Well i cant figure out why this is now "pride vs UFC" All the UFC fans should be tickled pink. Why?
Because Sliva (one of the best MW in the world) is now a UFC fighter. HE IS A UFC CHAMP. He's not going to go anywhere at all. Even in his post fight interview he called the UFC his home. Thats nothing bud good for us fans. Maybe not so good for the fighters in the MW.
I think it is the start of a trend. You will start to see alot more fighters crossing over. All it takes is money and some endorsements. UFC has money now. There are some really good endorsements coming in. They really need to land a kick ass Beer deal. Budwieser would be idea, coors light would be second choice.
I see Sliva coming to the UFC as a good move by dana. Hell he made a uninteresting weight class the topic of conversation across the nation when MMA is brought up.
