I really wanted to see all 5 round fights in the tournament.

The guy that beats Overeem will be the current champion in my eyes.

Me too.

They should have just never did the crappy Rogers fight and stripped Overeem and said they were doing this tourney for the vacant HW belt.

to be fair this will all be irrelevant when Overeem rips through them all in Round 1!

Even stranger is the fact that Fedor or Werdum could beat Overeem and not win the tournament. That's the weird part! Beating the champion and getting NOTHING!

but don't worry: Overeem will win this and get his 4th belt. As the tournament winner he will challenge Overeem (The HW champ) and lose LOL
Honestly i am just happy we will get to see great fights!

BELIEVE!

This is stupid. Why dont they just make Overeems three round fights title fights? The guy has the potential to fight three times in the organization in which he is the champion and not defend his title in any of the three? Even when Strikeforce does something awesome like this heavyweight tournament (although its not really a tournament anyhow), they still manage to add a level of retardation to it.

Exactly! And then they can schedule the rematch over in Dream for both belts, if that is actually possible

Why so much hate on this decision? It's not their fault that they can't make much sense with the grand prix when the champion, Alistair Overeem is taking part as well. I'm actually liking the idea that Overeem's belt isn't in the line, it would take so much away from the final, if he didn't make it there.

Remember these rules aren't set in stone, whose to say Coker wont change his mind if Overeem makes it to the final? If he's in the finals he might just make it a title fight for the belt, and the GP belt. Never know

Having a Pride Belt and Defending it twice is more credible then anything Overeem has,no one cares about his Duffee belt or his Buentello Belt.




HW: Fedr
LHW:Cormier
