When i saw this news on a MMA site i was like: "WHAT THE FCUK IS THIS SH*T?!"

Why would ZUFFA screw the tournament?!

Let's be honest: Overeem is SF's biggest star by far. Why would ZUFFA "sabotage" him like this?! It makes no sense...

Anf then --->

Exactly.

ZUFFA may act like they're some "slave masters" or something like this - do this or get the *fcuk out* - but in this case they've inherited a contract signed by SF before they took over.

A contract is a contract - it could hurt them like hell if they were to not respect that contract - financially especially.

And Overeem is right also. If he has an injury and feels he needs more time to heal, he should get the needed time.
WHy risk starting a camp with an injury?! The risk of aggravating the injury is very high.

And the end result would be: less time to find a replacement (for Silva in this case).


But...this whole situation is still bullshit!

This could be a good thing. Who was left in the tourney that you could honestly say you were excited to see Overeem face?

Hopefully this will pave the way for an Overeem vs Fedor bout, or even better and Overeem vs Cain/JDS?

Hell, I'd even go as far to say I'd love to see him fight Carwin.

Why would they put on an extra card JUST to accomodate Overeem? They wouldn't put a new card on just for a UFC fighter so why would they do it for a Strikeforce fighter.

Sounds like you are one of those 'Zuffa Haters' ive been hearing so much about.

Exactly. SF can barelly manage to put on cards atm.

They have no real contenders for their champions and they're just recycling their fighters and fights.

Example:

- their WW division is almost dead
- they have no contender for Jacare - Rockhold is getting a shot after a 17 month absence and 3 fights in the SF challengers series
- they have no real contender for Henderson

In this case i really don't balme ZUFFA.

They have that contract and they have to respect the terms of the contract.

PS: could this be Showtime's response to the rumours ZUFFA is considering signing a deal with HBO?!?!?!

Or just a coincidence?!

UFC - HBO?!

YES PLS!
Tune up fight = vs Frank Mir.

He talked some smack in the past about Overeem, so this fight would have a story to go allong.

did the toe hurt after u were able to walk around with regular shoes. Its take generally three weeks for it to heel, for a fighter that effects training a lot.
