Mike Kyle should not be allowed anywhere near near the UFC. If Babalu and Daley are not allowed back why the hell should Kyle ever be allowed back considering what he did was far worse.

Here is a video for those not familiar. Kyle is the most classless guy in MMA.

Babalu and Daley did it IN the UFC. This was long time ago. Look at what gilbert yvel did to a referee and still eventually fought in the UFC.
Mike Kyle got striking talent and I think he learned not to do this.

Following: Cain , JDS, Werdum, Shogun, Machida, Weidman, Pettis, Aldo, Melendez

Yeah, Id say Yvel's actions were worse. Didnt Kyle get a pretty lengthy ban from MMA after this?

There is no fight I want to see more in the world right now than Jones vs Mo have been saying that for a long time, Strikeforce is going nowhere under the Zuffa banner, its always going to be second to the UFC under Zuffa, before it was good to watch it grow and develop because the potential was limitless especially with the prospect of cross promotion fights which it seemed happy to support.

But now Zuffa has built a wall in the development of the promotion as its always going to take second rate priority over the UFC and has already taken huge hits, and I dont believe for a second that the Reem been pulled from the GP into the UFC was a accident which says it all, Zuffa was willing to break the biggest event Strikeforce ever run in order to get the fighter they wanted into the UFC.

So yea fcuk it as things stand they may as well pull the best fighters out and into the UFC thats the one good thing that can come of this sell out, we already lost the growth potential of the Strikeforce promotion so may as well take the consolation of taking the quality fighters they have out of the redundant Strikeforce divisions and pulling them over to the UFC where at least there is still limitless growth potential.

King Mo and Feijao would be top of my list of fighters to pull across, a top 5 list right now from all divisions would be

King Mo
Feijao
Cormier
Melendez
Gracie

So as u can see the 205 division ranks very high in my opinion of where the quality lays within the promotion, and the list goes on Woodley, Del Rosario, Griggs, Rockhold to name a few, even the likes of Noons and Jacare I would not hesitate like to see come over, none of these fighters deserve to be held back in a division that has lost the potential to grow into the biggest and most respected MMA promotion in the world.

But King Mo and Feijao are absolute musts I think, if they both dont find there way over to the UFC then the stab in the back Zuffa dealt to all Striekforce fans would have come with no bandages to help heal the wound.

Strikeforce in general should be merged with the UFC. None of the divisions are deep in Strikeforce.

Mo is very overrated. He would be a solid addition and I'd like to see him in the UFC...but he isn't a threat to the title.

He had the worst title fight I've seen vs Mousasi. They both gassed after 1 round and he laid on Mousasi and got beat up more from bottom.

Feijao stuffed his TDs and beat his ass.

He beat Roger Gracie who had little to no ways of getting it to the ground. He KO'd, BJJ guy who hasn't trained striking that long. Big Deal.

He took Larkin down. A guy with terrible TDD.

We all know he is a very good wrestler. But I don't see what he has done that is impressive.

His striking is blah, his cardio sucks, his sub game isn't advanced. And he isn't the biggest 205er. And he has little experience.

I don't see what he has to offer to the top of the division. But he would be a solid guy to have there. He would be a solid 8-15 th best LHW who offers wrestling.
