Was Strikeforce ever better?
For years there has a been a small but very vocal minority of mma fans that made claims that the best fighters in the world were in Strikeforce. Shields was supposed to be one of those guys. I'll give him a pass for his last fight, because his Dad had just died. However he wasn't better than GSP, the UFC's best. By the end of the year we will have seen three current champions and one former champion in the UFC. None of these fighters are taking on the best in the UFC, but other Le, they are all fighting top contenders. Do you think these fights will have an effect on what people thought of Strikeforce? If the Strikeforce fighters win will it silence the haters? If they lose will the loyalists admit that they were wrong?
