    I'll wish both promotions good luck, because I have yet to see one of these "copromotion/fighter sharing" deals actually work out how it was meant to. Usually, if anything happens between the two at all, it's extremely one sided.


    Strike force/M1: Strikeforce got the shaft.
    Road/Bellator: nothing happened
    Invicta/Deep Jewels: Invicta got several Japanese fighters, Deep got nothing of note
    Rizin/Road,Bellator,etc: Rizin gets to borrow fighters, no noticeable upside for the others.

    yep, these are never 50/50 deals. Good luck to them I guess, but it's two promotions than I don't care about in 2017 so this doesn't affect me in anyway.

    While these deals often lopsided, they provide fighters more options and hopefully $.

    If Shannon Knapp agreed to a deal that is proper
    it should get both Invicta & Pancrase fighters in
    front of different crowds then what they would
    normally fight in front of plus it would help there
    resumes going over seas as far as experience
    goes.

    DEEP always tried to fight to keep their fighters especially the ones holding titles, or the very top. Pancrase I think has a better relation with UFC and will help move their champs along.

    WSOF/Pancrase: They announced it and then canceled it like two month after (IIRC)
