Why Strikeforce's Heavyweight Division May be the Deepest

With Strikeforce's heavyweight tournament set to kick off in just 9 days, and the fact that current UFC heavyweight Champ, Cain Velasquez, is sidelined until the end of this year, Strikeforce's heavyweight division is a credible challenge to the UFC's. The Strikeforce Heavyweight roster, unlike much of the rest of Strikeforce's divisions, actually contains some big (no pun intended) names, including: Fedor Emelianenko, Alistar Overeem, Fabricio Werdum, Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva, Brett Rogers, and Andrei Arlovski.

The match schedule includes:
Feb 12: Fedor vs. Silva
Arlovski vs. Kharitonov

April, 2011: Overeem vs. Werdum
Barnett vs. Rogers

Whoever emerges champ after the dust settles will have a good case for being considered the best p4p heavyweight in the world. Of course Cain Velasquez can restake his claim to that title after a successful title defense when he recovers. For now, we'll have to wait and see.

  22. MMA should be an olympic sport. I mean, if Tae Kwon Do and Judo can qualify, why not MMA?
