Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

[VIDEO] What Will Hopefully Be the Final Strikeforce Heavyweight Tournament Preview

(From the moment Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier awoke cuffed to drain pipes on opposite ends of a dirty bathroom, they knew that a showdown was inevitable.) 

Oh, Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, how you’ve managed to elude us. Like that of Tim Sylvia’s UFC campaign, there were times, more often than not, that we laughed at the idea of you ever being taken seriously. Let’s just say that if your story were to be committed to paper, it would undoubtedly surpass that of Homer’s Illiad & Odyssey combined, and although it turns out we were correct to chuckle at “The Maine-iac’s” unfortunate plight, it seems that you are finally going to follow through on what you promised us so long ago. Yes, after teasing us with an original finale date of March 3rd (an event that was quickly changed to support the Tate vs. Rousey fight), you managed to make us wait yet another two and a half months before setting a final date of May 19th. Nearly one year after you began.

But we’re not here to complain, we’re here to celebrate your conclusion. Luckily, Hanuman Productions shares our somewhat-subdued-but-still-present excitement, and have created a sweet trailer to try and get us fully amped for Josh Barnett‘s clash with Daniel Cormier once again. Check it out below, and let us know if it did its job.

So there you have it, the final trailer for the the final relevant heavyweight fight of Strikeforce’s career. We’ve probably asked you this before, but it’s been so long that we’ve definitely forgotten: who do you got for this one?

If Elite XC was running this shit, that match would be on the undercard. With Kimbo in the main even against Emanuel Yarbrough.

Barnett by Toe Hold, or some other goofy leg/foot/heel sub

Originally this tournament was set up to have Fedor take on Overeem in the finals. How the mighty have fallen, right?

Cormier All Day.

I'll take the brown fat middleweight over baloney-tits mcblondebeard in a stunning upset.
