I hope so. I mean having all the top fighters in one promotion can only mean better fights and more entertaining PPV's.

Couture is coming out of retirement. The announcement and fight details will be officially made on Inside the UFC on Thursday night. Speculation is that the fight is against Sylvia.

Not the greatest event but if anyone is interested Cro Cop's debut and almost every other UFC 67 is free on Croatian web (legally). It's not in English but so what, it's a fight. }:-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I've been hearing this rumor too. Still no official word yet, though. If this happens, I wonder if they would go to one singluar format? (ie, ring type, round length, scoring system, fight rules etc)

I think it might be cool if they kept both leagues separate, but once a year had a championship that put Pride's opponents up against UFC's and which ever country hosted the event would determine which rules were used. :-?

My guess is that that is the way it will play out if it happens: ring in Asia and Eastern Europe, cage in Western Europe and the Americas. And Cro Cop has already talked about taking the UFC belt to Shockwave '08 to fight Fedor. When asked about it, Dana didn't confirm or deny (possibly because Mirko doesn't have the belt yet)... he just kind of grinned evily. ;-)

For what it's worth, Sakakibara was at the UFC event the other night.
