Is the end near?

Yup.

Just look at the whole situation:

HW division - the champ was released, for strange reasons
HW Grand Prix - full of controversy
LHW division - the champ has no contract signed
MW division - the champ has onely one worthy opponent to fight: Tim Kennedy
WW division - the champ left the organisation.
LW division - the only division that seems to make some sense atm
Women's FW division - the champ has no contract
Women's BW division - the previous champ was released, for strange reasons


Like others have said: SF will run until the best fighters' contracts expire and the Showtime contract expires.

I see the best fighters making the switch to the UFC after their contract with SF expire.
And that will leave SF wit a lot of cans...and honeslty...who wants to see them fight?!

And i agree with Juggz - they should keep the SF challengers series, in order to find new, young, talentend fighters.

Yeah, I knew that business as usual would only last so long. Now people have been getting cut right and left and other kind's of Dana White BS. We all knew it was only a matter of time before Strikeforce was shut down and it's only a matter of time before their Showtime deal expires and Showtime will just go with M-1 Global.

I think the term "business as usual" is actually a metaphor for "lets watch this thing crumble and we'll catch the useful bits before leaving it a broken heap on the ground"

It's not like they went in and tore the place to shreds, it was already on it's way out, Zuffa just isn't going to do much to keep it from dying out. They really just want the first crack at all of the fighter's contracts, considering how many guy's contracts were running out at around the same time.

Well that is basically what they did with WFA and Pride. Affliction they just allowed them to become sponsors if they gave them their fighter contracts. WEC was to beat out the IFL on Versus.
