Was wondering why this didn't happen...(rate the Strikeforce show)

Nobody posted a "what did you think" poll thread. I am curious how well you think this Strikeforce event matched up with the average UFC so hold it to the UFC standard when responding to the poll.

I didnt get to see the show but I did see Strikeforces highlight vid at mmamania.com which is pretty much the entire show. It looked like a bunch of mismatches so I gave it thumbs in the middle. Some specatacular finishes but they were mismatches to start with so that lowers the bar.

I didn't watch the show, but I have watched most of the fights from the main card. It was quick, violent, exciting and the Judges didn't get the chance to **** anything up. The sorta night Dana wishes he had.

I went middle. The show itself was a lot of fun to watch, but I feel weird about praising SF too highly for basically putting on a card full of mismatches.

Up or middle.

I don't feel the card was all mismatches, but I have to say, I don't really like Strikeforce's match making. The fact they'd even put together a fight like Daley vs Smith is amateurish. I'll let Bigfoot vs Kyle slide, as Kyle was a late replacement opponent. Lindland vs anyone shouldn't happen as Lindland shouldn't be fighting anymore. Babalu vs Henderson is two guys at the end of their careers, so despite how the match went, it wasn't really intended to be a squash match like Daley/Smith was.

Henderson is at the end of his career? The dude has had 2 losses in his last 6 fights over the last 3 years, to Jake Shield and Anderson Silva. In that time frame he has two wins over former champs in two different divisions. A KOTY in the biggest card in the history of MMA and has changed weightclasses every fight it seems.
