Its being discussed over on Sherdog that the announcement by Trigg that Pride signed someone under another organization's nose that would make everyone shit their pants was actually Vera fighting Wand on Pride's next USA card. That fight is now filled with Hendo which is a bit underwhelming.
Trigg apparently now admits that the deal fell through. Triggs shilling for Pride is almost as annoying as his announcing.
Nonetheless, this adds an interesting wrinkle to the situation. That along with Brandon's appearance at the Showtime conference certainly didn't earn him any style points with Dana.
Not real sure if the Sherdog thread is all bullshit or just part but it smacks of the truth.
Frankly, I think that both sides are doing what they should and that is getting the best deal for themselves.
