    WSOF, comes to mind as well as Invicta but, Legacy, Shark fights and MFC, do not have the roster to make Showtime happy. Showtime does want mma but, they want REALLY GOOD mma.

    What do you guys think they can do

    This was destined to be a joke thread.

    I have always liked King of the Cage. One of the best run regional mma companies. Tachi palace ?

    probably going to be OneFC though people like the semi pride rules and they pick up all the used to be UFC fighters.

    Nothing right now IMO. Don't think Invicta, OneFC, Tachi Palace, Shark Fights, etc. are big enough. Bellator is obviously not an option and I thought WSOF already had a TV deal, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Id like to see them add a promotion and then add Invicta to it, so they have 2. They could even sign the fighters that dont get signed by Zuffa.

    Their best bet might be to sign more than one promotion.

    WSOF and Invicta, each could probably do 5 shows a year.

    They def have to sign multiple orgs but no org they sign will have near the talent or names SF had so putting on a few orgs just to fill out dates and get the best card possible makes sense.

    If you signed a deal with WSOF for 10 shows a year each show might not be the best but if you split that with another org and WSOF only has to do 5 shows a year each show they do can be the best fight card they can make. Its better to do multiple orgs than sign one org and try and spread them too thin doing 10 plus shows a year.

    WSOF and Invicta is my guess.
