It is February 13th, 2011. No matter what you tell yourself, your favorite fighter probably lost last night. The fallout of Fedor’s 2nd loss in a row is only beginning to reach our computer screens and the outlook is grim. M-1 Global was escorted out of the Izod center by New Jersey Hells Angels (who knows what that means) and we all wait to see what Andrei Arvloski plans to do with his career after a vicious KO from “Dark Horse” Sergei Kharitonov. My god, this GP. What if Overeem beats Werdum and Bigfoot beats Overeem? These are the hypothetical scenarios we can discuss now, as Bigfoot Silva has officially made this whole tournament very interesting. The possibilities make me dizzy. In the beginning of January, when the GP was first announced we cut a video to promote it, we will create sister videos after every leg in the tournament. Here is the recap from last night in all its glory:
The Strikeforce Heavyweight GP will return to us on April 9th as Josh Barnett takes on Brett Rogers and Fabricio Werdum battles Alistair Overeem. I can’t wait.
