The following notes are courtesy of Chris Howie:

The following are a few notes from the Dana White/Mirko CroCop conference call held today. These notes are only that of which involves PRIDE's future under the Zuffa ownership:

-Dan Henderson will not be stripped of his titles, but they don't know how they're going to handle him being a champion in two divisions actively, yet.

-Mauricio "Shogun" Rua will not be moving over to the side. He will remain a PRIDE fighter.

-There won't be anymore Super Heavyweight matches, freak-show matches or huge mismatches anymore.

-Frank Trigg is gone. He won't be an announcer for PRIDE anymore. They are still looking for a new broadcast team.

-Doesn't know what's going on with Gary (Jerry) Millen or how he will be handled.

-Feels Josh Barnett doesn't like him, as he's alluded to in the media, but still wants him to fight for the new PRIDE.

This is only some of the stuff mentioned today. Keep checking MMANews.com as we'll have very detailed recaps with anything newsworthy from the conference call.

I don't think hendo will have those belts for long, the 185 perhaps but not the 205

Better not fuck with Shogun

Super heavyweights and freak show matches own
I read this thing on pride's site that said some 600lb sumo guy lost to. um Emmanuel Yarborough lost to Daijyu Takase by submisson

He better keep Josh Barnett

Donít forget Hendo is world class on the ground and his stand up is equally as good that should be an explosive fight it only makes since that it is next! Hard to pick that fight for me!

Lets hope he donít turn into Don King! He loves calling the shots, but it should be ranking that determines the next contender for any title not who Dana thinks is ready!
