It seems the UFC are going to keep Strikeforce, what with their failure to sign Gilbert Melendez, their decision to keep the HW Grand Prix going, and their desire to keep womens MMA in Strikeforce.

Should the UFC move some bodies over, give these guys something to fight for?
Strikeforce is doing away with their heavyweight division shortly after the tournament ends. Zuffa is currently keeping Strikeforce running, and have renewed the Showtime deal. There will be 6-8 Showtime cards in 2012.
