pride/k-1/inoki in competition?

Is PRIDE/K-1/Inoki in competition with each other? If so, does this help the sport? Like Inoki tried to sign some of the PRIDE fighters to fight for his company. With PRIDE threatening there fighters if they fight for some other company.

sinceno one got paid off the last Inoki show, I'd say he's out of the running


Pride is in competition with new japan/Inoki, and inoki/new japan and k-1 have some alliance.
