I think my main concern with this narrow minded approach is as follows. In regards to the comment about business I run a successful website company (lol) so poo on you. Let me ask you this? If a boxing fan watches the IBF Heavyweight title fight, do you not think they will in turn watch the WBC title fight two weeks later, and then return and watch the next IBF title fight?
Dana's approach to hiding from Pride is small diick, narrowed minded business. If the average newbie MMA fan were to watch a Pride event, do you really think that will stop them from watching the next UFC event? Come on now, of course not. If anything it will encourage them to watch the next event as it will show them that the sport is universal and more recognized then they might have imagined in the first place.
What do you think?
