HUGE sports news: UFC and Pride FC to merge!

March 27, 2007

Ultimate fighting fans, you’re the big winner today.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has bought Pride FC, a rival group, for about $70M, according to ESPN.com.  The UFC, now in charge of both rosters of talent, will hold “mega-fights” between both sides’ champions.

So, can we expect a huge pay-per-view at the Coliseum?  Bring out the live lions and tigers!  And some badgers spleens and wolf nipple chips, please!   (Monty Python reference there…)

Last year, UFC cracked $200 million in PPV revenue, putting it on par with World Wrestling Entertainment Inc., according to the story.

    Pride is going to kick some ass. Wanderlei Silva is still #1, he will beat all UFC fighters. They could even give him 2 matches in the same day.

    LOL@ “Pride is going to kick some ass.”

    Like Heath Herring? Or maybe Cro-Cop? Or like any of the other Pride losers that have come over to UFC and figured out maybe UFC isn’t so light after all? LOL
