Default Zuffa now doing Strikeforce press credentials

For aspiring journalists, photographers, and videographers who wanted to go to Strikeforce as a press, better start sucking up to Dana White and Zuffa NOW!.

Why shouldn't you? as an MMA fan you would want to have journalists who are unbiased.

With Zuffa now controlling which press can go to Strikeforce events, many journalists who were once allowed in wont be, especially those that Dana White personally do not like or those that do not toe the company Zuffa line.

What makes you think it's not the bias ones they're trying to keep out? It's no secret Dana's burnt some bridges, who's to say there's not journalists who will drag the UFC through the mud despite how good/bad a card might be.

Besides as long as Ariel Hewanni keeps getting in we'll be alright.

Is this supposed to be Hitler Germany?

Journalists are journalists, they should be able to report and report how and what they want provided they have proof. What youll get now is a whole bunch of journalists sucking up to Dana and Zuffa, saying that they love the $hit theyve been fed simply because they have nowhere else to go.

Ariel Hewanni is one of these sucking up to Dana, M1 has already called him out for this bias. Ariel bagged out a promotion unfairly and even when he was given all the info before hand. Ariel manly just reports on UFC now and not MMA, have you ever wondered why Arielnow gets all the juicy UFC info's?

No if they don't want too apply they don't have too, there's this thing called PPV, where you can watch the fights live from your home, maybe you've heard of it?? The journalists get free passes to live events, they don't have to be there to report on the fights. The UFC is a private organization, they're not the government.

Personally I'd take Aerial's word before I took those at M1's, but that's just me.

Scott probably thought that SF would be safe when Dana promised business as usual. The problem is that Zuffa's business as usual involves buying/making a deal with a promotion then SHUTTING THEM DOWN. Just like, just like Pride, just like Affliction, and just like WEC. Strikeforce is next to go.

They'll be running for more than a year, but yeah when the showtime deal is up and fighter's are either signed with UFC or out of a job they'll close up shop with Strikeforce. Then we'll see acouple of unification bouts like we did with the Pride merger. This should not come as a shock to anybody.

I'm sure Scott was under no illusions about what was going to happen, don't make out like he was tricked by the evil Dana White, he's not stupid he saw an oppurtunity to get out clean with a profit and took it, that's called business. People are a bit butt hurt about Scott "selling out". In the end he was in it for money like any other promoter.

To be fair, Helwani covers everyone and advocated for Fedor as P4P #1 for years.
