strike force will probably be their minor league

Strikeforce will eventually be merged into UFC. It is gonna be a few years until they can do this as Showtime has a few years left on their contract. Once they can get rid of Showtime, Strikeforce will be no more. Its all about the fact that UFC is looking at holding events almost every week with even more events overseas. They want to make a lot more money.

they could sign a deal with a major network and do a show.

Yes minor league, it's a good idea. Once strikeforce fighters contracts are up they will most likely be signed to the UFC or released.

Minor league only works if they keep strikeforce together

that's right, and you can't tell me if they had a GSP type of dominate fighter that he wouldn't be put in the "Big Leagues" in a big ppv vs. a GSP or Silvia.

Dont hold out hope for Fedor as he is still with M-1.

Also if you want to see Overeem in the UFC he would have to give up K-1 most likely
