I don't think they will be taking over anytime soon,
but I don't imagine them going out of business either.

(they also hold the highest PAID attendance record for an mma event in the states)

They actually have some good fighters, and honestly I have enjoyed the last few cards.
The last few cards were better than any PPV's that I have seen in a LONG time with the UFC. Every fight in their shows lately have been very good fights! I get them free on Showtime but would pay for them in a heartbeat.

Agreed.

To be honest I have like WEC's product a lot better than the UFC lately as well.
but yeah, the last Strikeforce card was pretty good.

I think they are doing a good job showcasing a large group of people,
and not seeming to make the mistake of only having one star that Showtime did.

I don't think it's a good move at all. What if he somehow gets beat by one of those fighters? I know it's highly unlikely but it is MMA and anything can happen. Say he does win every fight with them...people are still going to say he never fought the best, which would be the HW's of the UFC.

Oh well, it just gives Brock more time to train, get even better and pose even more problems for him if the fight does happen someday. That's if Brock doesn't lose either, which I don't think he will for awhile.

I don't think its the BEST move, but I am ok with it.

Fedor doesn't care about being known as the best, or his legacy.
I never know why people keep bringing that up.

Well Affliction fights were held during X/C fights so It really only made sense for M-1 to co promote Strikeforce was the only option.

Strikeforce has CBS which has 100 million+ plus viewers. Spike has close to 80 million. Fedor will get more exposure than the UFC gets with Spike. Strikeforce is also with Showtime. no PPV's, just order Showtime.

and Fedor isn't afraid of Lesnar. he turned the UFC down before Brock ever fought. the UFC is afraid to co-promote though. even Randy said Fedor would tear up Brock at this point.

Well, he has said on numerous occasions that he wants to fight the top competition and best fighters. Those guys aren't cans but they definately aren't at the top either.

The reason it keeps getting brought up is if he people are still going to call him the best p4p and greatest fighter he is face and beat current top fighters.
