LOL – Wow! The Strikeforce heavyweights have been outclassed by the ladies. Love it!

That is the right thing to do, sucks for the several guys that were in it, but hopefully they can make a good transition to the UFC.

Melendez is stuck here for another year at least. So Dana, how is Gil going to be excited about Strikeforce?

Will we see Josh in the UFC again ?

Cool. I want to see Daniel Cormier put Brock Lesnar’s career to rest.

BULL s*** Dana just wants all the great strike force heavy weights to fight in the ufc. it pisses me off that he doesn’t just say it. its disrespectful to the fighters

Hmmm…on the surface it may seem like a bum thing to do on Dana’s behalf, but after thinking about it, it starts to make sense. The Strikeforce HW division really only has like 10 fighters, so it was inevitable that it would fold. However, I am super-glad that he’s decided to keep the Women’s divisions.

better than doing away with the whole promotion like the UFC has become notorious for…this is a Christmas gift

hann solo Says, in 12-15-2011 at 19:10:48 from    

Why cant they just leave strike force alone? i mean they’re just going to scrap the promotion once they can, so why bother F’ing with it?

Add womens MMA to the UFC

hann solo Says, in 12-15-2011 at 19:11:50 from    

but i suppose they just wanted their heavyweights and this was the easiest way to do it

Melendez’s dream was to make it to the UFC after this weekends fight. It’s his last contracted fight with SF and now their telling him “sorry, but without you strikeforce is balls up”. I don’t know about any of you, but being the last rat on a sinking organization would scare the hell out of me. The man is now stuck looking through the glass from the kiddie pool and no hope in the deep end where he belongs. Sad day for many of lightweights that thought it was there turn to get called up.

Well said StarCityInk! love the kiddy pool analogy haha

The end is near for the Strikeforce.

Tempted Says, in 12-16-2011 at 01:04:38 from    

People are really trying to say that “Dana just wants all the great strike force heavy weights to fight in the ufc”? Please let me know who the great ones are? And you are complete idiots if you think Dana made this happen. Strike Force was hemorrhaging money before Zuffa bought it and cut the crap. It would have COMPLETELY DIED had they not bought it. Just some Zuffa haters that or too moronic to see anything other than Dana’s face and run and hide.

RujeNuwe Says, in 12-16-2011 at 01:20:09 from    

The moment I heard that Zuffa was going to keep SF around I immediately thought it would become the premiere organization for WMMA.Glad they decided to keep it around for that reason alone…love watching the ladies get down….

Rick Says, in 12-16-2011 at 04:15:55 from    

Dont worry about Melendez, he will be in the UFC soon enough.

kuelniss Says, in 12-16-2011 at 05:52:04 from    

Good points StarCityInk, however, due to that very reason he may be able to make a nice $$$ contract coming up. After all, that is the number 1 goal.

wow Says, in 12-16-2011 at 08:24:03 from    

Well this is a smart move to be honest, theres what 3 decent heavyweights in strikeforce and Barnett isnt one of them.

Big foot vs Mir i would like that fight.

i love Arlovski but he just aint the guy he was in the early UFC’s

And in all fairness i aint a huge fan of womens MMA unless its cyborg all you get is 3 round decisions. No power

muahaha Says, in 12-16-2011 at 09:38:54 from    

@ Tempted… you have been tempted to suck dana’s dick! Congrats your a douche! Whatever dana says is true right? Lol he saved “Strikeforce” Maybe true… but hell it was more exciting than some of the ufc fights. I rather see strikeforce die with dignity. Not some of there good fighters get picked apart by ufc than slowly die.

JoeDog Says, in 12-16-2011 at 11:49:27 from    

You can hear the loud gulping sounds as the UFC swallows up Strikeforce, heavyweights first. Odd, its seem that just a short while ago, Strikeforce had what was considered a very serious group of HWs. Can Barnett get a UFC contract? The imagination wanders…Bigfoot vs Nelson. Barnett vs Mir. Cormier vs Carwin…. ?????

lobosamurai Says, in 12-16-2011 at 16:02:55 from    

I’m just happy that Strikeforce is still going to be around!! The HW’s in Stikeforce were about to recycle the 6-8 HW’s left. I hope they all go to the UFC.The UFC HW’s are a small group aswell. This should be good!

Sweetlander Says, in 12-16-2011 at 16:06:37 from    

@hann solo, go back to bed

kryptonite Says, in 12-17-2011 at 08:48:28 from
