I think that the UFC is in a really weird situation here where patience may be the best policy. I say this because there is a Heavy Weight division in Strikeforce but it really isn't stacked at all. That said take for example a guy like Brett Rogers, this is a guy that has never been in the situations fight wise that Fedor has.
I state this because I believe that there will really be no one that Strikeforce can bring to the table that will even come close to beating him.
Where am I going with all this? Well the UFC clearly by showing UFC 100 so soon for free on Spike are trying to capture some of that market and will continue to employ these tactics until they once again most likely impact Strikeforce's business. The point is they may not have to, Strikeforce has alot riding on Fedor including a contract with Showtime, perhaps by the time fedor has walked through all their HW's their draw as a venue could decline without the help of the UFC.
