...Cormier is a great dude but I picked Barnett for the win. 2 factors: 1) Daniel's stand-up was sweet and drastically improved in his fight with Bigfoot. He busted his hand in that fight and has had a long lay off. He's not going to be where he was at in the bigfoot fight. His cardio/cagerust will be a factor. 2) Barnett will have better cardio plus the huge experience factor. If Cormier starts to gas early, Josh will put him on his back with an unexpected sweep. If Daniel is on his back and breathing heavy, Barnett will surf him out, move to side control and pull off a well-timed submission. Maybe an armbar or arm triangle. Cormier would have to hurt Josh early to pull off a victory. I don't see it happening. Barnett with a UD or late round submission...

Voted for Barnett by mistake. Anyhow, anybody remember that huge Grand Prix they held in SF ages ago? Whatever happened to that?

What a train wreck it has been. UFC buying them out before it was over which means the title is meaningless since fighters are already on their way to the UFC. Fedor getting knocked out early hurt it as well.

It had legitimacy as the tournament of the top heavyweights outside the UFC. Once Strikeforce got bought and UFC decided to close the heavyweight division it basically became a short cut to a title shot. At least one can only guess.

Well I'm going with the underdog of Daniel Cormier. The guy is only getting better and has a bright future. He can win this.

This is going to be a resounding end to Strikeforce's heavyweight division.

Anybody else excited for this card? 4 fights on this card that could easily hype me up on any given night.
