Check out the full list of Strikeforce fighters that will transition to the UFC

Pretty soon we’re going to be forced to amend our list of the Top Ten MMA Organizations We Really, Really, Really Miss Alot. Since we compiled that feature, Proelite, WEC, DREAM (although it has been resurrected), Sengoku, and Strikeforce have all been sacrifices to the MMA deities — or Dana White. This path the sport is on — it simply does not leave room for error. Bellator, ONE FC, DREAM, Titan FC and WFL are all that remain (aside from a few local promotions, far too many to name). We’re not sure when the next great ‘alternative’ is going to feel the blade of the deadly flying guillotine, but it will happen — and we’ll be right here on MiddleEasy to tell you about it (and hand you a tissue).

MMAJunkie released a list of the fighters announced by ZUFFA that will transition from UFC to Strikeforce, so we thought it would be important to share that same list with you. Now, who out there can compile a list of the ‘Top ten fighters we wanted to move to UFC from Strikeforce but didn’t?’ Someone out there is savvy enough to come up with ten names. Help us create a new top ten list and we’ll give you credit in the feature. Seriously!
