Those some great fights. I like all of them. The only one I don't see as being a good fight is Gegard vs. Bones. The rest of them match people whose skill level is pretty equal.

It would be a great way to nuture talent rather then just cutting a guy after one fight. Which we all know Dana is inclined to do at times.
Yeah it's been discussed a little. I think it is a good idea. Transfer some of the best in Stikeforce to the UFC, so we can all see the dream fights we want and then transfer some of the guys like Franklin, Cro Crop, Kongo, Tito, Bonnar, D. Miller, Swick, Fisher, and Tibau, who I don't believe have a shot of gaining or regaining a title, to strikeforce to measure some of the top future prosepect. Also it could give guys who are cut a second chance.

I for one (most would probally disagree with me here) would like to see them continue Strikeforce, even if just so they could feel out the women's divisons. I sort of follow the women a little bit and think they show some promise. I know Dana don't think that there are enough good ones to start a division, but I believe they are out there. They just need a platform to display their talents. I just went to the Hendo vs. Fejao event and that chick Liz Carmouche really impressed me in her loss to Marloes Coenen. I mean she really came out to fight and was winning every aspect of the fight until the SUB. I think there are plenty more out there if they just made the effort to find them.

Plus then it could be like the WEC, where as they have the best lighter weight guys in the world. Strikeforce could have the best women in the world and then the rest of the divisions could just serve as the minor leagues like the WEC lightweight and LH, MW and WW before they merged.

That way the UFC could just grap up guys like say Lashely before his loss and take them along slowly. I mean look at Mark Munoz. He was a name, but wasn't ready for the big time yet. Through the WEC, Zuffa was able to bring him along slowly and at the same time keep other organizations from scooping him up.

It makes sense to me.

how are the fans gaining from this? fedor isnt coming over, overeemm has the option of re-signing with strikeforce until their contract with showtime expires.Which is when zuffa will dissolve it.Other than those 2, strikeforce doesnt really have any other marquee fighters that are goin to come to ufc and crash the building..

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering
