On Strikeforce as competition for the UFC

Dana White: "Yeah, I worry about Strikeforce all the time. Come on. Do you know how long I've been hearing about this? First it was Affliction and then it's somebody else. No, I don't worry about Strikeforce. Strikeforce is a lower-level show where guys who aren't in the UFC can go and make some money.

In a way, he's right.

It was ShoBox that wanted Walker and Lasley on the main card. If Coker was in charge of matchmaking, the Lashley fight would have been postponed and the Walker fight would have been headlining a Challenger card.

He is right in a way.

Strikeforce is not on the same level as UFC.

TNA is not on the same level as WWE.

etc.


duh.

i don't think strikeforce is up to par with UFC just yet, but it's getting there. It's not like their roster completely sucks either, they have a lot of top tier and up and coming guys. It just needs a lil more time and explosure.

Heavyweights they got Fedor, Overeen, Silva, Rogers, Overeem, Werdum
LHW got King Mo, mousasi, and babalu
mw got jacare, lindland, lawler, shields, miller, henderson, le, Smith, Radach, and manhoef
ww zaromskis, diaz, hieron, and Woodley
lw Melendez, Thomson, Damm, Ishida, and Noons

So it's not bad, but quite up to par with UFC...yet, but not too far behind. And the alliance with DREAM and Bellator can't hurt. I think Dana's just starting to feel threatened by strikeforce.
