I had a great time watching Strikeforce tonight, but I don't understand what Zuffa is doing with this product.
One of the most memorable moments for me tonight was during the third round of the Marquardt-Woodley fight. I wondered to myself, "Why aren't these guys just fighting in the UFC?"
Seriously, with all the trouble the UFC was having with the UFC 149 card because of injuries, Dana and Zuffa should have just pulled the plug and featured Rockhold-Kennedy and Marquardt and Woodley on the main card.
There's still a lot of talent left in Strikeforce, a lot that was on display Saturday, but there aren't enough guys to make intriguing bouts for each show.
It was announced tonight that following the August Strikeforce card featuring Ronda Rousey, the September card will feature Daniel Cormier.
That fight alone could symbolize where Strikeforce goes from here. If the UFC will bring in one of their premier guys, Strikeforce could survive.
If Cormier is forced to face another irrelevant opponent, the card in September could be the final one for Strikeforce.
