An Oral History of Strikeforce

I just wrapped up the last chapter in my oral history of Strikeforce series and wanted to share it with those on the UG that are interested in this sort of thing. This final article covers the sale to Zuffa, with Scott Coker, Frank Shamrock, Cung Le, Josh Thomson, Conor Heun, Gilbert Melendez, Tim Kennedy, Pat Healy, Pat Miletich, Mike Kogan, Javier Mendez, Cesar Gracie, Bob Cook, Ken Hershman, Shannon Knapp, and a bunch of the former Strikeforce all participating. (Unfortunately no one from Zufa responded to my requests)

I just read it. Good stuff. Phone Post 3.0

More people need to be reading and discussing this, especially the part that addresses the "SF was losing money so they had to sell."

Or we could make some more threads about imaginary fights.
