UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world.

I guess they were to prove that they were #1. I agree with what Randy Couture said that if you are #1 then you don't have to take shots at the other company. Have you ever seen the UFC take a shot at Pride? The only rhing you have seen the UFC done in association with Pride is take their foghters and use brief footage to show what they can do.
So.....no specifics or examples to back up your thread for "Pride taking shots @ the UFC?" i agree with Randy too but if you think that Dana hasn't taken shots at Pride then you should read some of his interviews.
"They (Pride) threw away the biggest fight in MMA history. Not only are they No. 2, they’re not the brightest bulbs on the porch either…"
That Japanese PRIDE President(whatever is title is) has taken shots at UFC all the time. Way before Dana interview you guys are quoting above. I'm not saying PRIDE was the first,but the interview your quoting was done way after PRIDE insults toward UFC.
