This is total rumor so dont crucify me if its b.s but a friend in vegas says he is close to a ufc matchmaker(js). and that the proposal on the table between pride and ufc is like this. To help pride in the u.s market the october show called Pride invasion (if all is worked out will be)
Fedor v/s arlovski
Shogun v/s tito
Hendo v/s tanner
Ninja v/s forrest
Nog v/s vera.
This is what he say is proposed. Pride brass whats some household names to introduce their product.
The Ufc show will be called worlds collide and will envolve into a Super bowl, wrestlemania type yearly event. the matches proposed.
Wand v/s liddell
Sylvia v/s mirko
Franklin v/s baroni
Hughes v/s gomi
Monsoon v/s fajita.
This is all from a friend i vegas and it may be B.S but he swears by th info he says the details are being hammered out.
If this happens it is truly a MMA fans dream come true.
Dont kill the messenger its all hearsay.
The news that arlovski needs surgery kind of shots the pride main event in the foot but will have to wait and see.
If it's true that's two great cards. But I'm not gonna hold my breath for Pride vs. UFC fights on the Pride in US card.
I highly doubt all that comes off. Let's not get expectations to the point where this thing is a disappointment. Just the fact that they're working together and one or two matches seem like a lock already is enough to make me a happy MMA fan.
those sound great, except Fedor/AA. AA needs to prove something and if he fought Fedor he'd lose and get pushed back even further. also, the UFC card(minus crocop/sylvia) sucks compared to the Pride card
You have to laugh at this kind of thing.
For years everyone dreams of a Pride/UFC crossover when Silva faces Liddle, now we (potentially) have it, it's not enough. We want Fedor Vs Arlovski & Tito Vs Shogan.
Whatever they settle on is fine by me as long as Liddle & Silva fight in November!
this has to be the most bullshit rumor ive ever heard coming from a wrestling fan who knows nothing about mma
people need to quit listening to their "friends"
Thats some b s . Like someone would want to see Tito and Tanner get beat down. All that matters is that we get to see Wand and Chuck.
The thing is that Pride might need some help from UFC now, to get into the US market. With all this shit with yakuza they might need some help from a foe to recover.
