Who here thinks this announcement is spelling out Zuffa's decision to fold PRIDE? I was hoping not, but I think its pretty much inevitable at this point. Shogun? Big Nog? CroCop? and now Henderson? Yup....PRIDE is done.

Wow... I hate to agree with you... but after cancelling the LW GP and the influx of (in my jaded opinion) superior Pride talent to the UFC... yeah, the buyout seems more and more like Pride is over and it's a matter of "UFC or nothing".

I dont think Rampage will destro yHenderson, in fact i think Henderson may take it and if rampage does take it it will be a good fight, Hendo never goes down without a fight.

Or maybe they just want to put Pride under their belt like WEC. Like a farm league of sorts... not sure if that's better than killing it off completely though.

They are clearly watering down Pride by taking the best talent and putting them into the Octagon.

Whatever happened to the "superbowls" of MMA???

I think they'll keep it around, but I bet it'll be mostly Japanese fighters, and dude whos fighting styles wouldn't go over in the US, or would make the sport look bad.

Maybe Dana realized anytime he says "superbowl" on tv, he owes the NFL money.
