Pride Grand Prix Brachets[edit]

While looking back at the past pride champions and grand prix's i noticed that there are no brackets available for viewing for 3 of the 8 tournaments. the 2004 Heavyweight Grand Prix, the 2005 Welterweight Grand Prix, and the 2005 Lightweight Grand Prix do not have any brackets available for viewing on wikipedia. I feel that tournament brackets are a necessity for people to easily follow the tournament/Grand Prix accuratly. If someone could create such a bracket, not necessarily on this page, it would be great. In my opinion the brackets should be created on the page of the event in which the tournament finals took place at. (talk) 22:42, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

UFC/Pride middleweight titles unified?[edit]

I'm not sure why that statement is in the article. I think the UFC called Henderson "the Pride Champion" at the time of the fight but the UFC has never physically presented AS with the Pride belt, as the Pride organization didn't exist at the time.

I don't think it makes sense to call that a title unification match, as Pride and the UFC operate by different rules, thus I don't see how you could transfer the Pride belt in a UFC style match.

I highly doubt this statement is supported by any "official" statement from Pride as Pride no longer existed by the time the bout occurred.
