That is a great idea but unfortunately the theme of transaction appears to be "business as usual".

For now. But they will merge in time. Without a doubt. Even if they don't, all the best talent in SF will move over to the UFC soon as their current contract is up.

Best. News. Ever.

Yes but it took years for the WEC and UFC to merge. Strikeforce have their own deals and contracts which have to be honoured before a merger can be considered.

Fantastic news but it won't be as immediate for the Rashad-Hendo scenario to take place.
