good fighters does not always me it will be a good cARD
This sucks every time a MMA promotion closes its doors we lose an opportunity to see new and exciting fights/fighters. Yes i agree that some of the fighters will end up on the big stage of the UFC and will prosper that is the bright side of this.
This means less fights to watch in the future. We all saw this coming but it still stinks.
The more options to watch MMA the better and now we have one fewer option that put together decent fights and cards.
good its about damn time
i hope bellator gets some good left overs because there's no way all the strikeforce guys can shine in the ufc some need to go to bellator and bolster their roster as well as the WSOF which i have high hopes for. Now if we could just get gina carano to make naughty movies or fight
If this means that the likes of Melendez, Mousasi, Cormier, Barnett and Jacare are going to UFC then this is great news.
If not, then it is great news anyway because Strikeforce has been shitty since Zuffa bought them.
Kind of needed to happen. The UFC really needs more talent to fill out all the shows they are putting on, a couple big pick ups from SF can really make a difference.
El Nino to UFC is a good thing.
Although, I Wonder what happens if Nate Diaz wins the title?
"Don't be scared homie"
I think this could ultimately end up being a good thing. I know they're under contract with Zuffa but the UFC won't be able to put on enough shows to accommodate all the fighters that had been in Strikeforce, at least IMO...which means they'll probably take the cream of the crop and let the rest go.
So, in theory, will get even better fights under the UFC banner, and at the same time Bellator will be able to pick up some really solid fighters for their shows on Spike that they wouldn't have been able to get otherwise. At least that's how I hope it turns out.
Maybe Zuffa is tired of dealing with Showtime's crap regarding fighters' affiliation. Maybe ending Strikefarce will just be the easiest way to transition fighters over to the UFC. Purely subjective, speculation on my part...
