Not sure the numbers re correct ive heard from several other places (ill try to find a source) that it drew less the Kimbo vs Thompson did and that the channelsm regular progrmming produces higher drw than this fight card. I also heard tht though the peak viewing period was BEFORE the Fedor fight and people actully tuned out as the fight went later into the night (Meaning many viewers skipped out on the Fedor fight). Ill try to find a source but hey my source could be the incorrect one at the end of the day.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

You don't NEED it but it helps. I want to see the best fight the best. I can't do that when they are in separate orgs. Maybe it doesn't bother you that much but it bugs the hell out of me not to see Fedor fight UFC HW's.

Yeah, good old balls to the wall fighters like Shields doing anything to finish a guy....

Take the rose coloured glasses off, all the other orgs have snooze fests too.

Ratings don't matter if you aren't putting on PPVs. Strikeforce is a farm league the only thing they are accomplishing right now is building some name value for guys before they go to the ufc and make Dana money.

Yea they may have a big draw, but it was on a non-pay per view. So they pay their fighters so much, but where is SF making their money to pay the fighters? That was their biggest two fighters they had on live tv not pay per view. They blow their lode all ready what else do they have to offer?

I cant neg rep u enough.. I dont know how in the hell anyone would ever give you positive rep.. Your obnoxious half ass thinking is ignorant..You dont know anything and u jus babble..

Ufc didnt crush pride. As for judging I constantly hear from educated fans how the ufc would benefit from a yellow card system..

I mos def can agree with some of this.. If Dana fills this is going to be a extreme threat he will try to buy it out.
