“Strikeforce: Feijao vs Hendo” poster

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)

    the sammich line made me lol

    though personally id have gone with “for every pickle i find, i shall kill you” but that’s mostly because im not funny

    edit: “now make me a sammich and be damned grateful for the opportunity” also wouldve been acceptable

  • CAP says:

    Once again they seem to feature the guy they hope to win. Looks like Hendo is getting the most attention here. Still think it’s a pretty cool poster but yeah two title fights and no mention of it…you may want to hype that up.

    This poster is raping my eyes!!!

  • glassjawsh says:

    ^ we can can someone else to rape your eyes if you’d like

  • FiveBoltMain says:

    Stop hanging out with Clint!

  • subo says:

    “Fuck BJJ” is an excellent nickname.

  • Omomatta says:

    I think Jorge would prefer “Fuck Jits”…….it rolls off the tongue……like Franklin’s dick.

  • Take It Easy says:

    strike force forgot to bold who they want to win

  • Simco says:

    I dig the poster and don’t see how adding “Rumblebutt v Rumina” would make it that much better.

  • G Funk says:

    Hendo shoud’ve stuck with “Dangerous”. WTF is a Hendo anyway?

  • Symbul says:

    I like the concept of the poster but they lost it a little with the image pick and smaller details.

  • RaginAsian says:

    Miesha Tate is cute as hell and has an epic ass. Coker’s a fool for not pushing her as the 135 Gina.

  • glassjawsh says:

    ^ haha milk bags. fuckin canadia

  • scissors61 says:

    as a kid i’d go up to toronto every summer to visit family and man, i dreaded those milk bags. shit is just…wrong. 

  • Letibleu says:

    I grew up with the milkbags and had to adjust to newer milk cartons. I invented a term for it.

    Lactomangulation: The act of messing up the opening of a milk carton beyond usability.

    The bag was much easier and much more fun to open. All a kid had to do is pretend he was a Mohel (a penis Rabbi) and slice that fucker open with the tool pictured above.


  • scissors61 says:

    so you spent your childhood thinking about cutting up dicks? cool. 


  • Letibleu says:

    Look, the “Hendo” was a victim of that scalding canvas. Look at the bottom of his foot. That is why he is making that yelling monkey face.

    The “S” that chopped off the missing left leg reminds me of those old school milk bag openers.

  • Letibleu says:

    I feel bad that you spent your childhood having nightmares about your uncle’s smelly hard-on.

  • G Funk says:

    Those Canadian “milk bag openers” sure as hell look alot like American envelope openers.

  • Predator8u says:

    Alot of energy in that poster.

    I like these chaotic looking posters over the UFC’s samey(look deep into eachothers eye’s) bullshit
