Nah man, Pride still sells out stadiums, you have to remember they have had the best fihgters in the world for as long as they have been an organization, well before the TV deal. They still had Kerr, Rickson, Sak, Igor, etc. and were still able to pay their fighters a lot of money so they will always be ok. Look at what they are expecting, 100,000 people and seats as high as $700.00 each.
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.
