    Werdum getting released was the best thing to happen to him.

    I loved Strikeforce, was nice having a legit alternate option to the UFC, lot of great fighters over there

    Bellator is alright but it's not even close to what SF was

    Strikeforce had the better fighters, but UFC had the better and more consistent product.

    Strikeforce was a patch work promotion, good fighters and fights, but not much of a sports league, events didn't seem to follow much of a regular plan or pattern or storyline, champs were inactive, the rankings were a joke etc.

    I'd go as far as to say it's a big reason for an asterix by some UFC GOAT names, at least in many peoples eyes.

    If you have Showtime, Showtime Extreme shows a lot of Strikeforce events.

    A lot of fun flashbacks.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I'm starting to like Werdum.

    That's where Werdum set up his claim to HW GOAT, then solidified it when he subbed Cain years later in the UFC.

    Some great cards from the Shark Tark.

    Too bad Gus Johnson was announcing them.

    Exactly how I see it. UFC really should have kept it around as an option b for bigger named fighters who can't compete at the best level anymore and up and comers.
