Five Ounces Of Pain Report: PRIDE Sold to Fertittas!?

By Sam Caplan

Normally I don't post rumors of Pride being sold to the UFC because those rumors usually surface on message forums at least once week. However, reports indicate that Greg Savage of said on Sherdog Radio that Pride has been acquired by Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta (primary owners of the UFC) for $65 million. An announcement could be made on Wednesday. Interestingly enough, Zach Arnold of is claiming that Pride CEO Nobuyuki Sakakibara is traveling to Las Vegas in the next couple of days. Zach's report mentioned nothing about a buyout.
