Will Pride be the same again now that UFC has taken over!

I dont know if pride will ever be the same again, now that ufc has aquired it. It seems like dana white is taking most of the good fighters from pride and in to the ufc: Rampage, Cro-Cop, Noguiero. I mean whose next...Fedor? I might be wrong but maybe thats ufc's plan, is to destroy pride by taking out all the good fighters and bringing them to the states and ufc.

Yeah...if they really want to have a mega ppv they cant be taking all of prides top guys.

One thing ive been wondering now. Are Prides Entrances and their really cool videos introducing the fighters still going to be there? Or will it carry on like the boring generic entrances of the UFC

That goober Dana has said to the Japanese fans that "UFC is coming to kick your ass......", but how many Pride fighters will he need to acquire, in order to do this.

Definetly wont be.

-New talent wont come in and fight top talent.
-Rules will be same as stupid UFC ones.
-Talent will most likely be sent over to fight in the UFC(you can see this already, Big Nog, Shogun(prob), etc...
-Something tells me theyll stop top talent from fighting in the tournaments. Dont want to see your unbeatable champ get Marcus Aurelio'd now do we?
-Goodbye freakshow matchups. I know some people hate them, but two big guys beating the shit out of eachother makes me smile

Will probably add more later...

Your right it won't be the same anymore, pride champions might actually start defending titles every fight, that would be just crazy.

ya i dont think it will be the same either. After dana take all the top pride guys to the ufc, and then he's gonna claim that the ufc beat pride. They probably will change the rules too, no more stomps? thats the pride signature.

The thing I hope stays the same is the great entrances of PRIDE Fighters, I love PRIDE's entrances. I still have NO IDEA why the UFC would just use their boring entrances especially considering taht they are/were bringing in much more money that PRIDE yet paying their fighters the same?? Why is it UFC only had the stage entrance for UFC 40-43? Then take it away?
