Default Will all current D-level UFC guys and all future losing-streakers go to Strikeforce?

So will all of the UFC's D-level fighters (eg Mike Russow) and all of the UFC's guys who are on losing streaks (eg Joe Stevenson) now be parachuted into Strikeforce?

Is that what Strikeforce will be used for in future, like the B-division to the UFC's A-league?

That and rising stars, in my opinion. Get the rising stars on free TV and then when they move to the UFC they go PPV if people want to carry on watching them.

Personally i think SF will fold within a few months and the UFC will cull fighters from each division.

I'd like it to act as a feeder league. They could do 'UFC: Strikeforce' shows where the D-listers/rejects are pitted against youngsters/prospects.

But I imagine all the best guys will be moved over and the rest will flutter around the numerous local shows, overseas shows, etc etc

If the UFC grabbed Alvarez, Askren and Lombard it would be total domination

All jokes aside, all the guys that miss out on UFC+The best guys from Japan when it all finally falls into complete disarray (not far now)=Good B-League.

Zuffa will need some competition. Hopefuly someone can build to that over the next few years, it's all UFC for now it seems.
