None of these guys are making it out of the second with Overeem anyways but this is still stupid as hell. How does it even matter that Overeem's fights would have championship rounds? It isn't a real tournament. He isn't fighting more than once a night so the other fighters don't gain an advantage.

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.

Just because they don't fight more then once in one night doesn't mean it isn't a tournament.

It's only the final rounds of the K-1 and PRIDE tournaments where you do that anyways.

K1 tournaments are 3 in one night so 8 fighters the same as this "tournament" everything before that is qualifiers and even some of those are 3 in one night tournaments. This is in no way a tournament. The top 4 fighters are on one side of the bracket by design not random draw and they aren't fighting more than once a night. As I said when this was announced and someone else pointed out with an image with a "ufc grand prix" bracket everything the UFC does is a tournament by these standards. Except titles are actually defended against contenders.

I agree. Overeem will be simply fighting #1 contender. The fight between Fedor and Bigfoot will determine #2 contender. Everyone on the right side is too far in the rankings for fighting the guys from the left side. So the entire side will reveal the best one from the worst and hence the contender #3. Sounds more like intelligent marketing move from SF to get more attention (and a successful one), especially when you take into consideration the fact that Overeem's title was initially expected to be on the line in every single 5-round fight. Later, this idea was dropped, so that the tournament would become more believable when in reality it's just revelation of one-year plan. The champion fighting #1 contenders throughout this year while the others trying to earn this #1 contender status. Structure is very simple, everything else is a beautiful veil.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Basically in the end of the Grand Prix if Overeem makes it to the finals. I agree that Fedor is basically the number two contender. But overall the Grand Prix seeding is a little confusing!
