I was looking over the card this weekend, and am actually looking forward to it. As the fights look pretty good and I am a big DC fan. But I couldnt help but wonder if Strikeforce would still be around had the fight between Miller and the Diaz bro's not have happened after the Shields Hendo fight. It's well known that after that happened CBS pulled the plug on putting show's on there network. An I cant help but think that maybe things would have gone differently if that had never happened and Strikeforce would still have been able to use network tv to build there brand. I mean think about how good the ratings would have been for there heavyweight tourney had it been on CBS. I mean when Fedor fought Rogers on CBS I believe he brought in over 5 million viewers to see that fight. Imagen what the tourney would have done. They spent all that money on Fedors name, but after they could no longer put shows on CBS they cut alot of viewers out of being able to see him fight, since not everyone has showtime. So what you say UG, do you think Strikeforce would still be around and never been purchased by ZUFFA had they not lost there deal with CBS?
