Why does strikeforce even have titles? They are rarely defended and even when they are it is usually against someone who hasn't done anything to deserve a shot.
They have to have a belt because it looks good as part of Overeem collection, look at see for yourself.
Hey I wonder it they make another Belt for the GP Champ that would be cool, I sure I heard somewhere, probably somewhere in this threat they they are doing, and lets face it for at least a year that belt will hold more credibility than any other in MMA right now, they will have to repeat this event tho to maintain it status.
