Bellator will already be countered by Live TUF on FX (they're switching nights, too). The problem with SF as a feeder is that the average fan won't want to tune into the Lil brother show (how'd the CFL's TV coverage?), so they have to try & prop it up with talent at the top to at least give the appearance of comparability. Moving a highly recognizable, but no longer title-worthy, name like Florian would do just that. If he wins, it lends credibility to SF because they can point to how he's mixed it up with the top names. If he loses, it lends even more credibility to SF because this star from the UFC got tooled by their champ.

I like it...great idea & makes great sense for either Penn or Florian at this point.

Why not just combine the rosters but make Strikeforce the name of the Events that are run on Showtime. The UFC has 8 weight classes, if you add the womens titles thats different weight classes between 2 promotions. The womens betls can be defended on showtime until they build popularity and then they can use Strikeforce to build fighters up or even a title fight every now and then. They would just have to change the Strikeforce cage to be the same as the UFC's and everything would run smoothly.
