It wouldn't have had anything to do with PRIDE. If anything it would have been affiliated with K1/Heros.
Zuffa might have made a private deal with Sudo, as he's so respected in the industry, but it's still pretty weak.
My reaction is similar to the PRIDE/UFC unification belts. It's just stupid.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
