There are more details leaking out in regard to Pride FC Worldwide Holdings (a.k.a. Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta, the majority owners of the UFC) filing a lawsuit in Clark County (Nevada) court last Friday against Dream Stage Entertainment, Dream Stage Holdings and DSE president Nobuyuki Sakakibara.

The Fertittas’ suit makes claims of being defrauded millions of dollars from the sale of Pride FC and Pride Bushido. So, what does that mean, you ask? Well, is one site that has delved into some specifics:

Dream Stage was supposed to go through a background check and drug testing to ensure compliance with the regulatory requirements of the Fertittas’ gaming license in Nevada.

Operative words: GAMING LICENSE. I really don’t know how I can stress that enough. GAMING LICENSE.

It also looks like the situation could escalate further in short order, according to

A source close to DSE told on Tuesday that Sakakibara was preparing his own suit against the Fertittas for breach of contract stemming from the decision to shut Pride down last October.

Perhaps the UFC vs. PRIDE feud isn’t over after all?

You know, it seems like both sides in the deal are unhappy. Why not an even exchange? Zuffa gets their money back and DSE gets PRIDE back?

Or maybe they could do the whole bizzarro dream concept on bad TV shows where someone is shown waking up and everything that took place in the past three episodes suddenly never really happened?
