In the wake of yesterday's merger between the UFC and the WEC, Strikeforce's quest to carve out an equal space in the MMA world just got even more unlikely
I know he's not saying that SF is equal, but it needs to be said that they're not. They're competitive, but not equal. And I think Coker shouldn't try to be equal, but rather, focus on remaining competitive.
Which means doing everything the author states and working DREAM into the equation as well.

Conversely, I see Bellator guiding any union, and turning Strikefarce into Strikeforce of old, just in a larger platform.
What I would hope
, is that Bellator serves as a model to fix both SF's and DREAM's concerns, and serves healthy alternatives, not jury-rigged and inconsistent orgs.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
