for example ufc bought pride, and they plan to hold a yearly superbowl of mma event with ufc vs pride

i dont think thats the plan.....almost all the big names have been signed and fought in ufc, with gomi and fedor left (wande is set to fight in dec). from what i read there will not be a "superbowl" of MMA because they dont plan on running cards in japan under the pride name because they cant get a tv deal ect. all the names will be ufc fighters.....

I hope it is possible to have agreements of some kind between organizations. I remember the first EliteXC show was cross promoted with Strikeforce. Strikeforce benefited by the exposure from being on Showtime and EliteXC benefited from the use of the Strikeforce-contracted Frank Shamrock. And later they had a joint PPV where both companies titles were defended.

Interpromotional sounds very interesting, however i did not hear anything about it.
Doubt it will be in, but i would like to see it for sure. Really like the superbowl idea
