    Great interviews. Love his take on the UFC..

    I also say Hieron beats Shields.

    Overeem beats everyone in the world.

    Do you know Dana White and the Fertittas personally?
    I've met them, yes. Dana and I have had conversations on the phone a couple times. They've always been nice to me.



    lol, not anymore

    Who knows. Dana has had nice things to say about him in the past and Dana has always been big on "fuck me? fuck you"..

    If Scott keeps Dana's name out his mouth - maybe they co-exist peacefully.

    MMA needs a 2nd tier organization.

    I think the UFC recognizes that and hopefully they leave strikeforce alone.

    buying EXC and their fighters/contracts/feeder orgs makes them a 1st tier organization. They also finally have some MMA/business intellgence behind them.

    They are a real threat.

    They don't have to put on ONE card and I already know that in my personal opinion - they're on the same level as the UFC.

    They are top tier to you an avid fan, but they to the casual fan they will be 2nd place to the UFC.

    I mentioned to a "MMA fan" friend of mine and he didn't even know about the deal and when I explained the whole thing he first question was.
    "Does that mean they have Kimbo?"

    I don't think they should try to be a threat. They should both be able to coexist and both be able to make money.

    The UFC won't carry a huge roster, so unless we want a ton of out of work fighters there needs to be another legit place for them to fight.

    I used to hate on the guy too, but look at his recent fights.

    He is a bad man.

    No worries. I'd be scared if I were you (and by you, I mean Fedor) too.

    strike force is looking good, seems like they have a good conservative business plan. One of the main problems Elite XC had was promoting their events and the guys at strike force know how to do that. They will be able to do more with the network deals then elite xc ever could. Hopefully mauro jumps on board.

    I think that strike force will do god with the whole cbs deal. The IFL did good for awhile just because it was on basic cable and because its events were free. I think strikeforce will get the same result.

    Anyone think this tanks Aflliction? I don't see them doing very many more if they don't create their own alliance. I know they want WAMMA to be like a world belt. I want them to do well, but the more I read about Gary Millen, the more I want failboat.

    as long as affliction can put out the barnet fedor fight then im good other then that I dont see them offering any fights which will peak my interest. They already did fedor vs big time arlovski vs fedor so the only thing left for them is the barnett fedor main event. After that they are fucked

    Did you miss the part where we won the Strike Force HW title like 5 months ago?
