yea but that was quite awhile ago and the UFC HW division was more thin than it is now.

SFs isnt. They have alot of talent there, there is no reason to do this with their belt.

Nobody is disrespecting SFs HW title more than the Champion who doesnt care to defend it and the organization itself who doesnt care to find him worthy challengers in a pretty solid stable.


This is why non exclusive contracts dont work. Guys just say "nah i dont wanna fight so and so, ill go fight in japan or dubai or where ever".

Hello. Strikeforce hasn't come close to it's peak with its roster. They're building from the dust up right in front of our eyes.

Did they have available #1 contender talent at the time? Are you sure of this? No you can only speculate who was available. But you don't know.

See here's the thing. Overeem has only said no once. One time. And that was recently to Fedor. Fedors camp refused to fight Alastair when Overeem challenged... Now Fedor is coming off of a loss and he wants a title shot?? Of course Alastair is gonna say no.

Do you want to know why Alastair never defended his title in all that time?? Because Scott Coker never offered him anybody after Buentello. Strikeforce never put together a championship fight for Alastair Overeem. Coker had nobody. It was a local California organization. A small show. The public purchase of assets and fighter contracts from EliteXC is when the big fights began unfolding and did Alistair run back the first day?? No. But he did take the first fight he was offerd.

They have to ask. If Scott can't get them a fight they ask to fight elsewhere. I think non exclusive contracts are the best thing that a fighter could ever have. Because he has to feed his family. And fighting puts food on his table. If he needs a fight. He needs a fight.
