I think keeping strikeforce would be good for Zuffa.
Imagine guys that they really like and don't wanna cut, but they have to due to their record (thinking of Dan Hardy).
They would have a place for then, besides that if they were in Strikeforce they wouldn't be in some other promotion helping the brand grow and that would be good business. In this pov they could get fighters that are making noise in other promotions but don't have quite the status yet to join the UFC, thus making those other orgs weaker.
