Consolidation like this is great for MMA in general. The average American probably hasn't heard of Pride, as it's really hard to find here. If there is one major MMA league, it makes it much easier for a casual viewer to follow, and eliminates any controversy over who the real champions are. Hopefully Pride and UFC will merge at some point, but I don't see that happening any time soon.
