I think this is good. Hopefully they'll be able to stack cards better than they have been. Seems like they'll finally have the correct amount of "known" fighters to match the amount of cards.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Dana will make a 140 or 145 pound weight class, no 135 forcing Rousy to step up and take on Cyborg to crown the first champ.

Well Dana loves her... so he'll make sure she's taken care of. Dana is one of those people if you are on his good side, you know he's going to help you out.

It will be interesting to see how Dana handles the women's portion.

Having Strikeforce is better for Zuffa and the UFC in the long term from a fighter and fan perspective. This has to be a cost issue.

I hear what you are saying and I agree. Except, I think that's what Zuffa views Fuel as. They put who they feel are the lower tier of fighters on Fuel, then they will move to FX when ready, then Fox and if they keep getting better, ultimately, they will be on PPV.

They don't need a completely second org. to do what you are suggesting. They can just promote the fighters on different networks as their talent and popularity demand.

Damn that sucks. I was hoping to catch a show in San Jose some time.

Good for the UFC. Bad for the MMA world.

if this is true.. wow

SF is actually quite underrated, they have a lot of good fighters.

I'm really excited to see Cormier, Gegard, Jacare, Feijao, Roger Gracie, Barnett's return, Rockhold, OSP, Lorenz Larkin, Marquardt in UFC WW div, Masvidal, Melendez, Pat Healy is on a nice streak (they can bill him as the guy who tapped out Dan Hardy, Paul Daley and Condit.

Very interested to see what happens with Ronda, Dana loves her.

I hope it's true.

The thing i'm most excited for.. Jake Shields, Roger Gracie, Jacare and Palhares all in the same division. If only Demian never left.

I don't care about Shields but Gracie, Jacare, and Palhares in the same division? Holy shit. That is a lot of high level BJJ. Too bad Chael left. I would have loved to see him try to outgrapple Roger Gracie.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.
