    Just like WWE buying WCW, i see good things and bad things.

    the Super Bowl idea should be great...champs vs champs.

    But what about those that dont like UFC, will they stay with Pride after their contract is over...and what about those that are banned from UFC/US MMA, will they be allowed to continue in Pride.

    and will another company try to step up to challenege UFC/Pride (there's others but not as big) like TNA has with WWE.


    My favorite fighter right now is Wanderlei Silva.

    This is absolutely going to make for some huge fights.

    My only complaint is that now they are probably going to have even more PPVs. I think even one a month is a bit much, and this month they have 2. Oh well, I will just have to start charging people to watch them at my house.

    Oh and Crocop for the win.

    I hope UFC learns something from how Pride does things. Like really respecting one's opponents, production values and showmanship. And get rid of the gawdawful UFC intro and music (the lame operatic music with the lamer gladiator intro).
