Re: “ESPN Blogger: Will Strikeforce's "Low-Watt" Nashville Ticket Draw Network Viewers?

i agree with this statement, their isn't enough name recognition for the card, although its free so i think alot of people will still watch, because its free.

as for dan henderson, he knocked out wanderlei silva in what seems like decades ago and also when pride was still a working organization, also he lost both of his titles in his first two fights in the ufc, dont forget the lackluster hendo vs franklin fight which i still beieve he didnt deserve to win, and in the bisping fight he was supposed to win, and even with that win, no one wants to see anderson silva bust up dan for another win, so i can see why he left to fight in a lower promotion to be a big fish in a very small pond. with drawing power like anderson silva, gsp, and brock lesnar just to name a few, i doubt the ufc will miss hendo.

as for strikeforce and its supposed attempt to steal some market share from the ufc, strikeforce is not set up to benefit the company, alot is made of how much money fighters recieve, but you have to understand a brand needs to be built and take it more and just a billion dollars. Think of major sports brands like the MLB, NFL, and NBA, wich rake it hundreds of billions of dollars, allowing them to pay their big stars retarded amounts of money. the ufc is an established brand with more ranked and pound for pound fighters in the world. and its very true, without the success of the ufc taking mma from toughman obscurity to mainstream sports, we wouldnt even be having this conversation, and strikeforce wouldn't exist.

im gonna watch, because i like mma, although i feel after 3 cards strikeforce will not have as appealing cards because of their extremely mediocre fighter stable.
