Hmmm... Seems interesting!

Would be nice if they announce a big name fighter coming to either fight for a night or will sign a big contract, Fedor maybe?

You are obviously a big Fedor fan - would you like UFC more than Pride if he were there?

No. He should stay in Pride but maybe once while he is still champion, have a UFC fight in the octagon. The opponent would matter who, would get dominated. I want him to stay with Pride for his whole career but fight in other organizations for promotional purposes.

They want a piece of the USA market so it would be good for them and for his personal profile also.

Thing is H/W of any standard are a bit thin on the ground in the UFC. I know I will get slated for that but that is my honest opinion. They are my least favourite fights to watch, and I can't see why the UFC would want him to come in and oll over anyone, nor what that would do for the UFC.

I think that we can clearly rule out that any of the PRIDE heavyweights that are in the tournament are NOT going to go to the UFC. . . . but i think it might be some kind of tv deal with ESPN, but thats just my idea

I wouldn't be suprised if they moved TUF5 from Spike to ESPN. Whatever the deal is, it should be good.
