The card is staying, but I'm not sure if we're doing another Strikeforce again. We gave them the benefit of the doubt after the last calamity with the tournament being rearranged at the last second, dropping two decent fights and not even announcing the undercard until the weight in. They fixed the undercard problem now, but their organization is way too unstable to deal with.
Next time they have an event, if the card is still stable a week before, we'll probably put it up, but if it goes like the last two, forget it.
I actually think thats a lil bit harsh tho dude cos nothing seems to be "THEIR FAULT" really, Shields got injured, no big deal there, Diaz isnt allowed to fight cos of the CSAC likely nothing to do with SF ......... what else has changed? LOL i cant think of any other changes
Melendez was supposed to fight Josh Thomson, who was injured, then he was supposed to fight Masvidal, who was injured, then he was supposed to fight Cristianson, who backed out for some reason, and now hes got Lemley, who says himself hes going to lose.
Villesenor was supposed to fight Joe Riggs, who was hurt, followed by Cyborg, who couldn't get into the country, and now gets Jensen.
Diaz is off because the CSAC are a bunch of hacks. Shields got hurt. Strikeforce actually had a decent idea and threw the two opponents together, even though Jae doesn't stand a chance.
Gina Carano was supposed to fight but backed out because of American Gladiators.
This card, which was initially interesting, fell apart in a matter of minutes, and having a card with 9 fights featuring 5 underdog bouts says this is a lousy event. Some of this stuff was out of their control, but some of it most certainly wasn't, which is why Strikeforce probably isn't going to be featured here again.
