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

Are u saying that they're purposefully injuring themselves so they can go straight into the UFC?

The need to be diagnosed by a zuffa doctor to claim insurance, so they are certainly not faking it Phone Post

Bry Bry - ^^U mean the Robbie that was getting destroyed up until he landed that somewhat lucky punch?

The one that walked out with a pocket full of cash and Melvin's girlfriend while Melvin slept facedown on the mat?

Yeah, that one.

no i dont think he's saying that... but injuries that would not normally cause a fighter to pull out seems like what's happening here.

Gilbert agrees to fight and then the rumor of it being the last SF event surfaces, rousy going to the UFC and then all of a sudden he finds a doctor to say he's not ready yet.  You know what it takes for a doctor to say that?  "my shoulder doesnt feel good".

Luke is out with a wrist injury...  have you ever heard of a fighter pulling out because of a wrist injury?  You know what it takes for a doctor to state you have an injured wrist?  "My wrist doesnt feel good".

You realize all of these "injuries" can be diagnosed according to the fighter's testimony to the doctor? A person has to be diagnosed for whiplash before they can get disability, yet millions of people fake it. They bend your wrist, you say "ouch!" a lot, and you're declared to be injured. It's not always something that shows up on an x-ray.

It will be sweet when Melendez and Rockhold get beaten in the UFC and we can quit hearing of their lofty rankings based upon being a Strikeforce champ.

Alvarez will stomp Melendez.

Which is likely why they'll not make that bout.

They'll soft touch Gil and feed Eddie to the wolves.

Luke is good looking so they will soft touch him at first too in order to gauge potential sales from him in the future v Phone Post

Yeah... Anderson wasn't rejecting Weidman and calling out Luke because Luke was the bigger risk.

not surprized at all that people are dropping off this StrikeForce card.

Why risk a fight here when you can pull out and fight 2 months laters in the UFC.

Yup. Think about it if you are Rockhold, you go and lose to Larkin, a relative unknown, what happens to your UFC career?

He goes in as the SF MW champ he is gonna fight someone like Belcher/Okami, Stann, Lombard/Palhares, he is gonna get a top fighter right away. If he loses to Larkin he is gonna be fighting someone like Costa or Nick Ring or Leben if he is lucky.

Same with Gilbert. Coming in as the SF champ gives them more leverage negotiating a new contract with the UFC and it gets them big fights vs contenders right away. A loss on the last SF card would be a huge blow to them right before they finally get what they have been hoping for, big fights in the UFC.
