Didn't realize how many fighters were on their roster. I think SF should have went with a lean philosophy and do four major shows a year with the female division being the marquee show.

It's going to be an uphill battle for all SF fighters. The UFC already got who they wanted; The Reem, Diaz, Shields, & Cung. Big Foot was just a bonus.

Sad to see SF go. It was a solid organization that got picked apart by the UFC. That's business for ya.

Only one man is still missing. Can anybody guess...haha...

I think some of the lists are way too long, and people aren't realizing they aren't really just inheriting all these guys.

You have to figure they aren't going to do that many more shows next year. Where will all these fighters fight? You would have to make some other cuts first, many of them. A lot of the fringe guys won't be added right away. There is nothing wrong with going to a small show and accumulating wins and experience.

A lot of these guys will be on call for injury replacements though.

I think some people will be disappointed when one of those bigger names isn't added. I bet the UFC won't sign them all. Barnett and Mousasi come to mind. Barnett because Dana doesn't like him much and he is a roider. Mousasi because he may follow Fedor's footsteps and fight in Japan or try K-1. He may be stubborn.

Marquardt is a another that...who knows?

The original post contained a list of the entire Strikeforce roster, not who I thought should come over.

I think Rastaman's list of 25 men could be cut to 20 or 16 spread over the 5 divisions...

Why?

If you would want to see Weidman fight anyone from strikeforce it should be Jacare unless you are Weidman fan and hope he can duck him like he is every other top MW on his way to a title shot.

I think it should be divided into three categories, contracts, try-outs, cuts. The thing of it is, it's pretty dumb to take the number three organization in MMA and just cut loose an entire pool of prospect's. Fighters develop and just because they don't have a huge name today doesn't mean that a year or two from now they won't be top ten/top twenty guys. The UFC is great when it comes to can't miss blue chippers like Jones, Macdonald, Silva, Dos Santos and Mcdonald but you can't just run the league on one to two prospects, you need diversity and TUF ain't the program it once was. Also Zuffa's been triming the fat from this group for the past two years so their should be little to none guys ready for departure.

No brainer contract guys are clear
HW - Cormier (1), Barnett (2)
MW - Rockhold (3), Jacare (4), Gracie (5), Larkin (6), Anthony Smith (7)
WW - Marquardt (8), Woodley (9), Saffiedine (10), High (11), Mein (12), Santiago (13)
LW - Melendez (14), Thomson (15), Healy (16), Masvidal (17), Green (18)
LHW - all of them, because the UFC is going to need to replace all the guys in this division who are retiring in the next two years. Even if some of these guys suck they can function as enhancement talent because todays glorified punching bag is tomorrows MW contenders (Sonnen, Stann, Boetsch)(27).

Try-Outs
MW - Kennedy, Jardine, Lawler, Amagov, Medeiros, Sayers, Trevor Smith
WW - Bowling, Spang, Moore, Mulhern, Voelker, Burrell, Villefort, LaFlare
LW - Evagelista, Noons, Couture, Wilcox, Fodor, Ricehouse, Gurgel, Duarte, Vallie-Flagg, Payan, Hirota, Leonhardt, Martins(28).
-That's 14 fights, though it should be more like 25 as in some cases (WW) those guys could face the lower end guys in the division. Either or you could work those fights in a season(3/4) of events.

Cut
MW - Radach, James, Berry
WW - Stinson, Misaki(retired), Stinson, Melancon
LW - Terry, Heun, Bravo(10)

He never beat the third best MW in the world he beat a guy who got pushed up make believe rankings because people around him lost while he was beating mediocre fighters. Kind of like what Weidman has been doing. I'm so impressed that he knocked out a guy that Matt Hammil knocked out and Demian Maia and Kendal Grove dropped.
