Strikeforce Saturday most lopsided major event ever?


After purging their roster and sending many top talents over to the UFC, Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine is perhaps the most lopsided card in MMA history. Taking a look at the betting odds, we can see just how predictable this card is in the eyes of the oddsmakers.

Some of the more one-sided fights include:
Nate Marquardt (-300) over Tarec Saffiedine (+230)
Roger Gracie (-325) over Anthony Smith (+250)
Ronaldo Souza (-400) over Ed Herman (+300)
Tim Kennedy (-450) over Trevor Smith (+325)
Pat Healy (-500) over Kurt Holobaugh (+350)
Gegard Mousasi (-500) over Mike Kyle (+350)
Josh Barnett (-1600) over Nandor Guelmino (+800)
Daniel Cormier (-2000) over Dion Staring (+900)

At the final card in Strikeforce history, fans of the promotion deserve more than this lopsided night of predictable outcomes. However, at least we can look forward to a night of likely stoppage wins to put an exclamation point at the end of Strikeforce's final chapter.

Lopsided based on predictions, then probably yes.But a true "lopsided" designation can only be made after the fights. Can't wait to see these guys go at it. I feel there will be at least a couple surprises.

Like someone mentioned Strikeforce has always been like that. I went to the card in St. Louis where Lawlor Ko'd Lindland, Daley Ko'd Smith, Henderson Ko'd Babalu, and a bunch of other ko's and it was a brutal night and that might have been the most lopsided card ever. The main card was over in like 25 minutes! Lol

Wrong! Strikeforce was doing quite well but Coker's partners decided they didnt want to be in the MMA game anymore.
