So where does Womens mma move from here?



I think the UFC will have a 1 woman division(with a 2nd woman for 1 fight at a time) as long as Honda Housey keeps winning. They're going to take full advantage of the $$$ she can bring in.

This could be great for Bellator, they can pick the cream of the strikeforce crop.

Also I agree with Cowcatcher, Coker should go off and make a new org using his expertise

Great news. I can't help but to see SF as a shackle for some good talent. Here's a proposal:
Take the majority of the SF roster, and the lower end of the UFC roster and do weekly "fight nights" on their FB page, same style as FB prelims. It's a win-win. We get fights, fighters get paid to fight. Really helps with exposure to not only the sport, but also the individual fighters. Also helps with long gaps between cards. This is also an opportunity for newer talent to prove their mettle and also an opportunity for fighters who have struggled in the UFC to get back on track. There is room for SF fighters to transition to the UFC, it's through live streams on their FB page

If SF does fold, I'm sure Zuffa still has the rights to the signed fighters, so UFC will get the cream of the crop.
