- Reports surfaced yesterday stating the Fertitta brothers have purchased PRIDE FC for an estimated $65 million. Dave Meltzer has released a message saying there may have been an 11th hour fall apart once again.

Regarding all the Pride rumors, we’ve heard so much in recent days. Where there’s smoke there is fire, but Pride has been close to sold so many times that I don’t count on anything, particularly since sources have heard about an 11th hour fall apart once again. The funny thing is, in Japan, the belief is it is about to be sold, but not to the Fertittas. But in Japan the expectation is something will break at the next show.
