No More Pride Fighters?

So now it has been quite a while since the buyout of Pride and most of those guys who have transferred over have already fought, or are scheduled to fight. Will we see anymore Pride fighters signed? Or has Dana signed (or lost to another organization already) all the fighters he wants for the time being?

I think he intentionally didnt sign some of the mid-class guys so they can continue to build themselves up in other orgs and then bring them over once their new contracts are up. But there are still a LOT of guys I would love to see come over.

UFCfan610 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Bob Sapp is the only fighter in the world who has worse cardio the Tank Abbott. actually that's a fight that would be funny to see. they can make it 3- 1 minute rounds.

He went for an Americana. I don't know if butterbean could physically pull off an armbar. :/ And I certainly don't want to see him try.

i think its still up in the air man...as big of a deal the buy out was you cant expect everything to be mended in six months

you also have to remember all those pride fighters are technically under contract still with pride (under zuffa control now)

i suspect we will be seeing them trickle in slowly. theres also a moderate amount of court cases apparently

See this is what I dont understand though. Dana has said that the Pride fighters had to sign over their contracts to the UFC and if they chose not to they were free. But then I have also heard that Dana is threatening to sue fighters for going elsewhere while still being under "contract" to the UFC/Pride. Which is it? I just wish I knew where some of my favorites were going like Rog Nog, Arona, AE, etc.
