UFC, Strikeforce go head to head on Saturday

Quote:
In two of the final major MMA events of 2011, the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Strikeforce go head to head with Saturday shows.
The UFC offers The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale, which concludes the latest season of its reality series. The card includes a full slate of non-“TUF” bouts, including the first fight with WEC fighters since the UFC-WEC merger. The show takes place at the Palms in Las Vegas and airs live on Spike TV at 9 p.m.
Strikeforce offers a card headlined by UFC vets and light-heavyweight notables Dan Henderson and Renato “Babalu” Sobral. The event airs 10 p.m. on Showtime from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
For the UFC, the TUF 12 Finale is a rather small event with minimal expectations. Anything north of 2 million viewers would be a success.
For Strikeforce, though, the show is one of the year’s biggest. But in the past week, former NFL great/MMA rookie Herschel Walker suffered a facial cut and pulled out of the fight, an elbow injury forced fellow main-card fighter Valentijn Overeem off the card, and popular St. Louis fighter Jesse Finney gave up a preliminary-card fight due to an eye injury. Officials are scrambling to fill the spots.

Which one are you going to watch?

It should be quite obvious that the TUF finale will shit all over Henderson-Sobral ratings wise. TUF is a huge show, Stephan Bonnar is a big name, and then Henderson has never been a huge draw in the US. I'll watch both shows though. I'm interested to see how Henderson bounces back from the Shields loss; Paul Daley and Scott Smith should be a war; and if they manage to replace Overeem with Barnett to take on Silva that'd be a very intriguing match-up. Should be 2 very good cards, though the UFC will obviously win the ratings "war".

TUF final, I'm really invested this season and I'm not only looking forward to the finale but I'm also looking forward to the other fights.

I'm pulling for Bruce Lee-Roy vs Cody McKenzie as the under card extra fight.

The only fight on SF's card that even slightly intrigues me is Daley vs Smith. Will probably just watch that one later.

Hendricks vs Story makes the finale worth watching alone. Mix in getting to see if Maia has worked on some striking/takedowns or if Grove can find some consistency, the finalists and what should be an entertaining fight in Bonnar vs Pokrajac I will definitely be watching UFC.

If you want to see a bunch of overrated, older fighters that aren't relevant anymore then SF ftw!
