shitfarce.  I dont think showtime will cancel it though unless Nate Marquart and Cormier are also off.  at least one of those guys needs a paycheck.

Shocking. The SF champs don't event want to waste their time fighting on this last event. Pretty obvious what they're doing.

I don't question whether a fighter is really injured or not.  The question is is it really that bad to not fight? Under other circumstances, would they still carry on?  No doubt it's smart to heall up, but given that SF will go under after this, I can't see where these guy are that stoked to fight on that card when the UFC is in the waiting for most of them.

Would have been awesome if they had done a mega New Years crossover card with lots of UFC vs. Strikeforce fights.

I can't say that I blame them.

They fight on the SF show and get injured, they're maybe out 6 months. They pull out now and can maybe fight in the UFC in February/March.

The extra money from sponsors alone would probably make it worth it.

I don't blame them either. Just crazy how their last two events get cancelled because of injuries and then it's supposed to be the epic Night of Champions send off, and two of the champs have already pulled out. It's a sad way to see Strikeforce go out and it tells you how meaningless these belts are to these fighters. I can't wait till this shit is over with. Phone Post

Sucks but its still not a terrible card.

Nate/Tarec WW title
DC/ some guy
Mousasi/Kyle
Couture/Noons

Maybe put Jacare on the card, that wouldnt be a bad SF card. Not the huge card they were hoping to put on.

Hey, don't shit on Strikeforce, the list of great fights they gave us is long.

Nick Diaz - Paul Daley
Melvin Manhoef - Robbie Lawler
Nate Marquardt - Tyron Woodley
Ronda's fights...


And the list goes on. Haha, my MMA memory is down the drain these days, but man.. there were some good times!
