    I don't mean in the way Josh Barnett meant (i.e. the spirit of the organization is dead now or whatever)

    No event dates or rumours on MMA Weekly, very little news about Pride fighters, etc...

    So much needs to happen with the LW GP, the MW situation, Dan's belts, HW, etc..

    Hopefully the deal goes through fast and they have the LWGP and some other events :x:

    I can smile when its raining.
    Well apparently the contracts in PRIDE were either gentleman's agreements or non-exclusive. Either way we know how the UFC and Zuffa feels about non-exclusive contracts.

    Apparently there are also problems with the way their contracts are structured and whether or not they would hold up in the US or under Zuffa. Thats only because they'd worry about whether or not the fighters or their contracts are transferable.

    Thats just from listening to sherdog radio so I'm not sure how truthful that all is.
