According to a post UFC 71 press conference Dana White announced that the Zuffa’s acquisition of Pride has been finalized. Sherdog broke the story last week, but the UFC made it official.

Weâ“‚¬“„¢re still trying to figure out this whole Pride and UFC thing. The deal is done. We acquired the company yesterday or the day beforeâ“‚¬Â¦. Talking about all the Pride stuff, weâ“‚¬“„¢re going to work on that stuff over the next [weeks] now that the deal is officially closed. You canâ“‚¬“„¢t start running a business when you donâ“‚¬“„¢t own it yet. Weâ“‚¬“„¢ve owned it for two days. I know we made the big announcement [on March 27], but it might have been a little premature. The deal wasnâ“‚¬“„¢t done yet. The deal was pending, but we were far enough along where we felt comfortable announcing the deal. Now that itâ“‚¬“„¢s closed two days ago, weâ“‚¬“„¢ll get that straightened out
