Strikeforce: Heavyweight Grand Prix Final – Barnett vs Cormier

On 19th May Strikeforce returns to its hometown of San Jose, California to bring us the final instalment of the acclaimed Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament.

On 12th February 2011 Strikeforce launched the Heavyweight Grand Prix, bringing together eight of the World’s best Heavyweight fighters to compete in a tournament format. Pitting such heavyweight luminaries as Fedor Emilianenko, Alistair Overeem, Fabricio Werdum, Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski against each other, the winner would be able to claim the crown of best Heavyweight on the Planet.

Long time Heavyweight number 1, Fedor Emilianenko, was the early favourite for the crown despite coming in off a shock loss to Fabricio Werdum. However Fedor’s dominance would be shattered as he was brutally picked apart by Antonio ‘Big Foot’ Silva in a 2nd round defeat which left many wondering if Fedor would fight again.

‘Big Foot’ Silva would assume the favourites mantle as Alistair Overeem was forced to withdraw from the tournament following a contract dispute with Strikeforce over his required recovery time following an injury in his victory over Werdum.

Daniel Cormier was then drafted in as a reserve to replace Overeem and instantly turned the tournament on its head by defeating Silva in the tournament semi finals setting up a mouth watering final with the controversial veteran Josh Barnett.

Barnett’s route to the final came following victories over Brett Rogers and Sergei Kharitonov, and with his tournament pedigree will now be many people’s favourite to lift the trophy. Daniel Cormier, though, will be looking to cause another major upset and establish himself as one of the world’s elite Heavyweight fighters.

To celebrate the conclusion of this acclaimed tournament, Primetime will be bringing you 6 hours of MMA action by broadcasting the full preliminary bouts as well as the full main card from 1am on 19th May. This includes Gilbert Melendez defending his Lightweight title in a rubber match with Josh Thompson as well as Rafael Cavalcante vs Mike Kyle.

So join us on 19th May from 1am for an exciting night of MMA action to see just who is the best Heavyweight in the World!

Strikeforce:Barnett vs Cormier will be broadcast live at 1am on Saturday 19th May, and will be repeated for the following 6 days. Watch on Ch480 on Sky and online at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] – only £9.95!

Hi Flea, yes if you are registered and have your phoneline plugged in just order through the box office menu. If you don't have a phoneline in your sky box call us or visit the website and we'll send a direct signal(already registered then there's no registration fee to pay)

Sound as a pound. Well worth a tenner this.

You guys should look into Bellator. Maybe with a £15.95 season pass or summat?
