HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. – For now, the Strikeforce heavyweight belt will collect dust on a shelf.

Following Alistair Overeem's release from the organization this past week, Strikeforce officials are tight-lipped about what's next for his vacated title and have announced no formal plans.

But not surprisingly, the organization's heavyweight grand prix could play a factor in the ultimate decision.

Seems like the most logical solution to crowning the next Strikeforce heavyweight champ

I would of guessed before last nights events whoever won the grand prix would have been champ and the first defense against fedor and then a merge...

It sucks that overeem is out of the tournament because i would have like to see him and bigfoot go at it, but i like the replacement strikeforce found in cormier. He manhandled monson in his last fight and gained a fan in me. That being said i dont think he will win against bigfoot but he will be game. The 4 heavyweights left are top fighters so i say whoever wins should just be given the title.

Ok you've made your point we all know you hate Fedor pretty much every post I read from you is an anti Fedor post it's getting old really quick. Now im not a Fedor nuthugger it's just tiresome reading in every Strikeforce heavyweight thread even if it has nothing to do with Fedor your unrelenting Fedor hate. So in conclusion WE GET THE POINT you hate Fedor so feel free not to point it out to us every single chance you get. That is all.
