He also wants this fight w/ Fedor soon, and Pride will work this out with him. They have done too much for him in the past. He only comes to the UFC if he believes the rumors that Pride is crumbling, which I doubt.
Not that I understand it much, but how can you say you dont believe Pride is crumbling when theres News that Pride is talking to the WWE and UFC (to name a few) about buying it?
As for people saying Mirko should stay in Pride, stop nuthugging... Hes not gonna stick around and sign a brand new contract to FINISH what he started in Pride, fighting Fedor... Hed be dumb to sign a long term deal with Pride with the crap going on there right now.
If he gets more money from the UFC you KNOW hes gonna go there. And Dana (Unless hes as retarded as everyone thinks he is) will jump all over this one and shock the world!
Can you imagine the dollar signs in front of his eyes when he envisions CroCop in the HW division? OMG man lol
