Very interesting interview...

Enson Inoue interview

I wishI knew if he was a non-partial source or shilling for Pride. He beat my boy Randy when he vacated the belt the first time so I've never liked him. I would like it if the UFC bought Pride US and then we could have cross-promotional matches, but I think this is wishful thinking right now. Since he seems so close to Pride I put about as much stock in it as I would a opinion from a UFC guy. That is to say , not a lot.Thanks for the interview though, it was definately was interesting.

Yeah, you have to take what he says with a grain of salt as he seems to be more on Pride's side of the fence, plus he says most of what he knows is based on rumour anyways...

...just to rub it in:
Randy Coutoure Vs. Enson Inoue

Interesting point about everything being Yakuza. I guess they just have to wait for smoke to blow over.

You know, UFC matchmaker Joe Silva (I think that's his last name) was like in the 2nd or 3rd row. Why would BJM or Randy have to sit in the back, esp since Randy trains with Hendo? He was probably in the locker room

Yea, doesnt make full sence to me either, but who knows...

I don't mean to discredit Enson, but some things don't add up, Lorenzo was at the first US PRIDE event too, I remember seeing him in the crowd, right in front.

I know, thats why it surprizes me... maybe he mistook Randy sitting in the back as a sign that he was not accepted?
