This is going to be a long post so bear with me... As For My Sources none of your damn business they're 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

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...

Good read.

This is probably the worst news of all. :lol1:

It's not that Strikeforce's commentary has gotten that much better, it's just that Goldberg and Rogan have become much worse.

And they were never that good to begin with, especially Goldberg. He makes boring fights even more boring somehow.

tru that. although the strikeforce commentary is not any better it is nice to get away from hearing the dumbass comments from rogan 24/7

You got the comedic commentary part right.

Except that it's unintentional comedy.
