    sounds crazy, the monopoly could be bad for the fans but a lot of good match-ups could happen too :hs:

    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

    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 :bigthumb:



    and no, no good will come of Pride being bought by the UFC, and NO, it won't happen anyway.

    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...

    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: :mamoru:
    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. "

    :dunno: Mirko was saying that he hadnt signed with UFC, and come to find out Pride didnt even make him an offer.
