It's The Perfect Plan For PRIDE
Now that I think about it if Cro Cop does what he says hes gonna do and return to Pride after he finishes out his UFC contract Pride will finally get a ton of American fans.
Cro Cop comes to UFC and dismantles everyone with extremly exciting showings quickly becoming one of the most popular fighters in the UFC even to the ignorant UFC fan (not saying all UFC fans are ignorant just refering to the ones who are)
He goes back to Pride but UFC fans want more. They here Cro Cops fighting on a Pride card so they check it out since they now know how good he is and wanna watch him.
They dont think Pride is as good as UFC because thats what they've been lead to believe but see Cro Cop fight for the title against Fedor and lose.
They change there mind and think Pride is as good as or better than the UFC and Pride steals a TON of fans from UFC.
So right now I think Cro Cop going to UFC is a great business plan for Pride. Even if it wasnt the plan this has a great chance of really working in their favor in the end.
