What a joke a exhibition sparring match on your main card and it looks like it is the co-main event. Junkie makes it sound like relocation was just once but they had to change it over 4 times. This card is just sad at best and I have seen better cards at small time shows.

It's not a bad idea to have him do an exhibition against Mousasi considering Mousasi's recent destruction of a potentially top 10 opponent. It will familiarize him with the fans.

I do agree that it is not main card material, but Strikeforce has to do something. UFC is clearly a better product, but I'm all for other orgs doing what they can to try and compete.

I don't think Stirkeforce has anything to do with it.

I don't disagree but it shouldn't be on the main card or be the co-main event. Its not only disrespectful to the fighters that are really fighting but also comes off as almost desperate.

I meant M-1. Aren't they one and the same now anyways?
