Wow

WOW am i impressed with strikeforce, international appeal (what bodog did) with manhoef, fedor, and moussasi the name game (what elite xc did very poorly) to many to list but a few are cung le, shamrock, lawler, shields, miller and obviously fedor moussasi and they bring an element of good fights kind of comparable to affliction


Recent Signings
TJ Noon
Melvin Manhoef
Trevor Prangley

What else can be done: get this talent exchange going because i want to see a few drem fighters in america and vice versa,
i could see a unifying of the dream/striekforce belts or superfights at the end of the year to see who is the best from each class
Sign a few more names: henderson, rosholt, browning?, war machine? and a few ufc/tuf vets and they are truly a threat to the UFC

Don't forget they've signed Ricardo Arona, are in talks with Lashley, and are scheduling a Fedor vs Barnett fight.


Not to mention, Mousasi wants to fight at least 4-5 times a year!

A bad bad bad name, he is a name because of his antics, not because of his fighting

Its Kj Noons and he is nothing to write home about.. 1# douche juice. Im convinced that his EliteXc episode was a paid fixed making of a shit fighter..

With that being said I think that Strikeforce is making a huge mistake not putting the titles as the main event. Same mistake Elite made and cashed in on Kimbo.. Look where is got them.

Yup but Arona has a massive knee injury.




And Fedor/Barnett is a Co promotion, I'm hoping Barnett can get his US license and join the ranks of SF!

Im a Kj Noons fan, but he doesnt really add a ton of legitimacy to Strikeforce seeing as he hasnt fought in a very long time and his most credible win against Diaz was a stoppage due to a cut. Melvin is very entertaining, but he also doesnt add any legitimacy to an organization when it comes to mma. The guy has very heavy hands and is a world class kickboxer, but he will continue to get eaten alive by anyone with a halfway decent ground game. Trevor Prangley is nothing special, another UFC reject that has been fighting nobodies apart from Santiago, who beat him. Strikeforce is doing a good job of adding guys with some name value (i think Melvin is a huge star outside of the U.S. actually) but they arent really adding any real top guys. They have Fedor, Shields, Diaz (well maybe), Mousasi, Thomson, Melendez, Rogers, Werudm (I dont think hes worth a damn, but other people seem to), and possibly Overeem. That seems ok, but its not to impressive if you consider that is the only real proven talent from all of there divisions combined. They are making some good moves, but they still have a long way to go in the roster department. Good luck to em.
