"[The UFC has] already eclipsed boxing in terms of pay-per-view dollars. The real question is can it eclipse football!? Can it eclipse soccer? I think the answer to that is yes. It's a more exciting sport. The UFC has had problems in the past getting guys from overseas. There's not just the UFC, there's also Pride, a huge international organization that a lot of people believe has the best fighters in a couple of different weight classes. But now the UFC purchased Pride. We're going to get to see incredible match-ups now that weren't available just six months to a year ago."
-- UFC ringside announcer Joe Rogan discusses the bright future of mixed martial arts now that the Fertitta brothers purchased PRIDE FC as told to the NYPost.com.
