It’s not formulaic like the UFC’s posters tend to be, but I’m not sure these are the best images they could have used. I dig the how the “S” in “Strikeforce” is about to rip Feijao’s leg off (and apparently already got the left one), but couldn’t they find a pic of Hendo where he doesn’t look like an angry howler monkey? Neat how both guys are only referred to by their nicknames, though they probably should have mentioned that it’s a title fight.
But the real problem is that there’s no mention whatsoever of the Coenen/Tate womens 135-lb championship scrap that’s on the same card. Strikeforce has the best roster of female fighters in the business, and by the caliber of those involved, I’d say this deserves to be billed as one of the biggest and most competitive cat-fights in history. Yet all too often, Strikeforce treats its employees who lack either big tits or testicles as if they’re second-class citizens. No one cares about you, bitches… now go make Mr. Coker a sandwich. And no pickles! God help you if there’s pickles. Well at least they got some brief love in ” target=”_blank”>the commercial.
Naturally there’s been some changes since we last discussed this event, so the lineup now looks like this:
LHW Title Fight: Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante vs Dan “Hendo” Henderson
Womens WW (135 lb) Title Fight: Marloes Coenen vs Meisha “Rumblebum” Tate
Tim Kennedy vs “Marvelous” Melvin Manhoef
Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal vs Billy Evangelista
Jorge “Fuck BJJ” Gurgel vs Tyler “The Tyrant” Combs
Jan “Cuddles” Finney vs Jessica “Evil” Eye (no shit)
“Relentless” Roger Bowling vs TBA (rumored to be Josh Thornburg)
