After days of speculation that Zuffa LLC would be breaking up Pride Fighting Championship, the Japaneses online newspaper Nikkan Sports is reporting that Pride FC is set to return on August 18th. The event will be held at the Saitama Super Arena, the same building that hosted so many past Pride events. The show is slated to be a Japanese fighter showcase featuring Hidehiko Yoshida. Zuffa LLC purchased Pride from DSE earlier this year, but not much has been mentioned on what they plan to do with the organization. Many of the big name fighters already came over to the UFC including, Dan Henderson, Mirko Cro Cop, Antionio Rodrigo Noguiera and Rampage Jackson.
