They would have to adjust to include GSP or Penn/Hughes in the Mix........Im sure pride would get someone to fight at that weight and be competitive-

Pride does have a welterweight division, otherwise how would Henderson be the WW Champ? They just don't have a LHW division, theyre middleweight division is 205 (UFC's LHW). Their lightweight goes up to 161, WW up to 186 I believe, MW 205, HW anything above.

What a stud

Ok then you get GSP to come up weight and fight in that division, you dont let talent like that go to waste. I like this tourny being setup, but rules and venue will prevent it from happening.

Chuck Liddell vs Shogun : Chuck by KO.

Babalu vs Wanderlei : Wand by KO unless Sobral can get it to the ground.

Anderson vs Filho : Filho via Submission.

Franklin vs Misaki : Franklin by late KO.

Sherk vs Gomi : Sherk would destroy Gomi.

Franca vs Sakurai : No idea, tough call.

Sherk destroy Gomi??? Uhhh...Sherk has a shot, but I don't know about destroying Gomi. I'd put my money on Gomi.

They wouldn't try to get 20 million if they just wanted to prove that. Is PRIDE getting desperate to add to their fanbase before they lose more fighters? Wanderlei lost his belt, is Fedor next?
