First of all I don't think anyone reveres any of the MWs in Strikeforce. Secondly more deserving and better fighters would be: Jacare, Kennedy, Miller, and Lawler. I think it's fair to say that everyone can clearly see that these fighters have done more significant things in their careers.

Just say u are not a fan of SF and keep it moving.The mere fact that SF is held in cung lee's san jose made him the face of the org at one point..

What have lawler or miller done that has earned them the right to face anderson?

"I think these fighters have done more significant things in their careers" except never becoming middle weight champion which cung has or didnt u know that..

He doesnt fight at MW anymore.But if he were to ever go to ufc that would be his best chance at success cuz hed get eaten up by l&ps in griffin/bader/rashad/phil davis and destroyed by jackson/jones

As far as spotting any changes, its already been stated numerous times that showtime handle the production not sf/coker or the entertainment company that was the majority share holder in the organisation.The only glaring difference was the stock footage of jardine/houston which was obviously from the ufc library.Other than that it was like any other strikeforce show
You're very easy to dislike, has anyone ever told you that? Is it really so necessary to be such a standoffish wanker without even being provoked? The deal with Showtime doesn't expire for two years, so I would think Zuffa absolutely wants SF to enjoy a ratings increase and boost in profits between now and then. A whole two years can mean a whole lot of dough, regardless of the end intentions. And while I'd like to see SF dissolved into the UFC, if it becomes a financially successful organization, Zuffa might just pull a WEC and give it five more years as opposed to two. The fact is, no one knows what is going to happen. Nice to see yet another fortune teller with a crystal ball, though

And while Showtime handles production, we've also heard Dana say NUMEROUS TIMES that he and Lorenzo were going to start dipping their hands into the honey pot in that regard. So the question was more than valid. Dana said again last night before the show that set and production changes were still on the way. Watch a few interviews, do a little reading, and come in with some actual knowledge next time. I've nothing more to say to someone who talks out of his arse as much as you do.

I really loved it when Gus said he wanted to see Cung Le vs. Anderson. His smile after he said that was like the one from a little kid, absolutely fantastic.

I would prefer to see this matchup over any other in the MMA Middleweight world right now too, btw.

Do you know what time this will be on in Sydney? I'm hoping to find a site to stream it from.

EDIT: SHIT ITS HAPPENED! HAVE TO FIND IT NOW
I agree Schiavello is the man for the job.

The truth is the fights going on in SF have been quality for a very long time just a shame so many need to see the fights surrounded by ribbons and bells to applicate it.

The 2 best events in terms of fight quality alone last year where both SF, Heavy Artillery and Feijao vs King Mo, they may have not got the credit of some of the UFC events last year but does not chance the quality of what I really want to see.

I'd love a Mousasi-Silva fight to be honest. Mousasi could easily drop down IMO and Mousasi is an awesome striker.
