Gilbert doesn't want to keep effing facing Thomson!

But Thompson won the last fight. Seriously though, there's nothing wrong with rematches if the fights are good and competitive. I'd much rather rewatch their last fight than several other Melendez fights that were uncompetitive or downright boring.

PS: Kudos on the avatar



But it just gets boring to me. I didn't think it was their best fight.

I think SF/Showtime's deal might only be for one year or I can't remember w/o looking it up. Maybe they don't renew it and then they can come over or the fighters just don't resign with SF.

Absolutely retarded.....everyone should have a chance to take their careers as far as their potential and hard work dictates. Could you imagine signing a clause at your office or whatever that sai dno matter what you cant get promoted? This is not the way the world works....especially not the American sports world.

it's called a non-compete and it is the way the world works when you get an important position in a company I had to sign one for my job.

Basically the UFC picked out all the SF guys they wanted and brought them to the UFC and then they tried to workout a deal with Showtime and they got a deal done with them, but only with the rest of the roster or top guys having to stay so UFC can't bring them over and leave them with nothing.

That I can understand to a point.

What I don't understand is how Dana denys it and doesn't even read Meltzer's report back right. Then the Showtime guy also denied it.

Its all bullshit.


This is why one single top organization is good for the sport. Multiple organizations only serve to keep big fights from happening.

One promoter is good for greedy fans, but one organization is bad for fighters because they lose options and competition and any power to negotiate a better deal. One organization is what ufc and sf are. They want to bring all the best SF fighters over but can't because they have a TV deal that needs a roster of fighters. Not hard to figure out.

The answer to this is simple: put strikeforce out of its misery
