What's the differece if they have "much better fighters" when they are all going to be owned by the same org anyway?
And if Pride was such a better organization than they wouldn't have been having financial problems and they would have had a good T.V deal like the UFC.

But the whole no kneeing thing has to change Dana better do something about that because it's not fair for certain fighters.

Do I really need to explain myself. I think I'm being pretty obvious about how I feel. If you really don't get it, I'll explain.

Let me tell you something, good organization does not always equal good business. They are two seperate aspects and they are not directly related.

Thumbs down

Ure right it would be much better if Pride bought UFC. For Now its going to be good to watch the pride fighters wup some UFC ass but later on this might actually be bad for MMA . Pride has a tradition of lettng fighters comeback to fight no matter if they win or lose as long as they put up a good fight. The UFC has let go off some good fighters just because they didnt like them. This could end up hurting MMA in the future because there will only be one major MMA organization and they will be able to do what they want with the fighters.

I'm not digging the whole "one giant company" thing either. I think it's better if they kept the two organizations seperate. It's not so much as fighters from the two organizations fighting each other but two companies battling each other that makes it interesting for me.

Obviously people did not read the interview.. they said both groups are being run seperatly from each other and will still compete for talent on thier respective shows.. the only thing changing really is now they can have yearly superfights between the top fighters from each which is all anyone really wanted.. and except for some minor changes to the pride rules so they can fight in the US more readily with out have to remember which rules they are fighting under things will pretty much go on as usual.. I think this is for the better for everyone.
