Of those you listed, Diaz vs Mayhem has the best chance of happening, but they'll probably **** it up somehow.

They seem to want to build fights up, which is fine and I can understand that, but so far it hasn't worked out for them. They want fighter A to fight fighter B, but they don't wanna do it yet so they have A and B fight C and D, then fighter A gets upset and the A vs B match no longer makes sense.

I don't see Fedor fighting anyone mildly relevant again, Overeem is too busy doing PR stunts, K-1 matches, and roids, Henderson is old and at the end of his career, Alvarez isn't under Strikeforce contract, Kimbo isn't under contract (plus, who the **** wants to see him fight anyone?), and so on.

They've put on good fights, but they seem to routinely have a problem getting their contract guys to fight.

I agree they put on good fights and agree with that they set up ways to set up big fights and have people lose f'ing that whole plan up, but I was justing thinking today -

Is there another company that could make matches that would generate interest , but seem to avoid it somehow then StrikeForce?

Last I heard Diaz was pussing out of the fight. Mayhem wants to fight him but Diaz won't put on the weight or fight at a catch weight.

Diaz/Noons 2

Smith/Lawler 2

Smith/Le 2

Diaz/Shamrock

Diaz/Zaromskis

Gina/Cyborg

Shamrock/Le

are all fights off the top of my head that the fans wanted to see for the most part.

According to an on-line poll, we apparently wanted Fedor vs Rogers.

Strikeforce is still the place where it has to be your first fight or you have to be coming off of a loss to get a title shot, right? I don't get the logic but hopefully it works for them.
