Should have kept strikeforce as a farm league, you know, for young guys to get experience and for guys who get cut after 1 or 2 losses to get a chance to bounce back.

Strikeforce should have definitely been used to send talent and personalities (that you don't really want to lose) like Dan Hardy who had a string of losses in a row to build them back up to send them into the UFC.

Start collecting talent early, throw them in Strikeforce, if they prove themselves (or re-prove themselves) send them to the big show.

Showtime wasnt gonna pay for that. Dana wanted control to see what he can do but SHowtime said no and he said fuck it.

Showtime was not gonna pay big money to get Jamie Varner/Melvin main events with TUF fighters and prospects.

It ends up being why the hell are we putting on these lower events, same happened with WEC, its not gonna make money and right now Zuffa should be focusing 100 percent attention on the UFC.
