My DVR is almost full. But anyways I think it can still hold ufc and strikeforce before an overhaul though Like Strikeforce won't win the ratings game though, should've moved 105 up if they seriously wanted to contend with them.

Exactly. The card is aimed at 'UFC' fans that might not have paid for the cards. Names like Couture, Griffin and Franklin mean more than Emelianenko, Mousasi and Werdum to those fans.

Favourite Fighters:

HW: Junior Dos Santos
LHW: Gegard Mousasi
MW: Anderson Silva
WW: Georges St. Pierre
LW: Kenny Florian

This makes no sense whatsoever. They're not trashing the SF card, all they're doing is offering an alternative you CAN watch if you WANT. Agreeing with the post below yours, Nog/Couture was a better fight then Emelianenko/Rogers, that's just going to be a first round massacre.

LHW: Gegard Mousasi

Agreed but only four fights on Strikeforce? Really just four and two could be done in like 1 min, each? LOL

why waste money on Tivo.. Get a TV Tuner for your PC and your done.. a oen time $80(roughly) cost and you have your own Tivo.. wehre you can edit the shows how you want and burn them to disk if you like.. if you are using Vista or even better Windows 7 you need really nothing else to do this...

As for the casual fans.. we all now many.. it is up to us to expose them to the wider world of MMA ouotside the UFC.. I know I can in just a few clicks pull up any of those fights on the Free card on spike.. Show them to your freidns over the next few days.. or email them the links so they can watch them.. and tell them to tune into the strikeforce card.. There problem solved.. next?

I've gotten about 8 friends (who had no previous knowledge of MMA) PSYCHED for this Strikeforce card. If we all try a little, show some Mousasi highlights, some Shield's highlights, some Fedor and Rogers highlights, then say we can watch them ALL for free live on a channel everyone gets...


That's how MMA gets fans, and that's what Strikeforce is doing.
