Im sure they didnt end on bad terms, Mirko was such a likeable guy in Pride, and this surely doesnt sound like they ended on bad terms, if they did, he would say No he wont go, or no comment, but he blatently said, he will cheer for Mirko. Hopefully Crocop gets his UFC Champ belt, then 1-2yrs down the line, comes back to where he belongs PRIDE
Pride: Will you attend the February 3rd UFC event in which Mirko will fight?
Sakakibara: I will go to cheer for Mirko, of course. I think that among all new sports borne in this new generation, mixed martial arts is the most exciting. If UFC fighters want to fight in PRIDE, that's fine. On the other hand, if PRIDE fighters want to challenge themselves in the UFC, that's fine, too.
