PRIDE comments on UFC

While Dana White was allegedly busy having security escort WFA President Jeremy Lappen out of the Mandalay Bay Events Center, PRIDE was busy posting a report on their web site about Vanderlei Silva’s appearance in the UFC octagon. PRIDE’s report clearly states “PRIDE x UFC” as a full-out promotional war, and raises the possibility of Kazuyuki Fujita working as a PRIDE representive in UFC on the same show as the proposed Chuck Liddell vs. Vanderlei Silva match.

The PRIDE HP report has comments from Nobuyuki Sakakibara. Sakakibara clearly states that he would like to see the winner of the Liddell/Silva fight be the first double-crown (PRIDE & UFC) champion — with the PRIDE Middleweight and UFC Light Heavyweight belts at stake. Additionally, Sakakibara claims that there is a possibility of UFC fighters working the 10/21 Thomas & Mack Center PRIDE show in Las Vegas.

  1. Ho-hum. Where’s Bischoff, Hogan, and the NWO?

  2. Lynchman says:

    In response to Goldman: Maybe Dana, Chuck and Rich Franklin can show up at the Pride show and spray paint “UFC” on the backs of Silva and Hendo.

  3. Royal B. says:

    I think Monson’s a bit too pudgy to be UFC Fedor though.
