Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Josh Gross of ESPN.com.
Breen and Gross discuss the story that will shape and form MMA in 2011, Zuffa's purchase of Strikeforce. The two discuss why the deal happened now, the events leading up to the sale, and what the immediate future will hold for Strikeforce. They also discuss the notion of such a deal being "good" or "bad" for MMA, and whether or not it's a valid question to pose.
The two also discuss the UFC's television deals and potential partners on the horizon, the future of women's MMA and whether or not there are viable promotions to become competition for the UFC in the near future.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
