2010 Strikeforce HW GP

Postby TheMadTitan » Tue May 08, 2018 6:27 pm

Do you believe this was 8 years ago now? Where has the time gone?

The infamous tournament with the lineal HW title on the line: http://www.mmanews.com/linear-heavyweig ... weight-gp/

Cormier won the tournament, so technically Jon Jones is the lineal LHW and HW champion. Overeem was pulled from the tournament by the UFC to face Brock Lesnar. Do you remember Brocktober? I do.

Thoughts?

It was a great tournament and a great memory. Jones had nothing to do with it tho. Fuck Jones, and his PED using ass. You know who has never failed a drug test, DC. So thanks for the memory but no need to bring up the biggest fuck up in MMA history. DC has always been a stand up guy and will retire a true champion of MMA. Jones is younger and fresher, but a cheater non the less. :pillred: :poison: :skull: :radioactive: :robot:

I remember Brocktober too. I also remember that both Brock and the horse ass eater were both juiced to the gills. Pepperidge farms remembers.

You're right. Jones has tarnished his legacy, but the lineal title doesn't give a fuck. To be the guy you gotta BEAT the guy.

Jones lineal HW and LHW champ

One of the most hyped fights of all time. Brock never had a chance though.

Ubereem was terrific....guys like him and TRT Vitor make a compelling case for the use of PEDS.

I was so hyped for this. I got together with a group of friends (back when they still liked MMA) and logged on to MMA-TV from a PS3 to watch it on the widescreen. And then Fedor lost to Bigfoot and killed the mood, but hey the tournament was fantastic in idea even if the execution wasn't perfect.

I remember the GP and all the hype surrounding it. I also remember it falling apart and not going anywhere near the way it was expected. Something you guys don't seem to remember is werdum taking the lineal HW belt from fedor, then losing it to overeem.
Overeem < bigfoot < cain < werdum < stipe.

Stipe is lineal HW champ. Jones is just the dude who stole the strikeforce HW GP belt from DC, which is the only title he ever actually earned.

I hope after infinity wars success more people appreciate your name Titan.

On topic, fuck I can't believe it was that long ago.
Technically the tourney didn't really conclude till mid 2011 but still 2010 was a wild year for me.
I was at my graduation commencements after party the night fedors streak came to an end and the only buddy that was into MMA was a legit fighter but in grade 11 and I was a loser drug dealer in grade 12 so I had no one to talk about it with.
So I ran around, fucking hammer3d, trying to convince all the preppy kids that some random Russian guy couldn't handle having his face stuffed in some random Brazilian guys crotch, was a sad/happy night with me, fedor lost but I got to fuck a chick with the biggest and nicest I've had the chance to stick my dick between.
I also was selling mushrooms around the time Reem was demolishing Lesnars insides so I watched DC/Bigfoot while tripping balls.
Also watched Monty python while high on avid, not recommended.

LOL nobody won that tournament. You can't keep pulling people out of a tournament to fight in the UFC. It was still a good accomplishment that DC beat TRT Bigfoot and juiced up Barnett. Before anyone says I don't remember correctly DC was the alternate and once one person gets pulled from the tournament it pretty much makes it fake in my eyes.
