Excellent point! I agree that would be an awesome strategy for the UFC. PRIDE is almost insignificant at this point anyway. It reminds me of the saying "if a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears it..."? If the best fighters in the world are in PRIDE but nobody watches (besides the sadistic Japanese public who love to see their countrymen bludgeoned half to death) are they really the greatest? Cro-cop is the 5th best HW in the UFC now. I can't wait to see Big Tim knock him out with the same quick left hook that Randleman knocked him out with.

Mirko will never be the best in the world until he beats Fedor and I think he needs to beat Nog too. But to UFC fans he will be what Fedor is to Pride and thats only natural seeing as how he'll utterly dominate.

Crocop the new Fedor? no. Crocop however will dominate the UFC LIKE Fedor does PRIDE. Hopefully we will see Crocop VS Fedor again in a few years.

Its not like the UFC is trying to be a bunch of assholes. Its just smart advertising. If they say "Chuck is only the 2nd best fighter in the world, Wanderlei is the first and he fights in PRIDE" then who the hell is gonna watch UFC anymore? People don't want to watch the 2nd best fighter they want to watch the best. Same thing applies to Cro Cop and Fedor. UFC will never acknowledge Fedor as the best fighter because once fans here about him they'll just wanna watch PRIDE and the UFC will lose a buttload of money.

Either way you look at it ... CC is just running away from Pride and cant handle the fighters there ... MARK HUNT would kill him in UFC or PRIDE ... Marks done it already in K1 & Pride ... Run and hide CC (CORN CHIPS) ... hahahaha

i just think its such a bore to have to watch CC fight 5 or 6 UFC cans to "prove himself". the majority of people who watch the UFC, are fans of PRIDE too; of all MMA. Not having CC in a title fight straight off the plane is an in**** to him, to the fans who have their heads out of their butts, and to MMA!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

only Japanese people watch PRIDE? wow, you've got a lot to learn about MMA if you really think that, and think CC is behind anyone in the UFC. If you believe that Silvia or AA can even hang with CC, you've both never seen a CC fight, and know nothing of MMA beyond TUF!
