run them seperately, and have an annual or semi-annual super event as originally planned.

I'm gonna miss Pride. I love the pride atmosphere and how respectful the fans are. and just the sportsmanship they had in pride, there was alot more respect in pride than in ufc

One organization, Use the Cage, no Elbows, foot stomps and knees to the head of a grounded opponent, have grand Prixs every now and then, have the best fight the best on a regular basis and finally rename the organization Ultimate Pride Fighting Championships (UPFC)

I agree with you except for the name change. One thing to add, make duel cards hold and event in japan on the same day as an event in Las Vegas. tape the one in japan and call it Pride X and make the PPV really long with both events. Keep the event names separate, but all under the same org and one set of belts. The announcers can throw the feed to one fight in japan and then back to live. Make it an all day event like football and people will feel like they are getting there moneys worth. There are not enought fights on a UFC card for me and they still don't show all of them.
