Mainstream Japanese MMA, namely PRIDE has always had ties to pro-wrestling, not sure why the Cro Cop vs. Wanderlei announcement was any difference.


If you think that was bad, you have to think all of the UFC drama and fake feuds are just as bad.

xD...I'm a fan of PRIDE and DREAM. Mi first mma event it was Pride 28 in 2004. But, i never liked it the wrestling show (The Boss in the ring, The Good, The Bad).

Sorry my poor english...only speak spanish.

Loved Pride but Dream was just OK to me.
