Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Title Unveiled


After Saturday night, we will know who the two men are that will meet in the finals of Strikeforce’s Heavyweight Grand Prix. Can Daniel Cormier defeat Antonio Silva? Will Josh Barnett grapple his way past Sergei Kharitonov? Who knows, but we’ve just been given a glimpse at the title belt that will go to the winner of the event and I feel that they might feel a bit of “ugly belt” deja vu:

The announcement came yesterday via Annie Van Tornhout with Showtime.

Also, what’s with the revisionist history? Now that Overeem’s out, we just don’t give him a plate at all? Dude won his bout. Cut him some slack, Strikeforce! (wait, you’re all part of the same family – you did him a favor!)
