Is Dana picking Strikeforce's major pieces (Diaz, Overeem, Henderson) in hopes they will not renew & he can fold the tv contract, kill strikeforce & get everyone into the UFC?
This is exactly what I came here to imply. Why would Showtime want to keep Strikeforce? Most of their champions are in the UFC now, save for the women. Who else do they have that could put on a good show?
"Challengers" cards alone certainly aren't good enough. If I am not mistaken, neither Henderson-Emelianenko nor the most recent leg of the Heavyweight Grand Prix cracked a million views.
