UFC Quick Quote: MMA fans the real winners today?

New, comments

"Someone else will run Pride. I will come over to Japan with all my guys and kick their asses as I've waited to do for seven years. I think that when fighters fight, obviously money is great, as well as everything that goes along with it, but at the end of the day, it's about legacy. Pride and the UFC have all the best fighters in world in all the different weight classes. Finally, we're going to find out who the best fighter in the world is. And whoever wins that is going to be looked at as the best heavyweight, best light-heavyweight. That's what's going to come out of this. The fans win, the organizations win and the fighters win."
