LOS ANGELES, California — Three more matches were announced today to round out the fight card for PRIDE FC: FINAL CONFLICT, scheduled for November 9th, 2003 from the Tokyo Dome in Japan.

In a reserve bout for the middleweight tournament, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu legend and former UFC champion Murilo Bustamante will be taking on PRIDE FC superstar Dan Henderson. Bustamante is coming off of a close split decision loss to Quinton Jackson at TOTAL ELIMINATION in what many considered the fight of the night.

In the event of an injury to one of the tournament participants, the winner of Bustamante/Henderson will step in.

In the second announced match, it will be a battle of super heavyweights as Gary "Big Daddy" Goodridge takes on UFC veteran and former King of the Cage champion Dan "The Bull" Bobish.
