That defeats the purpose of the tournament, also slap in the face to the Del Rosario, Griggs, and Overeem.
He won't even be medically cleared by then either probably.
But you notice how Arlovski doesn't get that option? It's because Strikeforce is doing the same shit EliteXC did, they did it with Henderson who lost, they did it with Gina who lost, now they've done it with Fedor who lost.
Their just an awful company, all around.
Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.
