With Strikeforce now officially closing its doors, the influx of talent to the UFC roster has made for an interesting week in the sport.
While we keep an eye on fighters like Josh Barnett who haven't officially signed with the promotion yet, most of the top Strikeforce talent is now ready to make its transition to the Octagon.
For some of these fighters, the move has been a long time coming. For others, it's something that they had only dreamed of. But no matter their apparent "destiny," they will all be getting a chance to make a name for themselves on the biggest stage for mixed martial arts that the sport has ever seen.
It's bittersweet to see Strikeforce close its doors, but the opportunity to see some of the big fights that we've been asking for makes it a bit more palatable. No longer do we have to worry about Showtime contracts. It's finally time for some dream fights.
These are the seven best former Strikeforce fighters who are now ready to move onto the UFC.
