yes that is true.. but with dana's mob like tactics during negotiations doesn't lead every strong fighter to the ufc...

and you can do co-promotions to get a undisputed champ... like pride and k1 did back in the days... but ufc doesn't do co-promotions...

Re: Zuffa buys Strikeforce

Hopefully now we can see the heavyweights of the two orgs mix it up. Allistair Overeem vs Cain, Junior Dos Santos vs Sergei Kharitinov, lots of possibilities. Lots of good middleweights also.

Re: Zuffa buys Strikeforce

Seems like with the lack of options for top fighters they are going to need a "fighters union" or something in order to have any kind of negotiating ground to stand on? I mean otherwise Dana White just tells them what they will get paid and who they will fight or they can suck it?
