For Strikeforce to thrive, they need a considerable amount of new blood to fill their shallow divisions. If you were given the opportunity, which five UFC fighters would you choose to send over to Strikeforce from each division, and what would be the first three matches you would make? (Don't bother with Heavyweight since Strikeforce will be doing away with the division.)

none, I would shut down Strikeforce and ship any possible contenders over to the UFC, which I think is basically what the UFC is doing bit by bit.

Nice picks as always, Budge! I also thought Paul Taylor would be a decent guy to send over. The thought of Taylor vs. Noons is exciting
