The UFC has grown by leaps and bounds the past year to 2. Who knows how big and stacked it "could" be in 2 years.

Several things are possible over the next 2 years. Things like..Fedor could retire? PRIDE OR UFC could fold/merge.. UFC HW division could be stacked in 2 years. CC might not even be the champion in 2 years. Fedor could move on.

2 years is along time right now in the UFC/PRIDE World.
Well I already read somewhere that Cro Cop wants to finish out his contract in a year or so and then go back to Pride and fight Fedor for the title.

IowaMFSFan has a little shameless behaviour in the past
First he 100% has a 6 Fight 2 year Contract. So leaving in a year wouldnt be a option unless the UFC lets him out of his contract. So he "couldnt" leave till around 2009 at the earliest.

I also read something like that,but it wasn't clear everything he was saying. It was translated rough and also I think in that same article he said something about Fighting Fedor,but he never said fight him in PRIDE.

My thoughts are still the same though. 2 years(his contract) is along time away and thus everyone needs to wait till 2008(unless some new info pops up)to start speculating on his leaving.

You think Pride wants to be in the US? No! They just need the cash. Changing the show to please the American fans would completely change the culture and hence the experience. The hardocore fans would not appreciate it one bit. I love the way they present their fighters, and I love the screaming lady. I often find myself yelling "Mirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrko" or "Maurrrrrrrrrrrrrricio"....its just so damn cool.

Of course PRIDE wants to be in the US Market. They are in it to make money and they have to enter the US Market for that longterm. If they dont there best fighters will leave.

They would rather not, money is the only thing that forces them to go to the states.

I know I love the lady who announces the fighters. She kicks Bruce Buffers ass.

I agree. Her screaming "Mirko Cro Cop" for the Mirko/Fedor fight = the best ****ing entrance in the history of... well, everything. The "loud japanese lady (who is actually an American lady)" takes some getting use to. I used to think she needed to be fired also, but after a year or two you realize she's the best ring announcer ever.

If Mirko does go back to Pride, he'll definitely be bring lots of new American fans with him. But if things continue the way they are, I don't think Pride can get him away from the UFC. There are only two ways for CC to get back to Pride. One is for Pride to get money, and I don't see this happening for awhile. Another is if either Fedor or CC himself wants to retire, then CC will go back to fight Fedor before it happens. I think this more likely right now, but it won't happen for a long time and by then we could already see Fedor in the UFC.

[thread hijack] I got respect for Bruce, but he's not even in the same league with Pride's announcer. She is an announcing goddess. I love how she'll switch up from the crazy scream to the sexy voice for some fighters. The best! [/thread hijack]

If I'm correct he has five fights left on his contract?
I think they will feed him another stiff and then some first contender bout with Arlovski or Vera and then a championship fight. That's two fights left. Next up, the championship rematch (provided Randy isn't the former champ) and another championship bout with someone.
Let's assume he beats everyone. He is then the undisputed heavyweight king of the UFC and his contract is expired.
Perfect moment for a rematch with Fedor for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world, it seems to me.

Ah well, I can only dream...
