Lorenzo says they'll continue to use the Strikeforce cage. They will use unified rules tho (I guess that means elbows now OK)



Dana: I wouldn't count anything out, including superfights. Lorenzo: If there's an interest, that's what we do. That's a change from Sat.



Lorenzo confirms elbows on the ground will be legal.



Lorenzo says Showtime deal goes into 2014, not into 2012 as has been reported.



There's been no talk of a UFC fighter vs. Strikeforce fighter yet, none.



White: "A union is up to the fighters. But this really isn't a team sport. Will guys making big money want to kick money down to others?"



Dana: Regarding champ vs. champ fights, our job is to make sure fans get fights they want to see. It's just a matter of when.

No counter-programming either.

Yeah, I'm surprised anyone even asked that question. It seems like a no-brainer to me...

I better get my Twitter account back up and running. It seems that the UFC is making a huge effort to give the fans what they want. I've already seen a handful of fights made because fans bombard his Twitter feed.


Will Strikeforce keep the white gloves?

even if there isnt any superfights this is still really good for strikeforce. the ufc people will bring strikeforce up a notch and make our sport grow even more.
