Strikeforce Results: The Real Winners and Losers from Melendez vs. Masvidal

Strikeforce lives!

The new era of Strikeforce on Showtime began on Saturday night, Dec. 17 following the news earlier in the week that the Zuffa-owned promotion signed a new two-year contract with the premium TV network.

Current lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez had been rumored to be heading to UFC where he would immediately be placed on the fast-track to a UFC title shot of his own against Frankie Edgar, but “El Nino” appears to be on the Strikeforce roster for the long haul. He headlined Saturday night’s show against Jorge Masvidal who was coming off of two big wins over Billy Evangelista and K.J. Noons.

Melendez dominated Masvidal on his way to a unanimous decision victory, but he wasn’t the only big winner from the event. There were also numerous people who were affected from the happenings that weren’t even directly involved with it themselves.

Let’s take a closer look at the real winners and losers from Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal.
