    I was reading the post fight press conference notes and Dana said that both the Pride and UFC belt will be on the line in this fight. So does that mean that the belts are just going to be unified after this fight? They cant really make an argument against it because how are tehy going to explain both belts being on the line for this fight, but only one belt in future fights?

    I was wondering about the belts too. Sounds like Pride is soon to be no more.

    On the other hand I think it's funny how Pride as a brand is been deaded, but now that the talent pool of Pride is coming over to the UFC, Pride is owning shit.

    I didn't watch the conference, that is pretty cool to hear...I would have to assume they would be unified after that, it wouldn't make sense otherwise

    Man, I hope that after the Randy/Gonzaga match they do with Fedor what they just did with Dan.

    Its similar, but in reality completely different.

    It is going to be a crazy situation. Either way you are going to have one guy hold both belts for a decent amount of time. I guess when this all gets situated they will have a fight where only one belt is at stake or make the champ pick what organization he wants to stay in and then have a weightclass gp for the next champ :x::x:

    I can see the light heavy weight belt bouncing around from person to person over the next year or so.

    That shit is so dumb..They need to start crackin out more fights. Im sick of having to wait a whole month to see some new fights, especially now that Prides pretty much non-existant. With all this new talent comin in from PRIDE they need to start scheduling more events, like 2 a month would be sick.

    Maybe once the HBO deal is all figured out well be seeing alot more UFC events.

    I could see them getting rid of the "UFC Light Heavyweight" belt and changing it to "World Light Heavyweight" belt

    i mean they do have alot of stuff going on they have been doing a little more then one pay per view a month its like 14 a year. Im also happy that they have alot more fight nights theres one every month now so we get two fights a month the only thing is Id like them to have the fight nights work like the ppvs work. A real main event not a title fight or anything but some more decent fights. Like have the number one contender fights as the main event for the fight nights or have tournaments in the work for contendership in the fight nights. Something that will make it a little more interesting

    They may be having a couple more events a year but now that we lost all the PRIDE events it really doesnt feel that way.
