    I read that. I liked the part where the guy talked about wanting to try and make PRIDE shows on primetime cable a regular thing. Granted they will be edited down to two hours, but that's still a huge step for mainstreaming MMA. And just damned cool.

    here's an article I found from mmaweekly.com.



    During Pride's post-fight press conference in Japan, MMAWeekly's Scott Petersen asked Dream Stage Entertainment president Nobuyuki Sakakibara about the company's plans to air the next Pride Bushido event in the United States on Fox Sports Net. Sakakibara replied, "The August 26th Bushido will be aired in the United States during primetime on [Sunday] August 27th... it will be edited into a two-hour show."

    This confirms previous reports by MMAWeekly that the next Pride Bushido show would air on Fox Sports Net instead of pay-per-view in the United States.

    A specific timeslot has not been determined, but "primetime television" in the United States is defined as anytime between 7:00 PM and 11:00 PM on Sunday nights (or anytime between 8:00 PM and 11:00 PM on Monday through Saturday).

    While it has not yet been determined whether similar deals will be in place for future Pride Bushido events after the one in August, Sakakibara did say that he hopes to make the Bushido deal a long-term arrangement and not just a one-time thing. Sakakibara said, "We have a plan to make it a regular occurrence, so that Fox Sports can run Pride Bushido regularly."

    The next Pride Bushido event will take place in Japan on August 26th and will feature the quarter-finals of Pride's 183-pound Grand Prix.

    The eight remaining fighters are Dan Henderson, Paulo Filho, Denis Kang, Kazuo Misaki, Amar Suloev, Ryo Chonan (who might have to withdraw due to injury), Akihiro Gono, and Gegard Mousasi. All of those fighters won in the opening around of the tournament on June 4th except for Henderson, who got a first-round bye due to the fact that he was injured and had previously won Pride's eight-man 183-pound Grand Prix in 2005.

    It won't be on PPV at all if it's on FSN. It will save money, but it will be edited to shit, and most likely won't see all the matches.

I just found this odd because there are always a bunch of promos for the next PPV event, and all they mentioned was the next round of the OWGP in September and the US Debut in October. I'm thinking that Pride and Fox Sports Net have come to agreement to show the Bushido 12 event on FSN for cable subscribers.

    what's your guys take on this?
    I think it's awesome if it's really going to happen.
