- Erin Toughill will be the next opponent for Cris Cyborg, targeting a late summer title fight.

It's gotta be Lashley, he's a huge name here and this fight will get some much needed attention to the real title and most likely get Overeem some momentum, theres just no other fight in May that could make sense. Lashley wants the shot, who cares if he's not really ready and Overeem needs defend against a guy not coming off a loss like Arlovski and has Strikeforce experience. The people at Strikeforce cant afford to have thier title put up against guys coming off a loss (like Sakurai, Arlovski) it'll hurt the cred of the belts even if they win. It's as easy as putting on undercards that make sense for the future, guys who'll hopefully be put in the big shows and maybe fight for the title.

I would like to see Lashley take on Bigfoot for his next fight as a true test for a 1st big fight.


Odds are Lashley may get the title shot... And whats even more messed up is that its VERY POSSIBLE Lashley can beat Overeem via TKO or UD as his cardio is probably better and has the serious edge in wrestling.


If I had to pick this fight... I would take Overeem via KO in the 2nd... But I wouldn't count my chickens...


Either way I think it could be exciting.

Overeem's time warming up Fedor's belt is just about over. I say forget all these other matchups... Fedor should be fighting for the title. It's ridiculous to have him on their roster and not have him be the champion.

I just want to Overeem fight in the US..

Kinda funny Fedor hasnt got this shot already! Making Fedor earn a title shot! WTF!!

And if Lashley gets the shot, The Strikeforce HW belt will have about as much credibility as the ECW belt!

Dont you mean the UFC belt... Brock went 1-1 before his shot. Having Lashley get a shot after going 1-0 might be even more credible.



embarrassing either way.

Dear SF stop

SCRAP FEDOR VS WERDUM stop

REPLACE WITH FEDOR VS OVEREEM stop

HAVE IT ON CBS BIG RATINGS stop

THANK YOU stop
