UFC vs. Strikeforce

SF HW > UFC HW
SF LHW = UFC LHW
SF MW < UFC MW
SF WW = UFC WW
SF LW < UFC LW

That is my diagram of how I think the divisions stack up against each other, NOT which champion I think would win. If it were done that way, SF would win every bout but LW.

If it werent for the MW division being so low I would say SF has the exact same caliber fighters as the UFC. Their HW division is tons better. I could see any of their champions beating any of the UFC champions, minus Gilbert beating BJ Penn. Thats it.

Discuss and vote.

kind of an odd thread, but ill put my two cents in

HW= Fedor vs Lesnar- too unpredictable, see any of the million threads about this.

LHW= Machida vs Mousasi- I would have to give this to Machida, but again, very unpredictable

MW= Shields vs Silva- Shields gets his shit pushed in

WW= Diaz/Zaromskis vs GSP- GSP beats either of them at this point IMO

LW= Penn vs Melendez- Penn wins anywhere he wants.

Thats just the champs, and honestly this is the only format Strikeforce could be competitive in, if you faced off the top five or ten fighters in each weightclass, Strikeforce wouldn't have the depth to compete.

UFC has the bigger roster and alot of the Strikeforce fighters are UFC castoffs. If Strikeforce continues to grow the way they are now, this could be way more competitive in a year or two.

SF LHW=UFC LHW
SF WW=UFC Welterweight

You think there Welter weight Champ can beat GSP?

I disagree. I think every division in the UFC is better than SF's divisions overall.

I am pretty sure this was discussed plenty before, but I dont agree with you that SF champions would win everyone but LHW...

I would take the top 5 fighters from any division in StrikeForce besides the MW division up against the top 5 in the UFC any day. The HW division especially would own the UFC's. Hands down.

I believe that sometimes the only reason people are so up on the UFC being the best is that is all they watch, and are used to hearing it all the time. You have become brainwashed IMO, and need to actually learn more about the fighters from SF before you judge.

Jake Shields has a MUCH MORE impressive resume than Anderson Silva. Check it out before you think Silva would "push his shit in"...

SF TOP HW

Fedor
Overeem
Werdum
Rogers
Silva

UFC TOP HW

Lesnar
Mir
JDS
Nog
Velasquez

Granted, it depends on who is matched with who but I think SF would win the majority of the fights.

There are a few big name stars in Strikeforce, but I think the UFC's got far more depth in basically every division. The only one that's up for contention is the HW division for me. You've got Lesnar, Mir, Nog, JDS, Velasquez and Carwin for the UFC compared with Fedor, Overeem, Werdum, Rogers and Silva for Strikeforce. Pretty even that I'd say.

I always liked the underdog more then the favorite, so i would say Strikeforce .. but since they have people like Fedor Dan Mousasi and many others i would be really careful by calling them a underdog..

Financially UFC is probably untouchable.. but i can only be sure if all these orgs would let me in their secrets of how much they really have..

So I guess anyone that votes the UFC is brainwashed, I guess you have your answer then... SF wins because you say so.

That pretty much sums it up

The only devision SF has wich can compete against the big UFC is the HW devision (And even those would lose in my mind). SF can't compete with the UFC..not yet!

Mousasi would not be the LHW champion!
Shields would not even come close to be the champ at MW!
Melendez beating The Prodigy no way!
Diaz vs. GSP lol

But one guy wins Fedor!!!
