Strikeforce's issue is that they do have some very talented guys, but after the Top 2 or 3 in each division (bar possibly HW) their divisions are incredibly thin and often made up of guys that couldn't make it in the UFC. I still enjoy watching their shows, as any MMA is good MMA, but I'm looking forward to seeing some cards that aren't almost entirely predictable on paper, which, frankly, the last 2 have.
This. Alot of their fights are one-sided but I think there doin the best they can with what they got.. Obviously there are some really great matchups to put on but for every 1 competitive matchup there are 4 lopsided to go with it.
