CONTRACTS, CONTRACTS, CONTRACTS

Two of the hottest prospects in MMA have been busy fielding offers lately, but so far, neither one has signed. As part of the fallout from the ownership change-up of Pride, Denis Kang and Thierry Sokoudjou are looking for new homes.

No, he had a proposed deal with Elite XC. That deal will likely have to wait because of his remaining Pride contract.

yeah but from what i read it sounded like he was uncertain about signing with elite xc

would be the perfect time for the ufc to make a good deal and get a great striker

The link isn't working for me, but either way this is great news, at least as much as I wondering just yesterday when Dennis Kang was going to fight again! I would love to see it in the UFC, but i guess Bodog would be OK too. As for Soku, there is definitely some questions out there, I would love to see the article that says where he is going. I heard them announce Soku on the last Strikeforce card, but they didnt mention signing him. Cant wait to see both these guys fight again.!

The link didn't work for me. Does anyone know what's going to happen to the super HW over 265. Will Pride keep the unlimited weight classes or will UFC make a new class?
