The Japanese do it longer

MMAWeekly is reporting that PRIDE's first US event in October is going to be a staggering 4 hours long, one hour longer than The Wedding Crashers and other MMA pay per views. This is an interesting move, considering only two matches have been announced so far: Fedor Enemaboots vs Mark Coleman and Kevin Randleman vs Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. Experts theorize that the Fedor/Coleman fight may have no time limit, giving Coleman room to execute his "Lay and Pray" technique over the course of two hours. Others beleive this extra hour is to show the post-event parking lot brawl between Hammerhouse and whatever the fuck Shogun's gang calls themselves.

Still up in the air is the participation of Mirko CroCop and Wanderlai Silva. Let's hope PRIDE follows HERO's actions and pushes the two into competition, complete with special 'crutch, cast and wheelchair' rules where neccessary.
