Wow, I had totally forgotten about this fight. This GP fizzled out in a big way. It blows my mind to think that not too long ago, people thought this might be what would put Strikeforce into real contention with the UFC. Things sure do change quickly.

Can you imagine, in the early days a complete tournament was done in one evening, today it takes over a year...

Under 3 months, their training camps will be underway around now, it's not long to go.

I think Cormier wins and everyone who does not know him now, will be raving about him after this fight. The only setback for Cormier is his age, but he can still do big things.

I think his getting that big sporlight on him after he makes his UFC debut tbh.

I've been on his nuts ever since the Palelei fight.

I like both guys, but see Josh taking this. Cormier is a beast but Barnett has the experience to dictate the pace and where the fight goes.

I cannot believe the turn of events... Stickeforce GP.... UFC buys them out.....then no GP for ages.
