Fedor and Henderson combined for $2.3 million. That's more than the entire UFC payroll for PPV events. Strikeforce has bigger salaries, lower revenue...

When the Showtime contract is up...Zuffa's gonna knock on Coker's door.

Showtime gets the Challengers series it has so far, gets the GP fights with exception maybe of final.... just throwing that out there... Women can be on all the showtime cards, title fights on the GP shows to get views... and then when hyping a fight you can still say so-n-so was a StrikeForce Tourney winner.... Showtime get alot of the same fightes they got now, UFC keeps the PPV market they got.....
This is an awesome idea. Thought about what they could do with Strikeforce and never considered this.

Same difference...

Edit: And to add to this thread now, the one thing that SF ever had that made them remotely worth watching was a strong HW division. Now their only HW's worth noting are Werdum and Silva.

I have a feeling that Strikeforce will be finished in a year.

And there is the 'bottom line'.

I think Fertita is making the changes necessary to make SF profitable. Things are probably going to look a bit worse for SF before they improve.

I think the goal is to keep SF as a feeder league with some decent names to help market it. They aren't going to be held hostage by M-1 or GG.

Yeah, but I agree that Strikeforce is going to be shut down cause it isn't something ideal to Dana. Showtime gets to call the shots for their shows and that isn't ideal for Dana White. He is going to want to shut Strikeforce once the contract is up and Showtime is probably going to look for another promotion, I'd say probably like Shark Fights or something.

I agree. Strikeforce has looked desperate with their title contenders being so awful, Diaz being switched over, Overeem being cut or whatever, their best women's champ inactive for ages, the HW tournament falling apart miserably... who knows.


All I want is Mousasi, Big Foot and Werdum in the UFC. Ready go.

I don't agree that the heavyweight tournament has fallen apart. There is a reason why they have alternates for things like this and Cormier is a legitimate rising star. If he beats Bigfoot then he will have earned his finalist position.
