What will happen to Women's MMA now that Zuffa owns SF
 
Do you think that Zuffa/UFC will try Women's MMA or do you think after the contracts are up they will disband it all together. ?

If they really do keep Strikeforce seperate it will probably carry on. But if they merge them within the next year or two they'll probably cut it. Hopefully they keep it either way, theres not much talent but they don't have to have a ton of fights.

If they drop the women's division it would be a big mistake in my opinion. Probably not from a business standpoint, but these girls deserve to fight in front of big crowds as much as any male fighter.

No...


No they ****ing don't.

It's actually an embarrassment to the sport.

I might have to strangle Dana if he sells out.

That Coenen vs that gorilla dyke was probably one of the worst displays of fighting I've ever seen. The punches from full mount were the absolute epitome of little girly punches.


I'd tolerate a junior division with kids before I tolerate women.

Business as usual... lol

Seriously though unless a big infuse of talent come along in the next couple years when they merge with the UFC it will get debanded. Not enough quality fighters.

I'm sorry, but I just can't watch it.

The UFC can't carry 9 divisions, I'm not even sold that they will be able to keep the 135lb.

Good thing they won't. Strikeforce and the UFC will be separate entities. This won't be like the Pride deal because the office structure is already in place at Strikeforce. Also, Zuffa won't be dealing with the mafia in an attempt to even keep a foothold.

Strikeforce will be Strikeforce, the UFC will be the UFC. Changing of owners does not equal changing of all staff. I just foresee a lot of fighters released from the UFC going to Strikeforce and a lot of fighters in Strikeforce being promoted to the UFC. The UFC will be come the elite organization while Strikeforce will be like the development league.

135 has got serious up and coming talent. Least of my worries.

Agreed. Dana said there just isn't enough talent so I bet they get rid of the women once the contracts are completed. I'm sure there will be another promotion to pick up the women and give them an opportunity though.
