Frank Shamrock who has had a long time bitter feud with UFC President Dana White is finally starting to recognize the power of the UFC's President as he talked about the recent Strikeforce purchase by Zuffa:

“I would say that the sport is now officially the UFC,” Shamrock said during a “Savage Dog Show” interview on the Sherdog Radio Network. “Which has been their plan and strategy all along. Good on them for achieving it.”

“I knew [Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker] was having financial trouble. Not financial trouble — I knew that he needed more money to expand and to compete in the marketplace. We had high-level talks over the past few months. I was trying to help him. People were trying to help him. I knew he had to make a decision or make an exit or something. I knew something was coming. I was pretty shocked it was the UFC, but it is what it is: big business.”

“This is business. I supported the brand of Strikeforce because I believe in the dream of martial arts and I believe in Coker
