also, you said PRIDE is really for PRIDE fans, but that's not wholly true. mostly, the only people i've ever seen ***** about PRIDE's "feel/show/whatever" are from the US. so, is the UFC geared towards only American fans? are japanese MMA fans *****ing about how the UFC is presented? something to think about. i mean, the japanese prolly cringe whenever they hear a round of booing from the UFC audience. maybe they feel the UFC needs to root out their ignorant fans so as not to show so much disrespect to the fighters??? food for thought.

Oh I definatly think when UFC did Japan they didn't do as well as they should have. They didn't really change a thing.
I'm sure they think that American MMA is silly in some ways or stupid in certain ways.
...Other than the entrance ramp on Pride I can't really put my thumb on what i would change about it, the whole show just comes off kind of cheesy.
I'm not knocking thier talent, AT ALL...
I even like Pride rules a little better too

to me, that "cheeseyness" is really just a grand scale of entertainment. i mean, these fighters are truly respected, nobody ever ever ever gets booed. their enterences are so important because the japanese fans "want" to cheer for them!!! anyway... we'll see what happens, but i don't think the "production value" would stop anyone who truly loves MMA from watching PRIDE! i'd hope...

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it
