    I think it was a great move!!. The UFC is overated, also they do not let their fighters compete in any other organization, so all you fans think that the UFC is the top dog are wrong!!. Keep in mind your light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" jackson and Heavyweight Interm champion Antonio R. Nogera also came from Pride which was based in japan. In closing if you remember way back when UFC figthers were going over to japan and getting their ass kicked!.
