In the past, Strikeforce fighters had their win bonus, the roar of the crowd and a smiling promoter to look forward to if they gave their all inside the cage.

But that promoter would like to give them a little extra incentive – like extra cash.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said he's lobbying for "Fight Night" bonuses at future events, and the promotion's new owner, Zuffa, LLC, could make that happen.

Oh its gonna happen in two years when the contracts are done and he gets his walking papers...Or he could become just an employee..In two years this organization becomes the UFC guaranteed...Really makes no sense keeping it around...UFC will just run more pay per views..Just dont see an upside from having the extra banner when one brand is easier to streamline with production, advertising, merchandise and stuff...
