Silva vs Fedor is a good start imo, I am sure SF can make this work, I dont see why everyone doubts them so much, they have the fighters on the books they need now to do this, now its time they give us the fights, just because we did not get all the potential fights we wanted to see the instant they signed up the fighters, does not mean we wont get to see them

Just give them time I say its a new division and we have only see the start of what it can offer, now I bet we will soon see its full potential.
Taking part in the tourny would be a horrible idea for Duffee right now. The guy needs to go face some lower level competition right now and really work on the things he sucks at. He clearly isnt ready to compete at the top right now.

I just saw the Werdum/Rogers is also in the works. WTF Strikeforce!?! This is how you reward Werdum for stopping the best heavyweight on the planet inside of one round? By giving him the worlds hardest hitting can in Rogers? That is a ridiculous fight and I would be super pissed off if I were Werdum.

The fights we should see are:

Fedor vs Silva
Andrei Arlovski vs Josh Barnett (if he can get licensed)
The Reem vs Fabricio Werdum
Brett Rogers vs Todd Duffee (if they sign him)/Daniel Cormier/Lavar Johnson/Shane Del Rosario

Should be entertaining, gotta love a tournament, but it proves how slim the SF division is considering Brett Rogers and potentially Todd Duffee would be regarded Top 8. I'd love to see a worldwide 8 man HW tournament, would be so, so awesome:

Cain Velasquez vs Junior Dos Santos
Fedor Emelianenko vs Fabricio Werdum
Brock Lesnar vs Frank Mir
Shane Carwin vs Alistair Overeem

Now THAT is a mother****er of a tournament. Imagine the PPV numbers that'd draw, those are some epic match-ups. Just need Strikeforce, DREAM and M-1 to fold and it'll be possible.

As for this tournament, we can only hope that the match-ups work out as expected, and we finally get to see The Reem vs Fedor. I think that's a fight every MMA fan wants to see, and seemingly everyone but M-1 want to see. Would be the ultimate Test for Alistair and one that would propel him into the Top 3 legitimately. Just hope we have no complications and this gets booked, until we see the tournament in full swing I'm not holding my breath though. I'd still be surprised if Fedor and Barnett end up fighting in a tournament. Fedor will probably destroy Silva, then waste another year re-negotiating his contract; and if Barnett actually gets licensed we'll just have to hope he doesn't piss hot after the fight.

Are you talking about the Werdum who had the chance offered to him to fight Overeem for the belt on a plate but instead decided he did not want to straight after he beat Fedor.

Can't say I blame him really if I was Werdum and had been talking shit about Overeem for the last couple of years because I had a win over him in the past, I too would look at the Reem now and decide that maybe fighting him is not such a good idea.

I think he was just hoping to take the hype he won over beating Fedor and finish his SF contact with an easy opponent to keep that hype alive, then go and hide away from the Reem at the UFC. But now I think he knows his plan wont work because all the hype is now on the Reem and if he runs away without facing him everyone will see it as him dodging the Reem, his old win on him is not going to cut him an excuse any more.

At least him losing to Rogers gets him out of the beating the Reem would of given him.

Hopefully he will but he hasnt been mentionned in the SD article and he stated several times he couldnt make it to SF before April, May or June of 2011. According to that article again the 1/4s will take place in Feb and March.

Its really hard to tell what the hell is actually going on behing the scences at Strikeforce. Dana White is a big douche sometimes, but you can at least give him credit for making the UFC's matchmaking at least somewhat public. He will generally tell the fans if a dude was offered a fight.

Strikeforce is such a ridiculous organisation that it's not even funny. Werdum, who is on a 3 fight win streak, which includes a win over Fedor, who at the time was arguably one of the best fighters in the world, has to win 3 more fights to get the title fight, while Rogers got it right after he.. lost to Fedor? And on top of that, while this tournament goes on, Overeem will not defend his belf for more then a year yet again.. Wait, did I say this is ridiculous? Well, I take my words back, Strikeforce obviously know what they're doing..

Nope, nearest UFC event to Feb 12th is 126, on the 5th. They'll probably just replay one of the cards, Edgar vs Maynard II maybe; or put together a compilation featuring Pettis vs Henderson, Edgar vs Maynard, and the 126 FOTN, possibly Silva-Belfort or Jones-Bader. There will definitely be some competitive programming from the UFC though, that's obvious.

Strikeforce blows so much why isn't Werdum fighting Overeem for the belt no one gives a **** about Werdum/Rogers. Just get some other can for Rogers to fight.

But osmium, do you really want to see that beatdown?

I mean the Reem probably finsihes him most likely in the first round already. Terrible matchup for Werdum, don't you think so?
