Well yes, PRIDE owns UFC because PRIDE performs in a country with bigger stadiums and population unlike UFC. And plus all of the good and popular UFC fighters usually ditch UFC because PRIDE offers them huge contracts. Look, PRIDE has all the good fighters and champions: Fedor Emelianenko (he can kill any heavyweight in the world besides Rutten), Antonio Rodrigo Nogeira, Wanderlei Silva (he owned in UFC), and Dan Henderson. The only fighter in the UFC that is better than one of those fighters due to his division is Rich Franklin who can beat Dan Henderson. Rich Franklin will probably end up in PRIDE soon if he loses his title.

And I also dislike it when people say PRIDE is more popular than UFC just because the audience attendances are way bigger. UFC actually is more popular considering a lot of people gather around and order it on PPV rather than paying 100 bucks to go to a stadium and watch it.
