Be More Specific

UFC didn't buy PRIDE so change the name of the threads.

And PRIDE FC is now PRIDE Worldwide so that should be changed too.

May sound like I'm being an asshole but I like things to be correct.

agreed. the title of the official thread is very misleading. Zuffa(not UFC) bought Pride.

Alright! At least some people have got it right. I've read so many things saying UFC buys Pride. Even in the newspapers and magazines and s**t. Just goes to show that only the true hardcore fans know the difference. Its getting old seeing the same old UFC buys Pride s**t. Kind of makes me mad.

But in reality....since it wasnt a merger and the UFC officials are taking over a lot of the positions in the Pride HQ, changing rules and whatnot; it really seems like UFC bought out Pride. If UFC's parent company or the owners of the UFC parent company simply bought the organization and didnt change any of the rules, it would be a different story. To an uneducated or non-caring person, what it boils down to is that UFC bought Pride.
I m not saying it has to make sense, but essentially, the average fan doesnt give a rats ass.

Zuffa didn't buy PRIDE. The only person or thing that bought PRIDE was Lorenzo Fertitta.

i thought i saw a news article that said Zuffa had...but upon further inspection the official press release does say Fertitta. that goes to show, can't trust those so called news sites. thanks for straightening me out. i can still say with confidence that it wasn't UFC though
