The Chesapeake Bay Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma played host to the final Strikeforce event, which featured the welterweight title bout between Nate Marquardt and Tarec Saffiedine.
After seven years of existence, it was a sad way to see Strikeforce end. The fighters did their jobs and gave great efforts on a fight card that simply wasn't that appealing.
The main card was full of upper-echelon fighters facing medium to lower-tier opposition. Daniel Cormier and Josh Barnett, who are two of the best heavyweights in the world, fought two fighters making their Strikeforce debuts.
Unfortunately, Strikeforce's swan song was ravaged with injuries, and the promotion lacked the man power to cover up the wound.
Things certainly could've been worse. Strikeforce may have had to cancel the event entirely if they weren't blessed with great fighters willing to step up against world-class opposition on short notice.
Here are the top performances from Saturday night.
