Strikeforce Axes Heavyweight Division Following Grand Prix Finals

strike

Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier will fight in the Strikeforce Grand Prix finals and the winner will fight one more time against a “top heavyweight contender.” After that the plug will be pulled on the Strikeforce heavyweight division.


UFC President Dana White made this comment on the Strikeforce And Showtime Sports conference call earlier today.
“We’ll be doing 6-8 events a year and we’ll be focusing on key weight-classes and the women’s division. We’ll focus on the weight divisions that are strong. The heavyweight division isn’t deep enough so we’ll do away with the Strikeforce heavyweight division. The women’s division is very popular and we’re gonna keep it.”
