In one more attempt to become the biggest and baddest MMA organization on the planet, UFC parent company Zuffa has purchased the rights to competitor brand Strikeforce today.
Dana White says “business will run as usual”, Scott Coker, and all other Strikeforce staff members will remain in place and retain their current jobs.
He says that Strikeforce fighters will not fight under the UFC brand, and vice versa, but that could easily change.
Will we finally get to find out who the best P4P fighters in the world are?
Can Cain Velasquez defeat Alastair Overeem?
What does this do for Fedor’s career? Dana doesn’t seem to want to deal with M-1 Global.
Dana White says that he will honor all contracts in place, from Fedor to Dan Henderson.
My opinion on this deal, is as Dana says Strikeforce will continue to run as it has been, I think it will go much the way WEC did, it will be an entity of its own,just under the Zuffa banner, but give it time, and they will merge together as well. So eventually Strikeforce and the UFC will merge together I’m sure.
