about Pride being bought by the UFC.
I wonder if there is any truth to it. haha
pfft I don't read sherdog you bastard. Take it back!
it was the underground on mma.tv
sounds crazy, the monopoly could be bad for the fans but a lot of good match-ups could happen too
Bettormma was the first reporting it. I dont know what to believe. If you had told me a month ago that Mirko was coming to UFC, I would have said the same thing
And Bas also said in a very recent interview that UFC was probably goign to buy Pride
rumors are rumors
I auctually hope this one is true. Only goodcan come from this
Yeah, like paying $100 for a damn PPV.
Oh, and can anyone tell me why everyone here hates on Sherdog? I always go on there to check stats or see news/interviews. If not Sherdog, what other (free) sites should I be checking out?
i don't know. I don't really bother getting into MMA news because I don't care much. I just want to know who's fighting and when the event is
and no, no good will come of Pride being bought by the UFC, and NO, it won't happen anyway.
They are showing clips from Pride fights in the opening movie
i dont see how they could get the capital for it. pride may be going through a rough spot, but its not exactly a small buisness
I don't know....UFC's been rakin in the cash the last few years, plus the low salaries for fighters, not to mention that the fertittia's had mad loot to begin with, this could be for real. Better chances on it being a bunch of BS though...
I have heard this from multiple sources. I still don't believe it, and I don't want to believe it, but...
Most people don't hate Sherdog. Sherdog is a really great site. Its the forums that are looked down upon.
People posting random rumors, "news", etc with no sources.
Constant UFC is better, no PRIDE is better, no UFC is better... ... ...
More trolls than :06:
I could go on...
"Sherdog.com: There were strong rumors last week that you were very close to selling to the UFC. Do you have a comment on this?
Sakakibara: It’s just a rumor. I haven’t had any close conversation with (UFC president) Dana White so far. But since the Fertitta brothers bought the UFC we’ve had a very close relationship and we have had friendly conversation. We’re just trying to come up with the idea on how we can make this sport grow. That’s our main concern. I think that is where the rumors are coming from. We’re constantly having a conversation with the UFC. "
i knew youd get butthurt hearing about this
i wont have it either, and i hope it does not happen
Mirko was saying that he hadnt signed with UFC, and come to find out Pride didnt even make him an offer.
I visit the site quite a bit for news and to download "The Beatdown"... I can't stand the forums though... I
Beatdown is a great show.
The Savage Dog show...not so much.
