    I am beyond excited that swallowing up SF will give use some stacked-as-hell cards in the near future to look forward to. If you want to check out who is CONFIRMED to be coming over check this helpful thread:

    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f2/helwani-confirms-tarec-mousasi-gian-villante-rockhold-2358107/

    This thread will be a resource for the REST of notable SF fighters, hopefully to see if any of us can add any news for everyone else as to what is going on with the guys NOT on the other list.

    Barnett + Sergei are now the main hold-outs

    Can anyone shed light as to their situations, or post any news as it comes in? Or post more guys I left out so we can add them to the "watch for news" list?

    EDIT FOR NEW NAMES:
    Quinn Mulhern, Danill Villefort, Yuri Villefort, Justin Wilcox

    UPDATE FOR MASVIDAL: Fighting Tim Means April 20 (UFC of FOX 7)
    UPDATE FOR KYLE: He has retired unfortunately (http://www.mmamania.com/2013/1/13/3...e-kyle-to-retire-from-mma-following-defeat-to)
    UPDATE FOR FEIJAO: Fighting Thiago Silva in June (UFC on Fuel 10)
    UPDATE FOR OSP: Fighting Gian Villante at the end of April (UFC 159)
    UPDATE FOR JOSH: Declined so far (http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/2/6/3960726/josh-barnett-officially-declines-ufc-contract-offer)
    I'VE GOT NOTHING ON SERGEI STILL

    ANOTHER UPDATE:

    Feijao is rumored to be fighting for the Ufc in April. This is what he's told those around him.

    Yes, he was signed to fight Quinn Mulhern but the whole event was cancelled.

    Cool thanks. This sort of thing is exactly why I made this thread. Can't wait to see him in April then.
    Man I just remembered OSP's last KO at the Rousey show. Hope he gets signed...

    You sure Misaki retired by the way?

    fucking stacked. For the first time there's just one or two guys outside of the UFC, all the rest we get to see fight. This is going to be a great year

    I want to see Barnett pillage the HW division. It'd be a travesty if he doesn't get signed.

    Lady Cyborg most likely. Man Cyborg left Strikeforce after his last fight and King Mo signed with Bellator.

    Sergei hasn't been with SF for better part of 2012. This summer he said he was offered UFC contract and didn't like the money.
    He is not coming to UFC.

    "Strikeforce Fighters" have proved their mettle against "UFC Fighters" *since* the Zuffa acquisition in 2011 (based on the fighter's Promo Org-affiliation at the time)....

    Strikeforce > UFC:
    Overeem > Brock
    Werdum > Roy Nelso
    Werdum > Russow
    Big Foot > Browne
    Lavar > Barry
    Lavar > Beltran
    Hendo > Shogun
    Cung > Franklin
    Cung > Cote
    Brunson > Leben (?)
    Diaz > BJ Penn
    Scaffiedine > Marquardt^
    Jacare > Ed Herman
    Peralta > Mike Lullo (?)
    Peralta > Jason Young (?)

    UFC > Strikeforce:
    Big Foot > Velasquez
    Lavar < Struve
    Shane < Stipe
    Shane < Barry
    Griggs < Browne
    Griggs < Diabate
    Miller < Bisping (?)
    Miller < Dollaway (?)
    Cung < Wanderlei
    Nick < Condit
    Woodley < Marquardt^

    Missing any?


    (?) - Not sure if Peralta or Brunson was officially signed with Strikeforce BEFORE the Zuffa acquisition happened. Not sure if Jason Miller was still with Strikeforce at the time.
    ^ - Not "released" due to poor fight performance


    P.S. - Not counting fights that happened BEFORE Zuffa acquisition (e.g., Jake Shields was already with the UFC as of March/April 2011):
    Shields > Kampmann
    Shields > Ed Herman
    Shields > Akiyama
    Nick > Paul Daley^
    Woodley > Paul Daley^
    Kazuo Misaki > Paul Daley^
    ---
    Shields < GSP
    Shields < Ellenberger
    Scott Smith < Paul Daley^


    P.P.S. -Not counting fighters who were signed with Strikeforce AFTER the Zuffa acquisition happened:
    Shawn Jordan > Oli Thomson
    ---
    Shawn Jordan < Kongo
    Maximo Blanco < Marcus Brimage
