Default Re: Pride Fighting Championship possibly sold?

there's a lot of articles out there that would do a better job of explaining than me, but apparently Pride had major Yakuza ties, interaction with the big boys. It is widely recognized as the reason why FUJI TV dropped them.

there's even rumours that the Pride President before Sakikibara was suicided by the Yakuza.

it's mostly conjecture though and it should be over now with new Zuffa management.
