    if you look to the right, you might be able to log in your vote for predictions on the Silva vs Sonnen match up. Timely!

    Was White speaking spanish or did hawani not know he was asking the same question over and over for 20 minutes, that guy usually does good interviews but that was pretty bad. And I have to agree with you guys Cage has really been slipping lately.

    I just voted for AS via submission but KO its winning … I don't think its good for the sport as well like Henderson said but money roles the world and for sure strikeforce was offered a good amount of money and it is what it is just like pride.

    WOW…I have been out of the loop for about a week and I just saw this, and all I can say is WOW!

    Only time will tell if this will be good for the sport or not. Right now, he is saying that SF will continue to operate with business as usuall but at some point down the road when M-1 Global and the Showtime deals end, it would only make sense for SF to merge into the UFC, like the WEC did. I really appreciate all that Zuffa and Dana have done for MMA but I really hope that they run SF separately and never merge them.

    With Segonku possibly going out of business (they lost their major sponsor and have lost their best fighters) and not SF being purchased by the UFC, the only big org out there that is not owned by the UFC is Dream…and something tells me that that the UFC will go after them shortly as well. It makes sense since Dream has a close partnership with SF.

    I just hope that our sport can continue to grow.

    Hopefully we now get to see elbows to a grounded opponent in Stikeforce……

    Yeah, and what is up with the upcoming events way out of date. I usually can see ufc fight cards before ufc posts them. YES – slipping a bit.
