I have to give it the UFC hype machine. Did anyone really think the former Strikeforce fighters would have this much success in the UFC? Here is the list of former Strikeforce fighters that have been champions or fought for the title. **list includes fighters under Strikeforce contract when it was purchased by the UFC** Champions: Robbie Lawler Tyron Woodley Fabricio Werdum Luke Rockhold Daniel Cormier Fough for Title: Bigfoot Josh Thomson Gil Melendez Overeem **scheduled to fight for title** Other notables: The Moose Jacare Tim Kennedy Almost Every Heavyweight that came over Bobby Green When Strikeforce was around it was always considered a distant second to the UFC. Turns out the gap was much smaller than every thought.
