The difference with SF and Affliction and Bodog is that they don't base their entire promotion on Fedor... @TraMai.

They were on a successful streak before they ever signed him.

Their other stars will help the org continue to pull in fans...

I see Bellator folding eons before Strikeforce ever does.

Man, this is why I hope Fedor hangs it up for real and for good and just tells Strikeforce & M-1 to go hang. They're running a tournament, shit happens and you gotta deal with it and move on so let's just forget Fedor & Arlovski and move on with the game.

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.

It didn't really say Fedor would take the placement, Fedor said he is moving on and all this, it is the promotor saying that he could possibly be the replacement if Fedor wishes.

Fedor is not a man who has a lot of pride, as in, he doesn't need to get in there and "show us" and show others that he can still compete and still get in there and blah blah like Liddell, Shamrock, etc. He's extremely humble and last night he said he feels it is time to move on, so I highly doubt he would even take it if offered.

This would be so LOL if it happens...

And if it can be arranged in a manner that guarantees he doesn't end up facing the Reem, you know it's gonna happen.

Gawdamn SF, you start doing some nice things, and then regress with sh*t like this. Sad. Legitimacy FAIL.

LOL, Strikeforce is such a freaking joke of an organization. This defeats the whole reason for the tournament...

I almost guarantee you Barnett is now not going to be able to compete and they will want Fedor to take his place...

Hopefully Fedor says F U strikeforce and actually does retire.

This organization is so pathetic, too bad they actually have half a dozen decent fighters.

I agree but you aren't considering M-1's influence over him.

I can already see it...

Fedor vs Chad Griggs in the GP Final.


(at least Fedor would have a 50/50 shot in that one)

I think everyone is going over board , Fedor hasnt said a thing as far as he is concerned he is retired and being a replacement is a good idea if he wants to continue i have doubts though he wont be in the front of the queue if a fighter drops out.

Guys like

Lashley
Griggs
Del Ressario

im led to believe were the original guys lined up as back up so i see nothing changing unless these guys are unavailable then it makes sense if Fedor wants to fight which is the key if he wants to continue to come as the last resort replacement so quit the hating he lost and he is retired.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back
