there its 100% official....
holy crap this just sunk in.
OMG X 1 billion
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
Confirmed on Pride's website
Jesus fucking christ, that would be amazing
And apparently Don Frye is fighting at Pride 34
paste more sherdog articles
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.
I still want to see my Hong Man Choi/Giant Silva vs. Butterbean/Zulu dream MMA tag team match! ... with James Thompson as the special guest referee...
you need to be a booker.
Looks like MMA is going to have NJAC/NSAC rules:
oh snap no more soccer kicks?
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...
It's now announced on UFC.com as well
i wish they at least keep knees to head on ground
This is so awesome.
Why wasn't Jerry Millen at the press conference?
He was too busy getting lunch for Dana White in his new role as his personal bitch
