There have been a lot of great pick ups from Strikeforce, and nearly all of them have scored unfavorable match ups. Lawler should have been matched up with a banger, and Green should have scored a guy who is more versatile for sure. I am wondering, does anyone have a list of who the UFC has picked up and what their match ups are....immediate props would come. I would disect it of course.

Maybe the UFC are trying to shift dead weight ?

I know Lawler is on a pretty lucrative contract......

Hurts, but it's true....Robbie is inconsistant as he sometimes just shows a complete lack of wrestling skills and that has even made him gunshy before too.
