I don't give a rat's ass about the fights I've already seen versus a live FREE fight card that includes Fedor, Mousasi, Werdum and Shields vs. Mayhem. You knew the UFC would counter-program, that's a given, but it won't mean anything to me. If casual fans tune into old fights versus a free live card with these type of fighters they are simply moronic and only prove they follow UFC and not MMA fights while not realizing what they are missing.

Set your DVRs if you missed the old fights and enjoy a great free card that is being broadcast on a major network by a good organization that truly supports and showcases MMA and not the joke that was EliteXC.

It's a no-brainer IMO.

This is a company that signed a guy older than Randy Couture, Ken Shamrock or Mark Coleman that has never had a single MMA fight, lets not right them completly off as a joke yet. In all honesty Strikeforce is becoming more like Elite XC V2.0 every day.

This is also a company that is having the wife of Brandon Vera fight the ex wife of Randy Couture because of there upcoming fight at UFC 105. They seem pretty gimmicky to me so far.

UFC Counter Promotes

Ufc has an awesome line up that looks great to counter promote Fedor vs Rogers. http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/...9823&zoneid=13

Thoughts?

I guess besides a freebie event, this is the best that they could do. I don't think it's really going to hurt the Strikeforce ratings though.

Spike TV on Wednesday announced a stacked two-hour block of “never-before-seen on cable (non-pay-per-view)” counterprogramming to the Nov. 7 telecast of Saturday Night Fights on CBS.

“UFC Main Events” airs head-to-head with “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers,” both events starting at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Fedor vs. Rogers marks Strikeforce’s debut on CBS and Fedor Emelianenko’s first fight for the promotion.

Spike and the Ultimate Fighting Championship have lined up four of the UFC’s most highly regarded fights of the year from its three most recent pay-per-view events, highlighted by Randy Couture vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria.

The fights airing in the UFC Main Events telecast include the following:


UFC 102

RANDY COUTURE vs. ANTONIO RODRIGO NOGUEIRA

This highly-anticipated battle featured UFC legend and former heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Randy Couture against former Pride heavyweight and then UFC interim heavyweight king Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.


UFC 103

VITOR BELFORT vs. RICH FRANKLIN

A battle of veteran former UFC champions featured former light heavyweight champ Vitor Belfort returning to the Octagon against former UFC middleweight champ Rich Franklin.


UFC 101

B.J. PENN vs. KENNY FLORIAN

Lightweight champion B.J. Penn, in his second title defense, took on top contender Kenny Florian in a battle of Brazilian jiu-jitsu experts.


UFC 101

FORREST GRIFFIN vs. ANDERSON SILVA

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva moved up in weight class for a non-title bout against former UFC light heavyweight champ and “The Ultimate Fighter 1” winner Forrest Griffin.
No surprise here, they do that all the time.

This is actually some solid counter-programming but I'll be watching the SF card for sure.

On a side note 3DLee, try to quote the actual article next time, makes it easier for everybody. Thanks

Those are some really good fights the UFC is showing. I think they could actually steal some views from the mainstream fans who haven't seen these fights before.

That's a wicked counter, brah. Still gotta go with the live event though. This is Fedor we're talking 'bout.
