Jerry Millen, the PRIDE USA Vice President, has spoken up to GracieFighter.com about the possible sale of PRIDE. Here’s what he had to say:
“It’s bullshit. You can’t beleive what you read on the internet and as a matter of fact I just got off the phone with Japan and unless I’m being lied to Pride has not been sold and is not being sold to anyone, especially to Zuffa. We are in the process of making some ground breaking deals that will be bringing in large sums of revenue to the company and making it stronger than ever.”
This would not be the first time there has been serious communication problems involving PRIDE and its potential sale as rumors like these have been swirling for a while and each time have proven to be false so far.
