Do I think DW wants to have anything of that nature to compete with the UFC? Not on your life.
Perhaps another promotion can continue to grow into something similar to Pride, as certain other JMMA orgs employ 'international rules'...but JMMA is in trouble, and it is largely due to the aura of Pride/Yakuza corruption and the fact that Zuffa is the major power in the sport, where the unified rules prevail.

I guess the question is... how does calling an event or org "Pride", make it the Pride you are talking about in this thread? Is the title of Pride more important than the fighters that made up Pride? If the answer is no, what are we even talking about?

not that there's anything wrong with that.
and he'd have for a logo, the old pride fist disappearing into an bum, with the rainbow colours as a background.

It does seem to fit the plans that dana was talking about and it would be easier to promote a fallen but beloved brand. so what are your guys thoughts on regional circuts?
