    According to Meltzer, Showtime executives became a bit paranoid with the UFC poaching fighters like Nick Diaz, Dan Henderson, and Alistair Overeem in 2011 after purchasing Strikeforce. In reaction to that, they wrote in a clause to the new deal that would prohibit several top names in Strikeforce from fighting in the UFC as long as Showtime airs MMA. That bars several top names from being signed with the UFC even after their contracts expire, and the UFC agreed to the deal

    That's a good idea, but a little late now SHOWTIME.......you've already butchered your entire lineup worth watching.

    I wonder how long Gilbert Melendez is gonna waste away in Strikeforce. I still put my money on Ben Henderson if they fight, but I'd like to see him fight some the top guys in the UFC. I've read rumors that they're talking about a 4th fight against Josh Thomson. I didn't even want to see the last one.

    ^ Stay on good terms with SHOWTIME if the FOX deal doesn't work out.......another network to fall back on perhaps?

    My volume doesn't work at the moment, I'm gonna check it out on another cpu when I get home. But I wonder if Rolyer is still pissed that Eddie Bravo choked him out at Abu Dhabi back in 03' haha.

    Wow, the main card was horrible tonight. The prelims were pretty good, but it went downhill fast. Props to Barao beating Faber though.

    Great main card last night. Can't complain with four finishes. That Joe Lauzon and Jamie Varner match was off the hook. It was nice to see Mike Swick return and get a win. Machida gets the next crack at Jon Jones with his KO over Bader.

    Only caught the co-main, and main events last night. Machida punked bader out hardcore making him look like an amateur; Machida has slowly turned into one of my fav fighters to watch, even though he's criticized for his unorthadoxed style.....he's a counter puncher who draws you in, what do you expect?

    And Shogun looks to continue to get better with age, he still looks awesome.
