Heavyweight Tournament Winner Will be Crowned Champion?

If Alistair gets eliminated by Antonia Silva and doesn't get a chance to fight in the final, will the the tournament winner have to fight Alistair to get the belt?

Lets say Antonio defeats Alistair and Sergei defeats Josh Barnett. Will the winner of Antonio/Sergei be crowned Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion.

If Antonio wins, crowning him is reasonable because he defeated Alistair already. But if Sergei wins, he becomes Grand Prix Champion, but will Sergei to have face Alistair in order to be Heavy Weight Champion?

No, they would have to fight Overeem for it. He was originally going to defend the title in all of his tournament matched but the commissions wouldn't let them have 5 round fights for some reason.

The belt is not on the line during the grand prix, so regardless of who wins they will not get the belt.

Whoever wins is going to get and instant shot at the title anyway. I still can't see anyone giving Overeem any problems. He is the biggest, most athletic, best striker, most well rounded, most experienced fighter of all of them.

First off if Bigfoot doesn't beat Overeem, Barnett will. So why would he have to fight a rematch for the title. It's just more bad management by strikeforce. I bet you anything if it's Overeem vs Barnett in the final, it becomes a title fight.

Well its not the heavy weight division title its the Grand Prix title and belt and IMO it would hold more validity at this point than reems title, at least to me.

Whoever wins will get a shot at the UFC title and Strikeforce will completely disintegrate. Hey, can't I dream?

Barnett won't beat Overeem! Sergei will beat him after he stomps Barnett!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

For me, the ones who really deserve to be in the final are:

Bigfoot and Barnett

They both dominated their opponents in a very great performance. Don't mention sergey, because he won over an already loosing guy!

I think that Big Foot will win the entire tournament, Alista showed he has nothing in comparable to Bigfoot, and he has big openings, a great striker will use them to bring him down. And please don't forget that he lost 6 times by the form of KO !!!

Sergei is going to get taken down and tapped out with ease. When sergei fights a good grappler he loses.
