Although Ive been following mmamania for a long time, I never made an account., I used the website to eep up with my mma news, and read plenty of fanposts. I never considered making an account. Until I thought of this amazing concept that I'am about t reveal. Its such a revolutionary idea for mma that I'am forced to create an acount for my favorite mma website, and to reveal my self created discovery.
Last night i was remmenising about the old pride day and just how great it was and how the fighters fought differently. At the same time i love ufc, pride is unforgetable. It would be so cool to see the old pride fighters there again, and some new ones that would fit with it, like jose aldo. I sat there trying to figure out a possibe way that pride could come back, than i realized that the ufc bought pride, which is why it ended ofcoarse. UFC just ended their second league, the WEC to aquire their smaller weight classes. Well since they basically own Pride, why dont they put it back into play. But ofcourse the UFC would have to stay. So that brought me to another question, how would there be room for both Pride and UFC to be together owned by the same company, which is Zuffa. I found the answer myself. As much as everyone resents the WWE for it being scripted and fake fighting, you have to admit they structured it well and unique. You will see wat i mean by structured. They started off as one organazation, the WWF. Eventually they divided into to seperate leagues, Raw and Smackdown. But they found a way to relate the two with eachother. So i say to myself, why doesnt Zuffa do that with UFC and Pride. They will be more unique than the Raw and Smackdown combination. Both Raw and Smackdown used rings. Pride ofcourse has its trademark with the rin like UFC has its, with the cage. When a certain fighter is out of contention in lets say their UFC division, they could be switched into pride to try to contend in that league to see how he would fair with those fighters. Also annually, they could have a trade off where they let thhe fans decide which fighter switches leagues. I honestly believe that this is an idea that would be taken seriously by Dana White and the Fertittas. They know everyone loved Pride.
In no way Iam trying to turn the UFC into a WWE type of promotion. Its simply the structure they had with two different leagues. UFC and Pride together would be any MMA Fans dream. I really hope this gets to the UFC's ears. Please let me know what you guys...and girs think about this. Its my first fanpost so dont hesitate to comment. Thank you!
