According to Sherdog.com, the purchase of Pride FC by the Zuffa LLc has been finalized. The deal was supposed to close on May 1, but that day came and passed with no word. Sherdog was first to report on the original deal, so I am pretty confident that this rumor is indeed true.
However, two sources tell Sherdog.com that the deal has in fact been finalized
Earlier in the week reports of a class action lawsuit filed against Pride FC parent company Dream Stage Entertainment, on behalf of a number of Pride fighters surfaced. Dana White on Thursday denied all knowledge of the class action suit.
