JPN MMA News-from SAMURAI nation - DSE president mock UFC.....Tim Silvia run away from Fedor?

found this link and its kinda engrishy, but you kind of get the gist of it...can anyone verify that this interview with sakakibara is authentic/accurate? it seems like he is blatantly and disrespectfully calling out dana and all of his fighters which he usually doesnt do...this is a definite change from saka's usual professional and respectful tone...maybe something got lost in translation?

So true. White is afraid of Pride because he can't control what's going on. I would love for Silva, Mirko, or Fedor to fight in November in the UFC. Pride owns the UFC, hands down.

I getting sick of both owner disrespect towards their rival organizations. Boths organizations are great and have top fighters. I just wish they could come to agreements and prove who is the best. Until then they should both shut up.

Pride better than UFC or UFC better than pride is the stupidest arguement I have ever heard. I guess pride has more fighters in their roster. They have really good heavyweights and thats about it. All the other divisions are owned by UFC fighters. Again I am not saying one is better than the other. With the style of the ring I actually prefer the octagon over the pride ring. The only good thing with the pride ring is that the spectators get a better view but I would like to fight in an octagon over the pride ring. I agree with asskicker, Dont jump into conclusions before anything actually happens.

fedor and who? doesnt matter...FEDOR...

franklin is cool and a pretty good fighter, but silva would end up getting the best of him...

crocop and liddell? c'mon, seriously...

welterweight however, thats a different story...

and ufc doesnt even have a lightweight to compete with takanori...

i still love UFC and enjoy watching it, but lets face reality...so many people wouldnt defend the superiority of pride if it really wasnt "better." your definition of "better" is up to you and thats where the argument usually lies...

crocop and liddell is a good one and we have to see. anyone against fedor is Fedor. welterweight and middle weight is UFC then. am I right?

The funny thing is that it is just an example of what Dana and Sakakibara say all the time about each other, just not necessarily always in front of a journalist. I'm not suprised that either organization feels that they are better than the other. Hell, they definitely have the fans debating over it.

Franklin and Silva wouldn't fight, to big a difference in weight. Chuck probably wouldn't fight Crocop for the same reason. I would love to see a couple of Pride guys fight in the cage but I don't like the ring. To me it is a boxing ring and doesn't transfer well to mma. I am surprised about the talk of Wandy ko'ing Chuck after the Vitor and Tito fights. I've seen Wandy fight in pride a bunch but from what I've seen he is 0-2 in the ufc.

It does change, but the interview made it seem like a for sure ko for Wandy. Noone can say that about this possible fight. Funny how UFC points the finger at pride and pride points the finger at ufc.

I hate when people compare Silvas UFC fights that were years ago then after improving a lot he won tons in pride and they never say anything about liddell coming to Pride getting his ass kicked and knocked out by Rampage who has lost badly to Silva twice. You obviously know nothing about silva if you can only compare him to fights that were years ago. I am not saying he would beet liddell hands down because I think it could go either way but if your gonna talk about his loses atleast throw in Liddells loses to.

first off pride has no WW's(170lb) so there is nothing to compare there second mirko is about the same weight as chuck mirko doesnt really drop weight for fights and fights at 225ish chuck walks around at about that weight and drops weight to make 205 i wouldnt bet on him in that fight but he always has his chance with that lucky ko punch like he did to allistair and i would have given middleweights to pride but with the way hendo has been fighting lately im not sure

i agree with steveo. every good fighter has their losses. and remember you have ur good days and ur bad days. a chuck fan is gonna say he will win vice versa. truth is u never know until it happens cause anything can happen in a fight
