Post Big Foot Silva, Dan Henderson And Others Discuss Zuffa Buying Strikeforce - 03-14-2011, 06:08 PM

What do the fighters think about the purchase?

- Big Foot Silva, Dan Henderson and others recently spoke about Zuffa's purchase of Strikeforce, here are some highlights…

Dan Henderson: "I don't know if it's the greatest thing to have everything under one roof again like it was when they took over PRIDE. It's just a concern. Hopefully things work out right. Obviously, I'm concerned for myself and future contracts, and also about other fighters, as well. It's tough for these guys to get paid well, especially if there's no competition."

Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva: "It excites me. The UFC is the No. 1 event on earth. The best fighters in the world are there. I would love to fight there. I'd love to fight Brock Lesnar and send him back to pro wrestling because I don't accept the fact that [he's] ranked No. 2. It's not personal; I don't know Brock. It's just professional."

Cesar Gracie: "(Strikeforce CEO) Scott Coker did what would be in his and his family's best financial interest. At the end of the day, he makes a few million bucks, and he's a happy camper. Is it going to be good for the fighters? We're going to wait and see."

KJ Noons: "If anything, it will help out Strikeforce. The UFC are a good company. I don't think it's a negative. I think it's a positive."

Josh Thomson: "As a fighter, that's the great thing about it. You don't worry about the business side of it all. You worry about going out there and performing.
