With Strikeforce getting ahold of Dan "Hendo" Henderson, they have bumped up their talent level. I believe that this is more than just a good signing. This move could do good or bad for both the UFC and Strikeforce.

If Dan Henderson were to lose his first fight or not amount to much in Strikeforce, it will hurt the UFC's reputation. Strikeforce would have just shut down one of the UFC's top contenders. On the other hand, if Henderson cleans out Strikeforce then it could be detrimental to the growth of Strikeforce. An ex-UFC fighter who wasn't even a champion beat everyone that Strikeforce put in with him. It is a risky move for both parties, but in my opinion, it is more risky for Strikeforce.

If Henderson loses in Strikeforce, the UFC can spin it and say that he was washed up and that the Strikeforce fighters would never beat an actual UFC champion. If Henderson is to do great things in Strikeforce, then Strikeforce can't really explain how a non UFC champion beat all of their fighters.

All in all, if Henderson is to stay in Strikeforce until he is finished with fighting, then this is a great move for Strikeforce either way. If Henderson beats his opponents in Strikeforce and then returns to the UFC, it will most definitely put a dent in Strikeforce's reputation.

Another problem with Henderson going to Strikeforce is that Strikeforce will more than likely have Henderson headlining fight cards. To the hardcore fan this could be a great thing. The problem is that most casual fans are naturally more attracted to the UFC, so they will not be as interested in Henderson headlining an event as they would be in a UFC headliner. Dan Henderson is not as big of a draw as Strikeforce more than likely thinks.

I think that this is very risky for Strikeforce. This could either be a huge success, or a huge failure. Either way I will be sitting back and watching to find out.

What does it take to be the best in the world? Do you have to be an exciting fighter? Do you have to have a flawless record? Do you have to appeal to the fans around the world? I don't believe so. To be considered the best fighter in the world, a fighter must constantly prove that he or she is still the best fighter in the world. It is not a lifelong title.

Many fans believe that Fedor Emelianenko is the best pound for pound fighter in the world. They justify him fighting in Strikeforce by saying that he has already fought the best of the best in the past. Although this may be true, it proves nothing other than the fact that he was the best back then. To be legitimately considered the best in the world today, he must face the best fighters in the world today.

There is no doubting Fedor's amazing abilities as a fighter. But as all fighters do, Fedir will age, and he will begin to slow down. The only way to truly see where a fighter is at is to see them face the best of the best. Fedor is very possibly the best fighter in the world. It just needs to be proven time and time again.

Saying that Fedor Emelianenko is the best in the world because he has beaten top fighters in the past is like saying that the Wachington Redskins are the best team in football because they won a few superbowls in the past. The best sports teams are decided every year. They do not have title's like this. They must prove year after year that they are the top team. Fighters must do the same.

When an amazing fight takes place between two elite fighters, it can be an extremely exciting event. What makes it even more exciting is when the fights are so close and competitive that fans cant tell who the clear cut winner was. One of the more exciting fights that took place very recently was the Light Heavyweight title bout between Lyoto Machida, and Shogun Rua.

This fight was a fantastic battle from start to finish. It was an extremely close fight. Many fans disagree but the fact of the matter is, the reason there is such a big dispute going on right now, is because of how close that fight actually was.

I find myself wondering why so many fans are becoming so angry with the outcome of this fight. I completely understand being a loyal fan and wanting your fighter to do great. We all feel that way towards our favorite fighters. But this should not prevent us fans from appreciating what a tremendous show was put on by two great warriors. Instead of becoming so angry with other people, fans should rather be looking foward to the future rematch of these two fighters that will hopefully be just as exciting as their first meeting.

MMA fans need to find the middle ground where they can be disappointed because of their fighter losing, but also be appreciative of the tremendous show that they watched. Even when a controversial decision is given, it does not change that fact that those two fighters were out there fighting for their fans, and they did not disappoint. These fighters left everything in the cage, and they are definitely warriors in my book.
