As much as I've got some vested personal interest in the success of the UFC through friends and acquaintances, I hope that the establishment of a rival organization is ultimately better for all fighters overall. Two organizations competing for fighters should result in higher pay for the fighters.
WFA isn't affiliated with PrideFC is it? I thought that Pride was planning to venture into the US market also.

I can't imagine them being affiliated with Pride in the least. Rampage was actually blasting the Pride management in a recent interview on Sherdog while talking about the IFL. But yeah I think those DSE guys are still wanting to make a move over to the states, they should too.
At any rate this card looks to be better than anything the UFC has had in the past few years. I already got my tickets.
