Henderson might have two title belts and be the face of MMA in America by the end of 2010. A win for Henderson and a win for Strikeforce. I think that the UFC is starting to slip up and lose some credibility. Strikeforce is putting on competitive fights to a national audience, and I think he might have underestimated Dan Henderson. Dana White talks about the downfall of boxing yet he is the number one reason why MMA is starting to look like a bunch of boxing commissions.

On top of that we don't see the old UFC cards with 3 sick fights every time around, we see the same ppv #'s with 1-2 ok-good fights. At least boxing fights are 10-12 rounds and we get our monies worth.

Dana just gave Strikeforce 3 very marketable championship fights.



He sure did. Not a very good move for Dana. Despite his opinion, I think that Strikeforce is gonna stick around for quite a while.

I think Dan in strikeforce is a good thing both ways.
I would rather see brought to the forefront in Strikeforce than get left on the UFC's back burners.
