What about the Welterweight division which just so happens to be the UFC's most stacked div?


Cro Cop vs Fedor : Too close to call, don't know awesome fight though.

Tim Sylvia vs Nogueira : Either Tim by KO or Nog by submission.

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.

It would be nice to see GSP added to the list somewhere?

Pride doesn't have one.

As a betting man I would say it would insane not to include the ufc's best division. Where are GSP, BJ Penn, Matt Hueghes. If I was going to bet with those kind of stakes I would make sure I had my best talent fighting.

I would say pride would win most of those matches, so why would dana risk everything.

Overall I would say that this is pretty silly.

This would be awesome. Some matchups look good but I think PRIDE would win most of the bouts

Hmm, sounds like PRIDE needs some cash. (If the fighters could win a majority)

I have to say, looking at some of the possible matchups, I really think this would be a competitive fight so to speak. Of course, going into the UFC's 5 weight divisions would really increase the UFC's chances. infact, I think if we go with PRIDES 4 classes they would win by a few, and if we went with UFC's 5 classes UFC would win by a few.
