    Ok folks, this is the Best Heavyweight MMA Competition on the planet. You have 8 very talented HW going at it. Take a glace at the brackets:

    I can see Josh "The Baby Face Assassin Barnett" getting the Victory. I won't hate on Fabricio Werdum, who IMO is the baddest HW at the moment. Then we have Mr. Fedor & Mr. Overeem. PitBull Arloski, Kharitonov, & Brett Rodgers are no jokes either. The last question that needs to be answered, can BigHead Silva show that he is for reals??? Can't wait. First round matches begin on February 12th, 2011 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. If you are still not excited, take a peep at the video:

    I would love to see Fedor in the Final, but truth be told, he has a hard task ahead of him getting past Bigfoot and then more than likely Ubereem. If he can do so, I don't see how you can't think of him as the number one Heavy Weight.

    If you guys watched the K-1 Grand Prix - and you all did, right? :D - you know that Overeem has a frightening standup game. If he's got good jiu-jitsu to go along with it, he'll be tough as hell to beat.

    Ha, now Fedor is questioning Alistair's weight gain

    I know that Alistair 's the hot item now, but Werdum has beaten both Alistair & Fedor (I am using Alistair's first name on purpose cause his brother might enter the competition). The First Round is this weekend :D Can't wait!!!

    Fedor needs to question his next life move. IMHO, he first needs to cut the marionette strings from his mafia bozos at M1.

    Arlovski needs to join him. He can't take a punch anymore, but to be fair that punch when he was on his back was devastating:

    Strikeforce has a decent HW division to say the least.
    Everybody is hoping for Overeem - Fedor.
    But I say let the best man win.
    Don't know what Overeem has taken for dinner, but he is a bull on two legs, Don't know who will stop him in this size.

    I am assuming that you are thinking of Alistair. Valentijn Overeem won his match on Sat & qualified as a reserve for the HW GP. Alistair has already lost to Fabricio Werdum & Sergei Kharitonov, so it's not like he is unbeatable. As long as the fight is on the feet, Alistair has an awesome chance to put fools away. Now if it goes to the ground, that is a big if. I will pick either of the two fighters that I mentioned. Hell, Bigfoot Silva is a BJJ Black belt & you saw what he did to Fedor last Sat??? Here a lil' taste:

    It appears that the next set of bouts for this round will be @ Dallas on June 18. I wonder why bouts are so distanced from each other :confused: Should have done like Pride FC. Have all fights in one event. I guess Strikeforce is lost after Fedor got beat by Bigfoot Silva.
