Maybe he gets off on being hated? If he pulls out of the Diaz fight (which I don't think is even legal under his contract), he will on top of the list of the most hated for MMA fans.

Nothing personal, really, Dana doesn't give a ****. UFC just needed to make a historic precedent, so that fighters can know the consequences of this ****, first it was purely theoretical, but since Daley incident everyone will be thinking twice before doing something like this. If Anderson Silva had done it, he definitely wouldn't have been banned. Daley is dispensable, he wasn't long enough in UFC, so he was easy to punish and make an example of. Like I said, I'm sure there was nothing personal.

since we won't be able to see any huge fights at the moment. We'll have to discuss guys from the UFC that might go to Stikeforce. Evans is a good possibility, but I not sure the UFC willing to give up a gun as big as that, just yet. I think more guys the caliber of a Cole Miller and Stefan Struve will be heading over as sort of a measuring stick in their top two divisions which is HW and LW. I also imagine we'll see division slowly merge as we did with WEC. To allow Strikeforce focus on less division and make their budget go futher.

While Dana won't admit it. I do think that Strikeforce will constentrate on growing their womens divisions. That is one thing Strikeforce has that UFC is lacking. I just don't think Dana and the UFC were willing to make a push for it and possible fail. I think they want to have a go between, so if it fails its not on them. Strikeforce is a perfect experimental proven ground for them.

It looks like 2 years until SF folds. I doubt Fedor will be a credible contender then, so a Lesnar Fedor "superfight" is not on the horizon.

Cain VS Fedor would have been more of a super fight IMO. Or possibly Cain VS Overeem. I think your right with the 2 year thing though.

PRIDE or WEC? - Strikeforce's Future.

Pretty simple question, what do you think is gonna happen.

This was just announced hours ago, by next week everything could change, Strikeforce could be merging afterall, but this is the third time Zuffa has purchased an MMA company. How do you see this going for Strikeforce?

The PRIDE Route – The UFC eventually absorbs all of the talent, or atleast some/most of it.
The WEC Route – Sticks around, becomes a lot like the UFC just without the name and commentators, sponsored by the UFC’s sponsors, eventually guys move into the UFC(Condit, Chael, Stann, etc)

Very excited by this, can’t wait to see it all unfold.

Well, that's why I put the term in quotes. I just have a sentimental weakness for those 2 guys and wanted to see them square off and display their talents to the world.

I could also see Machida goin over.
But that all is purely speculation at that point.

One thing is for sure, if you have a big fall out with the upper guys, you will have problems.

I'm not bying it that you can work in SF as an alternative anymore. That ship has sailed as for today.

Of course it will take a while for everything to calm done before we get to see any great fights come from this. But when is does and if Fedor does indeed get a deal done. (which is hard for me to believe) I think a Couture vs. Fedor fight at 205 is the most intriguing. Yeah before the two loses a fight between Cain/Lesner and Fedor would have been interesting. But his recent loses kind of took his inviciblity from him. Now I would be more interesting seeing the orginal hyped fight that never happened. I think it might still have an impact on a division. Well that is if these fights start happening sooner rather than later.

If Fedor wants to revive his career, he must drop to LHW. Especially now. He is not a force in HW and will never be IMO. I think he could compete with guys his own weight though.

To those who still have Fedor in their HW top 10. Seriously???

Add this to the list of the greatest things to happen in MMA history.

Glad women's MMA is still going. Also glad that there's a more of a unification of the top tier of MMA competitors.

Strikeforce: WEC v2.0

Edit: Ariel Helwani, asking the same question for 20 minutes will not change the answer to said question.
