this is a bit gay. Can't believe not a single SF fighter is moving over to UFC.

I know you're joking, but the thing that's so great for ZUFFA about this deal is they effectively have Fedor stuck. He can't leave Strikeforce 'cause there's nothing else out there. He will not move to Bellator, as their contracts are even more exclusive than the UFC's and a complete mess, and if he doesn't want to sign with the UFC he has no option but to stay with Strikeforce. ZUFFA effectively have a monopoly on the best talent in the US, bar 1 or 2 fighters in Bellator. It's a superb move.

Business-wise this is a huge move for Zuffa, they are now, literally, gods of MMA...

But as Dana said, Zuffa honours all contracts, and Coker has the final say in who fights for SF the same way Dana does for the UFC.

Which means the Dayleys, Barnetts and Fedors of the world will not have to fear anything, at least in the short term

Zuffa Purchases Strikeforce!!!!

LAS VEGAS -- In a transaction that will forever change the mixed martial arts world, Zuffa, the parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has purchased its top competitor, Strikeforce.

UFC president Dana White spoke to MMA Fighting exclusively about why the historic purchase happened, the terms of the deal, what this means for the Strikeforce brand and fighters and much more.

Gareth A Davies has come up with a cracking idea. If Jon Jones beats Shogun Rua for the belt next weekend; Rashad Evans vs Dan Henderson for the 205lb Strikeforce title? Now that is something I would love to see. Moving Rashad to Strikeforce makes perfect sense. He has too many friends in the UFC, and having him move over and dominate the 205lb division of Strikeforce would be a great advert for the UFC. Won't happen, but it'd be awesome.

For some reason my Norton Anti-Virus said MMAFighting.com is virus-ridden and blocked it permanently.

Could you post the Dana White interview part?

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.
