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.
Agreed. When you have alot of mismatches you tend to have more finishes generally. Though sometimes Dana White laughs at StrikeForce miss matchmaking but sometimes Joe Silva isint perfect either. Plenty of times where the UFC had obvious mismatches but generally the rest of it is pretty evenly matched thats why you alot of times you see stalemates. But it was still pretty entertaining anyways. StrikeForce card was fun to watch last night, though I dont really watch much SF, sometimes people want to see someone just beating down the other guy instead of guys duking it out evenly to a crawl.
