I don't know about trying to get them to fight for three years but I did hear him say that he was pushing for the fight and Pride backed out. The deal was supposed to be that the UFC would send a couple of their top fighters to fight on a Pride card (unfortunately for Chuck that actually happened) and Pride was supposed to recipricate. I don;t remember seing any of Prides top fighters on any UFC PPV's so maybe Dana is'nt just blowing smoke out our asses.
