    They should hold Pride shows in Japan annually so fighters can juice then suck when the fight in the UFC. :mamoru:

    interesting, since they said they were going to keep both companies fighting as independent entities, with occasional superfights between champs of each organization. but i know we could all see this coming after the championship union fight of hendo and rampage. this will really suck if they start putting on bi-monthly paperviews just to get all the fighters into action.

    They said it but as soon as they started signing all the big names, I knew they weren't.

    They may have intended to but in the end you have the following situation.

    PRIDE contracts sucked so people could go fight anywhere.
    All the good/marketable fighters taken by the UFC.
    The rest feel slighted and go somewhere else to not fight for zuffa.
    You're left with Yoshida in PRIDE.

    so what ever happened to Saku fighting that other Jap? The last PRide show where Saku was all emo and Trigg said how these guys will finally fight.

    well it seemed that Saku was going to fight Tamura

    they are both in K-1 now though, and Tamura just lost to some not-so-hot karate guy

    I wonder what all those employees have been doing until now. They must have all been posting on Japan's OT.
