I hope Barnett gets relicensed and everything is taken care of.I'd hate to see Barnett pull a Kimo.Looks to be pretty good.I think Pride is trying to brake away from Japan since they lost there TV deal and all the other scandal surrounding them over there.
You know where tickets will be available ? Like ticketmaster ?
Shogun and Fedor...im happy.
sounds great, cant wait. i hope the coming of pride forces ufc to sign better, and more international fighters, and have better ppv's, and maybe one day a champ vs champ ppv. this could be the start.
i hope the uk will be able to order this or at least get to watch it on some channel
Where's Wanderlei on this card? If he is not fighting Chuck, shouldn't they put him in this?:confusedsmilie: I am happy about Fedor , though.
looking at those fighters i`m glad i passed on the $50 nose bleed seats!
replays alone and a short run to the john is worth 50 dollars.
i want something close.
wait till the las vegas fans get a load of cro cop!!! prides taken over ladies!!!
I thinkn they might hold the record for biggest MMA even attendence (either them or K-1) as they have had 90,000+ people in a stadium for an event, UFC is doing what 20,000 people per event?
PRIDE is not worried about the scandal or the Fuji TV deal falling through, they have always gotten by with or without TV support.
