UFC buys Pride… cuz they can…

30 Mar

If you hadn’t heard already, UFC has acquired Pride FC in a undisclaimed 8 figure deal.  What does this mean for MMA?  Former Pride rules including soccer kicks, face stomps, and knees to the head while the opponent is on the ground shall be forever banished (booooo) as UFC inacts all MMA fights to abide by their precommissioned rules.  Pride fights shall still be held in a ring and UFC in their Octagon. 
     Amongst other things I worry about as an MMA fan is the infamous UFC Bullshit stepping stone matchups spilling over to PRIDE…  The worst however will be PRIDE fights being banished from YouTube such as UFC fights were, and only available for download ala carte at a few bucks a piece…  An MMA Superbowl event is expected, but I’d rather have seen Pride buy UFC…
