Default Strikeforce business as usual!!

via BJ Penn's fb

Business As Usual Update: ZUFFA Cleans Strikeforce House, No One Left - UFC NEWS, MMA NEWS | BJPENN.COM

Now it appears that the UFC/ZUFFA army has assumed a full takeover of operations.

Word is most SF employee's have been sacked and replaced with former WEC employee's. SF is essentially just a name now. The company merger has begun in earnest. BAU of course.....
