Randy Couture Predicts That Strikeforce Will Fold Just Like The WEC | MMA NEWS
“Yeah, there are some questions there. I know the Showtime relationship with Zuffa has been rocky. I know they hoped to renew that relationship and build that relationship, but they weren’t able to pull that off. I think you’re gonna see the Strikeforce guys absorbed and plucked like they did the WEC. So, then the question is, is Ryan gonna be one of those guys they want to keep, or is he gonna be one of those guys that gets cut loose? Where are we gonna go with him? The Showtime contract’s up this year, so early next year, I think you’ll see something happen.”
“At the end of the day, it’s really Ryan’s decision. They’re not gonna do you any favors in the UFC. It’s the deepest division in their promotion, at 155. And, you only get one chance at it, really. I think Ryan’s right there. He’s knocking on the door, with the level of competition. He can do whatever he wants. I think he’s capable, but we’ll see where he ends up.”
On yesterday’s edition of Spike TV’s MMA Uncensored Live, former UFC light-heavyweight and heavyweight champion, Randy Couture, gave his prediction for the ZUFFA owned promotion of Strikeforce.
