    Tito didn't give Dana grief at the negotiation table like Fedor has been doing.

    Which doesn't really make sense to me. By running SF as a seperate company, the UFC essentially competes with itself. I predict they will close it down shortly.

    This^^^^^ is what I fear.

    My understanding of the Tito thing was, they didn't want him taking all that mouthy starpower to Strikeforce.

    I'll state it again in this thread, but in my opinion the buyout is intended as a sort of "farm system" for the UFC to develop, market, and bring in poster boys. They'll do what they did with the WEC by broadcasting on different days. I'm interested to see if they'll transfer over some sponsors from Strikeforce.

    it's all up to bellator now.

    if they do keep strikeforce as a separate entity, i'm thinking they'll have to keep the women's fights as well. who knows? maybe in a few years time when they decide to absorb strikeforce like wec, they'll take on the women's divisions as well.

    Speechless, I'm totally effigy speechless. The implications of this are enormous. I gotta sleep this one over.

    Looking back, I was a bit surprised then, how Dana/Zuffa suddenly stopped countering the Strikeforce shows and how Dana was giving neutral, even positive comments on the Heavyweight GP. It makes sense now.




    Damn

    You know I thought that was weird and just wrote it off as trying to lure fighters not the whole damn company.

    Wow, I'm generally anti-union but with this situation the fighters essentially need one now. Anti-union rhetoric is great when your workers can go somewhere else but with a Zuffa monopoly what are you going to do?

    On one hand I understand, but watching how fighters had to work so hard to get paid it is hard for me to side with Zuffa.

    I was always hoping we would have unification fights like boxing did before it went down the toilet IMO.

    Can you imagine a season of TUF with Fedor coaching?!

    Unfortunately I think the negatives far outweigh the postives, Dana doesn't believe in womens MMA being a draw, and honestly, the UFC business model has worked so well, why change it, even if SF is kept as a seperate promotion....I wonder how long its going to be before Bellator gets bought out or driven out of business.
