Fedor is too quick for Silva.

The AA fight is more interesting. I think AA will win... but you never know with his glass jaw.

And Kharatinov is a good boxer, I think he was even a olympic alternate, conditioning is the only issue I think.

The HW belt is not on the line, but I think there will be a GP belt. The winner faces Overeem unless Overeem wins. I think the HW belt is on the line if Overeem makes the finals.

Here:

Quote:
Today, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker clarified many of the questions that needed to be addressed.

First up, Alistair Overeem's title will not be on the line in the tournament. And while there were some suggestions that every fight in the tournament would be contested as five-round affairs, instead, that will only happen in the grand prix finals, when a newly created Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix title will be on the line.

"All quarterfinal and semifinal matches will be scheduled for three, five-minute rounds," Coker said. "The tournament final will be five, five-minute rounds for the Strikeforce world grand prix championship."

The grand prix champion would then get first crack at Overeem. Of course, if the Dutchman cleans house in the eight-man bracket, he's imply add another belt to his already impressive trophy case.

Strikeforce's heavyweight grand prix, featuring such luminaries as Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, former UFC champions Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett, PRIDE great Fedor Emelianenko and others, kicks off on Feb. 12 at "Strikeforce and M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Silva," which takes place at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J.

With the heavyweight grand prix set up as an eight-man, multi-night, single-elimination tournament, draws could prove problematic along the way. In order to address that, Coker said a fourth judge will be on hand in each fight to determine which fighter will advance from the tie (similar to the "must win" format used by World Victory Road's Sengoku promotion).

"If any fight results in a draw, an independent fourth judge will determine who advances or who wins based on the fighter's overall performance in the fight," Coker said. "We will have a fourth judge on hand scoring the fight independently of the three that we normally have."

fedor indeed has his weaknesses, but that post was about the most naive way i've ever heard someone sum them up.

sounds like you've watched half-a-dozen MMA fights, tops...

having said that, i do worry about fedor getting past overeem. i mean, the dutchman has turned into an absolute badass, the last couple of years...

Im really excited for this event. Im rooting for fedor ofcourse.. even though IMO he has a weak nickname. "The last emperor" really? Well i admit i dont know the background/reason why he is called that way. Does it have something to do with him being from russia or something? Anyway if fedor wins the tournament that could sum up his career. He will definitely go up in the p2p ranking list, maybe enter the top 3 or 4. He could retire afterward and be remembered as the best HW for a long time.

Fedor was the last Pride FC, the best MMA company in the world back then, Heavyweight champion.
