I read somewhere that StrikeForce Fighters can no longer transfer over the UFC for a while because of a contractual agreement with Showtime got enforced. So guys like Mousasi, Cormier, and Melendez wont be coming over to the UFC anytime soon.
So while Zuffa may own both Strikeforce and UFC, Showtime has legal papers preventing Zuffa from tampering with Strikeforce in this specific sense as long as they are contracted with Showtime. They shouldve left when they had the chance alongside the last wave: Nick Diaz, Mayhem Miller, Del Rosario etc.
