I think we're all missing the main point here. Do you think people who don't know who Fedor is really give a **** who is fighting for the Strikeforce title? If you're such a casual fan that you don't know who the best fighter in the world is than you either A.) aren't watching Strikeforce, or B.) have such little knowledge of MMA that you'll be willing to swallow whatever the announcers tell you during the event.
It's an invented problem. Real fans know that putting a belt on somebody and having them fight Fedor doesn't make them legitmate top flight competition. He didn't secure his place as the best by coming to the UFC and beating the best so what difference does it make what B level fighter he fights first in Strikeforce? You either don't know enough to care or you know enough to not care. Either way, say it with me now, Who cares?
