The UFC is set to acquire an influx of talent now that Strikeforce is set to cease operations. Strikeforce arguably has the second-deepest roster in MMA, so it should benefit the UFC quite a bit.
With guys like Gegard Mousasi, Daniel Cormier and Gilbert Melendez ready to make their transition to the big show, UFC fans are salivating over the fights that they could soon see in the Octagon.
Here are the fighters from Strikeforce who have already been announced to fight under the UFC banner.
Note: Heavyweights are not included because they have already made their move to the UFC (except for Daniel Cormier and Josh Barnett). Also, this discusses the recent migration of talent since the announcement of Strikeforce's demise, so guys like Nick Diaz and Dan Henderson were excluded by design.
