ufc 183

Cesar Gracie has a different headline for the upcoming UFC 183 main event between Nick Diaz and Anderson Silva.

The last fight of Pride FC.

Pride closed up shop in 2007 after 10 years running out of Japan. They were purchased by Zuffa, with many fighters coming to the UFC.

Diaz fought in Pride in 2007, battling Takanori Gomi to a no-contest due to the fighter failing a post-fight drug test. He had originally one the bout via submission.

That would be the one and only time he competed in the promotion.

Silva, meanwhile, went 3-2 during two stints with Pride, including a knockout win over Carlos Newton.
