I hope that these rumors are at least partly true. I love both UFC and PRIDE FC. I want them to work as two seperate organizations. There was just some uniqueness to PRIDE.

THe truth is it is so hard to find anyone that will shed any light on PRIDE talks at all. I think that the fans deserve to know whether it is going to disappear or run again.

Matt Hughes in a GP would be a great test to see how GOOD of a fighter he really is. Personally im not a true fan of his but he does find a way to win.

If Brock Lesnar and Batista came to the UFC it would stop watching UFC simply because they would get owned and second off they will always be a ripped wrestler to me.

iv not heard any of these lol, but i hope that even tho ufc bought pride, pride should still stay a different show to ufc and keep running but i think more should be done on mixin the fighters like we should have more big fighters from ufc going into pride to fight and also some big fighters from pride going into ufc

so far we'v had
cro cop vs gonzaga - which was great
rampage vs chuck liddell - which was good rematch (finished quick tho :| )

we need more fights and match ups like them

Batista coming over to MMA? Wouldn't he be denied because of all the steroids he obviously uses?
