Default Dana White Says No PRIDE Show

originally posted by armedpsycho
--------------------------------

The following is an excerpt from Dave Meltzer's news update from yesterday at WrestlingObserver.com regarding the rumors of PRIDE returning and holding a show in Japan in October

According to Dana White, the stories of a Pride show on 10/11 are as accurate as last week’s story about an August card. In other words, nothing to them at all no matter what is being said in Japan.

And PRIDE's future remains uncertain.

Hahaha!...Well , they sure have loads of freakshows (so did pride though)...and you know what? that **** can be forgiven cause pride also had the top talents...they had a bit of everything..

K1's Heros is not on par with what pride used to be but let's not ignore some of the talents they have or are going to get..
Kharitonov , alexander and maybe barnett are gonna fight over there...Lesnar may or may not stay with K1 but He's certainly top notch in the wrestling department....not a top mma fighter yet but...

They have kid yamamoto , Yoshihiro Akiyama..both are P4P top fighters...I don't know them all but they do have some exciting fighters here and there..

What is so important about keeping pride shows? Especially when they would be owned by the owners of UFC anyways.

better rules...
knees on the ground , soccer kicks , stomps , fighters are allowed to wear a Gi , or shoes... the action takes place in a ring...

their round system is better imo..
1rst round , 10 full minutes...2round = 5 minutes , same for round 3...

Way superior production , better intros , more seats...etc...hell even the pride fc theme is better than ufc's theme...everything about pride had something special..something better than ufc's format.

unfortunatley for them...this ****ing yakuza scandal ruined the entire company.

Yes the Yakuza scandal that was never proven and had no concrete evidence shown to back up the claim.
The TV station PRIDE was on took this newpaper journalist for his word and pulled PRIDE of the airwaves all together!

WTF is that all about? Not even a proper review or study to check out if it was true?
Insanity.

I know several people who fought in Pride, and they have been in trouble for quite some time. This was just the last straw which brought about the inevitable end of Pride. Obviously they weren't doing something right.
