Screw Werdum, although I respect the fact he is a talented fighter, after his post fighter interview in the ring after just beating Fedor and the way he went on about blowing off the title shot he won against the Reem and going back to the UFC to face Brock, disrespecting the company they took him in and gave him the biggest fight of his career and there title.

Fcuk him he deserves the first round beat down he is going to get by the Reem, then let him fcuk off back to the UFC if they even want him after that.

Frankly, I do not want to see him winning the tournament. I see him being crushed by Alistair rather easily. I was just trying to look at the situation from his standpoint. Fedor vs Overeem is what I anticipate to see and the winner will win the entire GP in my opinion. And now I'm starting to like the idea of Fedor beating Overeem in semi final, then facing Alistair again, but that time for the belt. Overeem vs Fedor I/II sounds very enticing. On the other hand if Overeem wins this, then he must go to the UFC because SF has nobody else to fight with. I mean how can you occupy #1 spot by not beating UFC champion? And this is Alistair's ultimate goal, I assume.

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

Easy win this GP and then you woudl argue the UFC champ needs to beat you to become No.1

Seriously take Lesser for example before he even lost to Cain, how did his achievements even get him in to the top 10 never mind No.1, the UFC division is a joke, but it may be a goof retirement plan for the someone like the Reem should he win to make some money after he is finished proving he is the No.1

You think his only two choices were have only three round fights in every fight, or only five round fights? That seems hard to believe.

Why would any commission object to there being title fights as part of a tournament? I can't think of any reason.

What I want to know, is if the 4th judge is truly independent and provided by the commission, or will Strikeforce provide them? Considering that I've never heard of an athletic commission having rules for a fourth judge, especially one not scoring on a ten point must system, this sounds like a Strikeforce only matter.

The tournament committee also seems... odd. Instead of just having seeded alternates, they'll be able to re-add an already eliminated fighter if they like?

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

A Belt is a just a Belt , whoever wins is the best SF HW period.

Stupid i agree , but its done because Overeem isnt a sure bet and myself and probably Scott included know his chin probably wont hold up fighting that many top guys especially 2 that have finished him.

Fedor being the SF champion is bad business for Scott since M1 seem to make all the rules.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Major Bummer and it's ridiculous that Reem can lose and still hold the title. This tournament is still a major step up for Strikeforce and lesson learned I guess.

I also don't know how a UFC HW fighter can occupy #1 spot without fighting the SF champ. (this goes both ways with this div; sorry, I'm a stickler for that detail/view)


The brackets still make sense for me, from the standpoint of getting the most exciting matchups overall. Kinda sucks they couldn't make it all 5 rounders/for the belt. But hey, Pride did it, so whatever. Either way, it's gonna be a fun ride!
