Their best prelims up to now were Gurgel or Takaya fights.They better find a way to show Cormier/Monson and JZ/Wilcox, maybe streaming

Strikeforce has never once shown a prelim. Even when the main event ends a full hour before the end of the timeslot.Hopefully Zuffa's takeover will change this, but it may be some gayness of Showtime's that doesn't allow it.

and also he tapped to stikes recently against a russin who's 6'6 and 285 with all wins by ko or submission to strikes, and one loss, Griggs isnt that big, and lacks that kind of finish rate.

Ray sefo is a better striker than Griggs, he couldnt get a shot off before being taken down, i doubt griggs will with those hugely telographed punches.

Or Valentine is going to eat a punch and tap to strikes because he's a heartless fighter and Griggs has proven how tough he is.

I'd expect they would, Griggs hasn't looked that great at anything, to me his stand ups always looked below average, and he has no real wins of note. its my opinion that Overeem will take him down and submit him. And i also think some people are ruling monson out too quickly.

It's a heavyweight tourney. So they have to put them on the main card. All fights will get seen, because the HW fights should all end in the first round and they will need to fill in with the LW.
