Some interesting matches at HW for sure...

I think its weird that everyone talks about how the heavyweight division used to be so thin and now that a bunch of them are in SF they talk about how deep the division is. WTF?

As in "thin" in the world of MMA?

That's easy. They were all scattered. Now they are being consolidated...

Add Herman, Monson and Duffe... and STRIKEFORCES HW division would be freakin nasty..

It's already getting interesting.

...Barnett is a good addition. Lots of experience & skill. If Monson gets lured in, a fight between Barnett & Monson would be a very good one. As far as him fighting Fedor, he can't duck him this time. My best regards to the fighter who faces a fresh, refocused Emelianenko...

...Right on Rival. You're positive raving on Strikeforce is true and is causing much anticipation for me as well...

Very, very good signing by SF.

Fedor, Alistair, Josh, Werdum, Rogers, Antonio, Arlovski, even Kyle is decent.

SF has some some solid, and in regards to Werdum, Josh, Alistair and Fedor, VERY serious HW talent.

I am excited to see Josh back in the fold.

I'm, loving the talent in the HW division in Strikeforce. I hope they sign Monson and Duffee as well. Not to mention, they just signed Masvidal and Daley.

Lavar "Big" Johnson is still floating around the SF HW division as well. Hope he's finally fully recovered. That recovery took alot out of him and it was obvious in the Mahe fight...

But coming back so fast after multiple gunshot wounds showed alot. He's always been a beast. I've been wanting to see Johnson/Arlovski or Rogers for while now..

It's a good signing for SF, but can the guy even fight in the US? Doesn't he still need to address the California commission? I'm pretty sure other states will enforce bans on fighters from other states.

Anyway, Barnett didn't look so hot in his last fight and I hope they let him work up a little slowly.

It's kind of ridiculous comparing the SF heavyweight division with the UFC's if only for the reason that the UFC doesn't let their fighters go elsewhere to fight or duck opponents.

Until SF gets a handle on their fighters, don't talk to me about how great the SF heavyweight division is.

There gonna be a vBookie bet for how long it takes Barnett to get caught using steroids again?

Edit: 1200 posts!!

Damn, that 200 came fast...
