I'm cool with it, but let him fight Werdum first. That's all I wanna see. The rest of the tournament isn't a huge deal.

Now a new set of rumors has been posted:

This is going to be a long post so bear with me... To all the haters keep hating I sill love you guys... As For My Sources none of your damn business there high up in vegas wink...

As Zuffa Aquired strikforce they have stated business as usual which has not been the case... Zuffa has terminated mainly the whole strikeforce staff except 2.... Rich chou was well respected within the company by staff and fighters and will be sadly missed as he was being groomed for taking over strikeforce for scott coker... Scott Coker has not been happy about his staff getting fired and very upset about chou getting replaced... Scott did not like his demotion but being scott as he is he took it in stride and just like a good pr man he pretends its all good... Many within say Scott will be gone by december to presue other endovours and scott is just there too smooth over the transistion...

Zuffa and Showtime once bitter enemies are now best friends... Zuffa has made inroads with showtime about making changes about the production... Gus Johnson And Mauro Ranallo are on the chopping block... Frank Shamrock is on the bubble and Pat Millitich and Stephan Quadros will be kept on for the challengers cards... Goldie And Rogan Are expected to take over duties in december....

There have been also talks of the tournament finals being Strikeforce first ppv this december and with ZUFFa like to DO 6 shows per year..

There have been strikeforce tourny issues things have not went off without a hitch.. Josh Barnett is not guaranteed but most within think with the zuffa brass at helm they can get it done and incase andrei arvlovsky will be on stand by...

Allistar Overeem has had A rocky relationship with the coker regeime... Allistar was not happy with coker dicking him around with the fedor fight that was promised to him... Also Not happy with the long layoff between the rogers fight and some contractual matters... Coker extended an olive branch in obtaining Valentjn overeem to smooth t

Now the next part is rumor there have been rumblings and info changing daily on this... My sources are tight lipped... But the overeem vs werdum fight is not guaranteed... Ive asked about injury but zuffa has been coy with info being leaked...

Ive been told dont be surprised if overeem pulls out of the tournament and relinquishes the championship... Overeem could possibly be crossing over to the ufc... This would make the Tournament finals for the championship and makes a debut ppv more interesting... This as i said is rumor i know there have been talks and the fight is not cancelled and is still official but was told dont be surprised... This can change daily so I will try too keep updated with more info as I find out more but its not a guaranteed more to come...


Mixedmartialarts.com WERE running this story on their site. How much of it is true i don't know. Highly speculative of course. Make of it what you will.
Now this is the reason Im losing interest in the whole MMA scene. Hope Zuffa knows what there are doing? Cause there will be repercussions, and all of them might not be good. MMA is worst then boxing as far as management, and the money go.

What I really wanna see is K-1 Style rules with 4oz gloves. Now that would be action.

If Zuffa is going to **** with Strikeforce this much then please sign all the fighters to UFC contracts and make everyone fight everyone. This blending of the brands if lame shit. God damn Goldie on Strikeforce **** off. SF was a solid alternative but Zuffa can't have than can they god damnit

OVEREEM in UFC is the end of the UFC heavyweight divisions' fighters careers only velasquez and carwin are the only ones to be able to beat "THE REEM"

He make's a valid point. For a fact MMA is less exciting that it once was in yesteryears. This isn't based on revisionist sentimentalism. It's what MANY fans are reporting.

That's right none. Pretty much like most of your posts.

sounds like your hung up on Overeem and the energy of your hang up tried to bully beekeeper cuss you didnt like the image in your mind of Overeem getting beat and possibly beat bad in the tournement

his point is valad as in all sports we all know that often things dont go accounding to the test of time

now dont try to dispute my point its impossible just take it on the chin and admit that you got overexited and had a drama in your head when beekeeper reminded you that your getting a little ahead of yourself

personally i love Overeem as a fighter and hope he runs the table and goes to the UFC or just goes to the UFC

thinking that is possible is one thing having a hissy fit because ONE dares suggest it may not happen is another

from this point forwards ESB will be aware that runtings OFFICIALLY lost this "SPECIFIC" POST DEBATE with tiny beekeeper as he has clearly stated that beekeeper had no point when beekeepers point was that TIME will tell witch based on history has already made its point. ESB will understand that runtings its a great poster and he simply cant control himself sometimes and goes off on others because he puts so much good work into a post that he is OVER-SENSITIVE to any potential POINT that runtlings hadnt FULLY considered previously,,,we all do it theres nothing to feel bad or good about for any of us including runtlings,,,,were human and we REACT within,,from this point forwards ESB will be aware that runtlings brings fantastic posts to this forum and occasionally just goes off on others and tries to bully them because he is over sensitive hoping to use his true knowledge of mma as a power hoping to force others to drop their POINTs even if they EXIST just because they do not make runtlings feel COMFY within,,,,,,,, we will all remember the day when beekeeper totally destroyed runtlings in his own thread

well done beekeeper,,,i dont read you and am aware that you could be a really crappy poster overall,,,however you did well here today,,font with belief in yourself on this forum from this day forward

and guess what runtlings ? the beauty is you have me on ignore so youll never know about this and will go right on posting not aware why beekeeper has that extra SNAP in his replies from hence forthward

by the way great first post and thanks for all the latest potential future time pathways are opening up

exciting has always been RELATIVE to the MIND runtlings,,,you already know this so dont be a douche just man up ,,,,, its how WE percieve it that makes it EXCITING and the truth that back in the PRIDE etc days we percieved it as soooo EXCITING as before the media had never shown what REALLY happens when two dudes go at it in a all out brawl using martial art etc tactics,,,,,it was incredable,,,to a young fan what they are watching now is incredable,,its the HYPE in them and thats why the sport has GROWN so much douche bag,,,,, now seriously stop with the bullying or im going to have to start posting more in your threads and we all know what happened last time i did that,,,stop thinking from your OWN perception and PRETENDING that everyONE that doesnt think from that perception is WRONG,,,your ignoring so many details that your making PERCEPTIONs that things that are grey are only black or white,,,,,your aware of why you do that ??? its because it makes for less multytasking in your mind,,,,,,,,,,,,,thats not a good enough reason to be a douche,,,,ok walk it off
