Yes. The more fights get the chance too see the better it is for the fans. Look at the new organizations started/starting up. MMA is on a huge upswing and its win win for the fans.

Here's a link to the newest MMA company that I've heard of. I wasn't on much the past couple days so I might have missed this.

FightOpinion.com - Your Global Connection to the Fight Industry.

sounds like they got some big money and some "names" involved.

ive said it before and ill say it again...i dont want to be selfish...id rather not watch pride in the US and let it flourish in japan than pride taking a big blow trying to make their presence known in the US...they have a hard enough time continuously getting out done by k-1...they should stay in japan because its gonna be very difficult to win over even a fraction of the UFC fans in north america...gotta give sakakiraba credit for even attempting such a great feat...

it's ok to dig both

i prefer ufc but i also like pride. i have heard consistent rumours that ufc is looking at buying pride and then merging them both. that would be incredible. it would open up tons of possibilities-Fedor vs Sylvia, Silva vs Chuck for example. The ufc is running out of matchups. Sylvia vs Couture is an example of dana white getting desparate to create some excitement around the heavyweights. merge them and instant excitement happens.
