    So i guess you`d rather watch Tim Sylvia? Oops he was the UFC`s heavy champ and was busted for steroid abuse.I mean Barnett is only the worlds recognised number 3:patsch. And im sure you`d rather see Ken Shamrock go at it than a solid vet like Frye:rofl

    The offer is on the table for Barnett, its just a matter of him leaving Japanese prowrestling style of MMA promotion that he loves for the UFC. While Sylvia can't hold a candle to Barnetts jock, at least Sylvia served his suspension and came back, Barnett left the country and went to New Japan Pro Wrestling.

    Just the press conference when Dana White tells us how great it is and how they are going to put some great fights on at PRIDE and everything is rosie.

    You know they are lying through their back teeth and were just waiting for the dust to settle to rip PRIDE down piece by piece.You know PRIDE, at that moment is dead and buried and is never coming back.
    Bas and Mauro and Quadros,the funny skits,the amazing opening ceremonies,the screeching lady,the Grand Prix's,the fights,the fighters,the respectful crowds who don't boo,the PRIDE theme,Takada in the g-string banging the massive drum,The oversized checks,the trophies...the hot PRIDE girls.The respect,the honour,the pride.

    All gone. Forever.

    sakakibara: "this is the beginning of something bigger than we've ever known"

    More like a nightmare...Pride is ****ing dead now...
    Sure , you can't blame it all on dana white , since the Yakuza scandal started it all...

    but **** , white and the fertittas should've kept their promesses...instead , they just backstabed everyone including the fans.

    After watching this I don't even care about seeing Fedor in the ufc anymore..
    **** them!...He should either go to K1 or stay in bodog...**** them!...it would be too much of a privilege to have this guy too...

    Man if I had the money , if I was a multi millionaire , I would've saved this ****ing miracle organisation...It was a blessing for mma. Something so fantastic never should've went down the toilet like that...what a pathetic ending of a fantastic era.

    Totally agree. Im behind you 100%. The demise of PRIDE is worst thing that could have happened to MMA. You watch folks the writings on the wall..

    Yeah, it's a bit sad but all good things have to come to end sometime.
