I think it had more to do with Sengoku going under and Dream possibly following. MMA needs a developmental system badly and Strikeforce is the sort of company that allows for fighters to compete and main event in the indie's.

My big hope is that they see in Strikeforce and Showtime a company that will run these huge tournaments that will bring acclaim and respect to the winners (that the UFC can sign).
