Either way I'm sure we can all agree that it's great that the UFC is finally getting some real talent.
Have you ever considered the fact that you're quite transparent with you're wind up's?

I guess what I'm trying to say is that Anderson Silva is now a UFC fighter. Mirko Filipovic is also a UFC fighter. The talent comes and goes, it's just what it is. UFC has been around longer, correct?
You may like the rules or the setting in one organization better than the other, but saying that one is talentless and the other one is not is inaccurate. It merely states the current fighter distribution, at best.
This argument tecnically settles all UFC vs. PRIDE BS arguments. You're either an MMA fan or you're not. You love it or you don't.
This is an MMA forum...
Once agin I find your post to be something of merit. I think the same.

I feel it's all for the best,Pride has awesome fighters within it's ranks,but the UFC provide a much better "show" shall we say,therefore the better fighters performing in the better "show" is a winning combination for the fans.

Totally agree with the post about being a MMA fan, not just a fan of a particular organisation. If only it could be worked out that fighters can go for any title they can then that would be the major breakthrough to make MMA a huge worldwide sport

As of about a month ago most guys in the UFC were B level compared to Pride guys. With the exception of Chuck, GSP, Penn, Hughes, and I'll say Franklin and Sherk too. But now I think its pretty even.

i dont mind at all.

To me its mma not UFC. Its the fighters i like and ill watch them on whatever org. the compete in

Well thats my answer. I have seens fighters go back and forth and there is nothing wrong with that, as many have said before, its good for the sport.
