The influx of Strikeforce fighters has really begun

(You made it, Danny boy! The nightmare is over!)

Behold, the Schindler’s List of MMA:

HEAVYWEIGHT

Gian Villante (10-3 MMA, 3-2 SF)

MIDDLEWEIGHT

Josh Thomson (19-5 MMA, 10-3 SF, 2-1 UFC)

This isn’t the complete list – more fighters are being added to the roster every day. One big name not included is Josh Barnett, whose $250,000 price tag and history of dropping steroid bombs on promoters had many doubting he’ll be included in future UFC plans. But that may not be the case – in the wee hours of the morning, many astute MMA fans noticed a Josh Barnett profile page popping up on UFC.com, only to be removed from the roster list shortly after. WHAT DOES IT MEAN???
