All good things must come to an end.

And so ends Strikeforce, the promotion put on the map by Scott Coker and company that featured the best in state-side women’s MMA and fostered such stars as Ronda Rousey, Cung Le, Gina Carano, Gilbert Melendez, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and many more talented athletes.

Here’s how the MMA community reacted to Strikeforce’s final stand on Twitter:

We should just get rid of judges and flip a coin to see who won!!!

— Dana White (@danawhite) January 13, 2013


10 years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Now we have no WEC, no EliteXC and no Strikeforce

Nate Marquardt's leg might be the only thing that was victimized more than the Packers' rush defense tonight.

— Tristen Critchfield (@TCritchfield52) January 13, 2013


I lost some paper but it wasn't any kinda bloodbath..listening to commentating was more brutal than losing..they should play Sham at Gitmo

— Joey Oddessa(@MMAOdds) January 13, 2013


You guys don't think those plague lords that Barnett warned about have gotten to Marquardt, do you? Do you?!?!

— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) January 13, 2013


Is Rampage or Cecil Peoples in Marquardt's corner??? Let's not check any leg kicks ever...those don't really hurt at all #MMA

— Tommy Messano (@ULTMMA) January 13, 2013


Marquardt's thigh has the color, typography and nearly the size of Mars.

Marquardt's leg is the surprise star of AMC's Walking Dead season premier. #Strikeforce #UFC #MMA

Is this a Strikeforce nostalgia show or a Pride nostalgia show? Shoji or Matsui would feel at home fighting out of the blue corner tonight.

I mostly just want to see the San Francisco 49ers in the UFC now.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 13, 2013


It's so quiet in here, fans in different sections are literally yelling back and forth about whether or not to boo the main event.

— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) January 13, 2013


Why is Nate Marquardt, a guy who historically can't reference or interpret MMA rules and regulations, sponsored by an eTextbook company?

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 13, 2013


Kicking a bee hive / sky diving without a chute / calling out Frank Mir. #strikeforce

kruck gone hoarse off that yellin or he cryin. yall decide.

— GFKonMMA (@GFKonMMA) January 13, 2013


After these past two mismatches, it seems like the perfect time to replay Cung Le vs. Sammy Morgan.

— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) January 13, 2013


Staring has a lot of pretty good chins.

— Chuck Mindenhall (@ChuckMindenhall) January 13, 2013


Staring's defense is....really incredible. He just sees punches coming and looks like he just thinks "yep, that's gonna hurt" and eats it

— Brent Brookhouse (@brentbrookhouse) January 13, 2013


Seriously people, watch out for the plague lords out there.

— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) January 13, 2013


After listening to Barnett's post-fight speech, I kinda wish the flu had won.

— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) January 13, 2013


OK, that "Lord of the Rings" crap just put Kruck into a new stratosphere. He's approaching Superfoot Wallace territory.

— Mike Whitman (@mikewhitmanmma) January 13, 2013


Josh Barnett's hair been training with Chuck Liddell

It's obvious these @strikeforce fighters are coming to @ufc but god I hope these refs stay the hell where they are. #TapOutTilYouPassOut

— Yves Edwards (@thugjitsumaster) January 13, 2013


Mike Kyle just walked by me seconds after losing to Gegard Mousasi and said, "It's not in me anymore. That was my last one."

— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) January 13, 2013


And people wonder why no UFC fighters would come over to Strikeforce for a one timer.
