Strikeforce put out the official card for their final event Thursday evening. A big change in the feature middleweight led to the first ever UFC fighter to cross over into Strikeforce.

I think Ed's got a decent chance in this actually.

Yeah, I like this match-up solid test for both and the winner gets a big win. I think Jacare has more to lose while Herman is in a win-win situation.

No way. Herman may not be as dangerous on the feet but he's a better mixed martial artist overall.

You thought Larkin stood a better chance than Herman?

I disagree. Neither stands much of a chance.

it's not the best card, but to let Strikeforce fold without a farewell card wouldn't have been right.

It's just unfortuante it couldn't be an awesome card so they could go out with a bang.

He got beat down by an old Jorge Rivera, Herman hasn't been good for awhile now.

i think you got Rivera confused w/ someone else Dave. dont think herman or jacare ever fought Rivera.

but...........

Herman got schooled by Shields & Jacare will bring more of the same but w/ better striking. Jacsre will win & might even finish Herman

I wanna say that this would be a good fight, but Herman just looked putrid in his last fight against Shields...Jacare via r2 sub...
