They may not lose viewers but he is possibly the second best fighter they have in there weakest division.

That's possible. I've just never really seen Heiron as a great fighter. I wonder if he's hitting up SF for to much money or maybe trying to pick and choose who he fights... he may have been more trouble than he's worth....

I know K.J. Noons says he wants to move up and challenge, and you have Tyron Woodley moving around WW... Andre Galvao is an exciting prospect.

Zaromskis was a bust and Scott Smith ain't gonna do much. Cyborg will probably go 2-3 at WW before moving back up.

Jay Heiron, I didn't see him beating Diaz. Or Aoki for that matter if STRIKEFORCE brought him in for that fight... I can see him getting dusted by Woodely too..

Heiron is an average fighter who isn't really a threat to any title. If he goes into the UFC he's gonna get destroyed by probably the top 10 at WW over there.

I can see Heiron going to DREAM, Sengoku, or Bellator!

I doubt he would accomplish anything in the UFC but in Strikeforce he is at the least a top 5 WW if not top 3 or top 2 and I don't think he is a guy they can afford to lose. They offered him a title fight the other guy skipped his drug test and suddenly he is on the undercard while Mr. I Don't show up for drug tests has been rewarded with big fights and a rebooked title fight against a different fighter. Strikeforce has really screwed Hieron.

Screwing Heiron is a possibility, but there really is not a way to tell...Coker doesn't have the "ruthless buisness man" reputation, comes off to basically cater to almost all of his fighters...

I wonder if Heiron was pulling anything from his side.

I think Jay can become a a top 10 guy. I might be biased, because I've been a fan of his for quite sometime. I think he can beat the likes of Hardy or Kampman.
