It came as a shock Saturday morning when news broke about Zuffa, the parent company of the UFC, buying out Strikeforce MMA. When it comes to women’s MMA there are few bigger than the San Jose based promotion. One of the major questions asked throughout the women’s mma community is what will happen to the division in the future? Dana White, the UFC President, is not a fan of women’s mma fights stating that, “There aren’t enough good fights out there.”
White went on record saying that Strikeforce would be its own separate entity, and Scott Coker, the President of the company, would still be in charge of the day to day operations. “Business as usual,” was White’s continued comments throughout the interview he conducted with Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting.
However, the future is still uncertain. Fightergirls has gather four of the top women’s mma journalists, plus up and coming strawweight fighter Sarah Goodlaxson to talk about the historic buyout in a special ½ hour podcast. Besides Goodlaxson, the panel includes:
