Overeem has always been a "merchant", but Strikeforce are a joke as a company! How can you even consider "conflict of interests" as an option, when you can lose your Heavyweight Champion and one of your biggest names.. that's why their titles don't mean anything! I mean, yes you have to defend your interests as a company, but the argument here is childish.. you lose your top heavyweight, because he can't compete in the certain date, well change the damn date, why is it so important!?

Well, outside that lame dispute i'm so glad that Cormier will take his place, i have big hopes for him. Aldough it would be a very funny situation if he wins the tournament, and Cain wins his match against JDS.. what then, they are best friends?

Now, the SF "tournament" doesn't mean sh*t to me. No Fedor, no Overeem, no Werdum... Only have-been-fighters left + Silva, whom I never liked, and some TOP 30 guy... Terrible!

Showtime has the SF broadcast rights, and if SF runs a card on a date that doesn't work for Showtime, I'm pretty sure it doesn't get run and SF doesn't get their check. I haven't seen their contract or anything, but you remember when Coker had to reschedule the second half of the first round of the GP because of Barnett's licensing problems? It was originally scheduled for SF's April 9th show. But it was moved to June 18th. Coincidentally, June 18th was the next Saturday that didn't have a Showtime Boxing event or a UFC event. So it seems like Showtime has a lot of Pull on when SF can hold their events.

Wow... the UFC has fired Brittney and ruined the Strikeforce HW tournament. I don't even know what to say.

So instead of moving the fight back EVEN a month if they must, they are going to get rid of the only fighter that made the SF Tourny at all interesting?? They might as well cancel this tournament now and just get back to creating normal cards -_-
Or they can put Josh Barnett to fight Kharitov before Overeem has to fight Bigfoot. Im fairly certain Barnett isnt hurt and would be happy to go again.

I don't even know why they had the SF Champ in the GP anyway. It was flawed from the start.

Overeem has held the SF HW title hostage for to long because of outside ambitions and was now talking about boxing. No shit the UFC finally put there foot down. Dream is dying its about time the Reem started to realize that he doesn't hold all the power anymore.

Hopefully this will speed up the UFC absorbing SF. The sooner the better because there are some fighters absolutely languishing in SF that have many interesting fights waiting if they are in the UFC.

Reem is on roids, and afraid of Fedor.
