In pro wrestling they build stars the same way but they get guarantee the guy they are building wins in MMA shit happens and sometimes your horse doesn't win the race.
I agree but the problem is that they are picking the wrong guys. Mo and Rogers just aren't that good. They should be looking to build their company around guys like Melendez and diaz. Obviously anyone can get Matt Sera'd. But honestly I didn't think Mo was going to beat Feijao. Also they now that Werdum is out, they need to make Overeem vs Werdum, so their HW title actually has some credibility.

No, actually the opposite imo. New talent winning will pay off much betetr especially when they build rep over some matches.

As mentioned in the thread, their lack of marketing is going to hurt them most and will probably run them out of business.

The only reason I knew about the challenger's event was that there was a stack of fliers at the gas station i happened to fill up at.

The irony is though- I only know if Strikeforce events are being televised when the UFC has some kind of special on on a saturday, like recent PPV's and such. Then it clicks in my mind "Ooooh counterprogramming, let's see what SF is doing." or I wouldn't have seen a single SF TV event.

Right now I think Strikeforce's only problem is the lack of depth in the divisions. There are very few really good fighters that are not already with the UFC, and those who aren't are with Strikeforce already.
