"To me I've always envisioned seeing these big fights happen between Gilbert (Melendez) and Frankie Edgar or Alistair Overeem fighting Cain Velasquez and have these big super bowl events."

"There has been dialogue about something like that happening but it's going to be down the road. The fans of Strikeforce are going to be able to see their fights that they normally see happen on Showtime. Showtime is going to continue to be the broadcast partner. We have our own fighters, UFC has their own fighters. But I bet you in the next eight months to a year, you're going to see some crossover fights. As a fan that's going to be amazing, that's going to be unbelievable, because I think those fights should happen."

If that happens the talent pool in strikeforce will go way up. It wont matter who they fight for as long as they can fight UFC caliber fighters.

Good idea, plus I'm sure it'd give Joe Silva and DW some ideas since we know they've poached some off these boards before.

From time to time, we steal their broadcast, and from time to time, they steal our ideas.

I say, fair trade!!

There will never be crossover fights. The reason is simple, when the demand is high enough for SF champs to fight in the UFC, ZUFFA will shutdown Strikeforce and renegotiate most of the fighter contracts to be exclusive. The ones that don't want to be exclusive will head over to the UK and Japan. So..., we will never see some fights, for the simple fact certain fighters don't want to be owned by any one company. But we will see a bunch of dream fights made.

Give me Reem vs winner of JDS and Cain (JDS will retire Brock).

Give me Melendez V winner of Edgar and Maynard (assuming the winner also beats Pettis).

Give me Jacare V Anderson Silva.

That is all.
