RE: NEVER DIE: THE RISE AND FALL OF PRIDE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Pride was a brilliant show, far better than the UFC will ever be.

Even though it was controlled by the Yakuza, most of the big fights were legit, and the entertainment level was off the charts.

Something happened which caused Pride to run low in dollars, and that's when ZUFFA swooped in and took it over.

I wrote an article for the Fightsport News Blog, about how ZUFFA sent a mob guy to Japan to take control of Pride with the view to holding more shows in Japan. They set him up in an office in Tokyo and he was going to secure the Japanese MMA market for ZUFFA. He was quickly run out of town by the Yakuza and this was the nail in the coffin for Pride.

ZUFFA then decided to shut down the brand and never promote it again.

I have to admit, receiving a rep thing doesn't mean anything to me either, but I do like to give them out when I think of it, to people that made posts that I appreciate or enjoy. I don't do it often, so if someone has received a rep vote from me, it is actually meant as a compliment for something that I think deserves to be acknowledged.

And, this thread of yours, fits into that category.

And yet SEG managed to pull of a UFC show there in 1997, and again in 2000, without anyone being killed.

It would be another 12 years before ZUFFA would hold an event there, after buying Pride and doing who knows what closed door deals in order to have protection.

Even now, the last time they dared to go to Japan, was 2017, and there has only been 5 UFCs in Japan since ZUFFA acquired the UFC in 2001.

Seems strange when you consider that the Japanese are probably the most knowlegable group of MMA fans in the world, with a much deeper understanding of the sport than the average western UFC fan.

MMA has been seriously degraded in Japan.

it's not like how it used to be.
