Strikeforce, in my mind, is the one promotion that's under the radar but is making money. In fact Gary Shaw has said that he would model EliteXC after Strikeforce(mind you that didn't work out for Shaw) but Strikeforce might end up becoming a major MMA player. Now there gonna be on The Score in Canada, and that's just gonna help them.
Shaw modelled EXC after WWE which is why the promotion sucks. I fhe had modelled EXC after Strikeforce the org might be better.
Sherdog is going to stream the Strikeforce show at the Playboy Mansion.
Strikeforce is a great show. They have brilliant business men running it and it shows. They put on great fights, have solid fighters and also allow up and comers to get a shot in a professional show.
Even Dana said Strikeforce is doing things right. That's the first time I'd ever heard him compliment another organization like that.
I think they are doing a good job by starting with a strong regional affiliation and building credibility and depth before trying to swim in the deep end of the pool.
