    Strikeforce will be around until the end of the two year contract, the White interview is a little deceiving. There's no way Strikeforce can be built up, so its usefulness is temporary

    I question the UFC's strategy with acquisitions. I thought they had a great opportunity when they bought Pride, but I don't see where it did much for them. It seems like they just killed off a competing entity without capitalizing on its strengths.

    I think they purchased pride for Fedor's contract and all they got was a video library.

    What strengths? They couldn't get a contract in Japan because of the involvement of the mob out there and the links to Pride. They closed it and there was one less company to steal fighters and viewership. Same with SF.

    They aren't buying these companies because they want the fighters first and foremost, they want the competition to not be there.

    Never knew of the Mob links... Are you talking about the Fertitas links to the Mob or Pride's link?

    Pride through Dream Stage had been linked to the Yakuza for a looooooooong time. They got dropped from their TV contract because of it pretty much. Here's an old post from Sherdog with a link (no longer working) that summarized it.

    Here's another article on the subject as well.
