Pride is gone 2007/12/14 13:30
As of earlier this year Zuffa(UFC) bought PrideFC out. They claimed to have intentions of keeping the promotion the same, but it never materialized. Although some of the fighters have Zuffa contracts, many were left out in the cold.

A new promotion on New Years Eve called Yarennoka! is the closest thing to Pride you can get. I'm not sure if it is a onetime deal or a full org. The card is pretty sick. It even features Fedor and many popular fighters.

My goal when I went to Japan was to see a Pride show. I was one year to late. My trip to Japan was still great.

Visit Sherdog.com for your MMA news. It should keep you up to date.

ok i see 2007/12/14 22:25
Thank you very much for the very detailed answer. It's now make more sence to me.
Actually it was also one of my wishes, to see a Pride show i real life. It's a fact that they made the best shows in the world, so i think it is a kind of shame that the UFC bought them out.
once again thanks for the information!

There may also be a show in march from what I've heard - using the same staff who put on Yarrenoke.

I've been to 2 Prides and was extremely disappointed to hear of it's demise.

Dreams 2008/2/14 12:00
FEG(K1), TBS, and former DSE(Pride) employees are teaming up and forming a new MMA promotion called Dreams. They had a major press conference and announced shows and dates.

Hopefully this will fill the Pride void.

I'm going to try and catch the late Sept. show. I hope it lives up to the hype.
