MMALOGIC -

The Varsity Jackets.

LOL.


I went to the opening round with those jackets.


My first and only time seeing Fedor live. Sucked to see him lose like that.


StrikeForce was the reason I got Showtime years ago. Always looked forward to their cards.


I will be cancelling Showtime after this weekend.


A tear will run down my face when I make that phone call. Phone Post

I liked the part of the intro where nick diaz seems to spin like a toupee with his arms raised like a ballerina

Don't forget ROBBIE LAWLER and SCOTT SMITH and the commentating of PAT MILETICH.

Plus the SHOWTIME event production value and quality of the broadcast.

caposa - 

When I think of Strikeforce I think of:

-Gilbert Melendez making a name for himself, losing the title, and then finally getting his revenge in one of the best fights of 2009

-Cung Le's path of destruction and then proving the doubters wrong against Frank Shamrock

-As previously mentioned, Frank Shamrock carrying the promotion on his back at times. Acting as a commentator, co-creator, and most importantly, fighter.

-When they acquired Elite XC's assets and became the most viable #2 promotion in MMA we had seen in a long time.

-Nick Diaz continuing his run and reasserting himself as one of the most exciting fighters in MMA

-The Brawl in Nashville

-Signing Fedor. Fedor/Rogers on CBS. The Werdum fight. Bigfoot. Hendo. Amazing fights

-The beginning of the Heavyweight GP and the buzz surrounding it. I attended the opening round in NJ in person and it was insane.

-The emergence of Ronda Rousey

-So many great fights and finishes

 

Gonna be a sad day, but the fighters deserve this move to the UFC. SF has always delivered and I'm expecting nothing different come Saturday night.


all great mma moments

Diaz vs , Shamrock, Noons and Daley
Gil vs Josh fights
Fedor's fights
HW GP and Cormier's rise to the top

StrikeForce is and soon was definitely one of the best promotions ever in the business.

When I think of strikeforce The first thing that comes into my mind is Tito's stuttering and very awkward announcing followed by Kimbo slice getting smashed by the Seth. Phone Post

Wasn't that EliteXC? Though, I think they were finally purchased by Strikeforce. Phone Post

these lists in the thread make me realise strikeforce has had more 'memorable moments' / bouts than any other org in the past few years for me at least.

tatooedMillionaire - one of my favorite moments

On the undercard of the Overeem/Werdum card Conor Heun fought Magno Almeida and had his arm basically snapped in a deeeeeeep armbar and fought back to win. Was simply unbelievable. Not many people have seen the fight but my god if you enjoy grappling it's a priceless gem.
I remember this. Great fight. Phone Post
