0.o UFC Purchases Strikeforce

Source: Wrestlezone

“UFC president Dana White recently announced during a sit-down interview with respected MMA journalist Ariel Helwani that the company has officially purchased rival MMA promotion Strikeforce.

The promotion, which is widely considered by fans to be the second largest MMA league in the world, is now owned by UFC, but will be run by the same people (Scott Coker, etc.) and air on the same network (Showtime) as before.

White mentioned several times during the interview that “business will run as usual,” referring to fighter swapping, etc.”

Wow, this is a surprising move from UFC. I didn’t see it coming at all. It will give us the chance to see Fedor Emelianenko fight in the UFC. Hell, I want to see Brock Lesnar vs “Black Lesnar” Bobby Lashley. However, I wonder how the Strikeforce’s fighter contracts will be handled. Do they retain the contract? Do they need to make new type of contracts?
