    Fedor's manager is there also, so hopefully we will get some clarification on that.

    I also want to know what kind of MMA commision they have started

    I'm still a little nervous about this, but if it opens the door for "Mega Fights" that we've all been wanting to see, then that is a good thing... I have been a huge PRIDE fan for the last couple of years, and I just hope that Zuffa doesn't bastardize it...

    I'm glad they bought it, probably better than the others who were in the bidding.

    I'd rather see the Fertitas buying Pride instead of the WWF(or whatever it's called today). I think this could turn out great for the sport. No more of the bs saying this guy is so much better than this guy, well now we get to see the super fights, who cares if it's in the cage or in the ring. Finally having a unified title will be amazing.

    I hope they do 2 things though with pride: No more non title matches and no more freak show fights. Those are the 2 biggest gripes I've always had with Pride fights. Also, put Tim Sylvia in the ring with Mark Hunt, I want to see the samoan KTFO of big tim.

    Looks like MMA is going to have NJAC/NSAC rules:

    yeah, I guess not. I wish they'd get NSAC/NJAC to allow Knees to a downed opponent. I really don't care one way or another about stomps/soccer kicks

    This even made the front of espn.com and it says Chuck vs Rampage is for May. Is this the first mention of this or has this been out for awhile?

    One thing that made me happy was them mentioning Fedor multiple times, meaning most likely that he isnt going anywhere

    I caught that too... Surely UFC/Zuffa/PRIDE would pay whatever $$ it takes since he is really the crown jewel of this purchase...
