Great fight, but why is it part of the tournament? If Overeem wins, is he going to challenge for his own belt? If Werdum wins, does he have to beat Overeem again to become champion? This is assuming the point of the tournament is a title shot; if that's not the case, then the question is what is the point of the tournament?

I think its pretty obvious the winner will be champion, ether the Title will start with Overeem and follow down the chain each timw the Reem or the new champ fights, or the belt will be made vacant until the tournament is complete and the winner will be crowned the new champ, ether way doe snot matter the winner is the champ at the end of the tourney.

Did Strikeforce just schedule a fight that actually makes sense? I'm in shock. Reem better win, and Fedor better win so they HAVE to fight each other.

If Overeem wins this fight which I am predicting he will, then it will start to build his credibility. It will be his first top 10 HW win in a long time if ever. I have Werdum ranked around #5 right now. Say Overeem beats Werdum, then beats Arlovski/Barnett, and beats Fedor I would move him into the top 5 in the HW rankings. Granted Arlovski and Barnett are not top 10 he would have beaten 2 fighters who are around the top 5 ranked. Lets see if he can do it though. Werdum will be a big test for him.

Not even Strikeforce matchmaking is that messed up.

Why wouldn't he? Instead of wondering why a guy wants the #1 contender....why not actually applaud him for not trying to make it an easy road?

Its amazing the people that want "top fighters" to look out for their best interest...rather than truly try to challenge themselves. Fighters that want to take on the best are true fighters. Werdum beat Fedor...the Werdum/Overeem fight should have happened anyway. Glad they are meeting in the 1st round.

I hope so. I am a big Werdum fan. He was done wrong by the UFC and has been done wrong by SF. Would be hilarious if he beat the 2 fighters everyone is saying are the best in the world. People still wouldn't give him credit. And would continue to rank Reem and Fedor over him.
