Dana looked like he didn't want to be there.
I think they're just sticking it to Showtime in all honesty, Strikeforce has a handful of elite fighters and guys like King Mo, Feijao, Mousasi, Rockhold, and Melendez are ****ed if they have an off night. People will instantly shit on them saying they can't hang with the UFC guys when the Strikeforce Champs are 2-1 against UFC Champs. Of course I don't think Rockhold could beat Silva or anyone outside of Dan Henderson a former SF Champ himself has a shot against Jones but I could see Melendez beating Edgar.
My prediction, attendance drops although I've read it'll be primarily based in Las Vegas and the ratings will drop and thus Showtime will try to pull out of the deal.
