    Yeah I think its a great idea, but the apparent way he is talking would lead me to belive the ufc would not be so inclined to allow it, unless they have never watched pride (which i belive dana white as acted like he knows nothing about fedor) or dont know what is going on.

    im sure Pride wants something new to allow for new cash flow, but its like announcing a hostile takeover....the party being taken over usually will do all it can to stop it and in this case all they have to do is not let fighters fight.

    Yah right Dana would let this happen, but then again, the risk he is taking by having Chuck fight Wandarlei is enormous. It also depends on what kind of contract there is inplace between Pride and UFC, maybe they have a say 10 exchange deal? Who knows. To me it seems that Pride is trying to move to the US. US' MMA market is exloding, where as in Japan the market is huge, but its slowing down, plus Pride has had some major set backs lately.

    Personally, I'm all for it. UFC vs Pride all the way.

    if nothing else healthy competition will FORCE UFC to improve in the areas they are lacking IE fighter roster quality and payscale

    those are all areas UFC seems to be lacking not pride.

    im Pride all they way, but I just done see who this can be beneficial for the UFC

    -pride in the american mainstream, NOT GOOD FOR THE UFC
    -pride payscale, WAY HIGHER THEN UFC
    -pride hw division (the marquee division for all fight sports), MUCH BETTER THEN UFC
    -overall stable of fighters, MUCH HIGHER QUALITY AND DEEPER

    in a scenario like this, competition will cause the UFC to either improve themselves to be able to compete, or they will fail and be destroyed :dunno: I'm sure dana doesn't want to go out of business, so hopefully he'll make the improvements necessary to stay alive.

    minotauro lost to fedor 3x. no one's fucking with him in the ufc either. Fuj and aleks could probably sweep the ufc too. who's left?? tra telligman, arlovski, silvia, monson. None of them stand a chance against any of the top 5 pride hws

    If I was to pick a UFC HW, it be Monson. Arlovski, hes holding back way too much. Sylvia, please, not a threat, tra who?

    My picks for UFC rep, GSP. Money on GSP, and Franklin.

    telligman's just an old fat fuck with a crushed chest from a car accident as a baby, contrary to the belief of some dumbass on this forum who tried to say he was born with only 1 pectoral muscle.

    It's not the fault of the guy who said it on here... I know where he got it from
    On one of the UFC shows (UFN probably) the announcer said that he was born that way, I remember it
