This argument that because Strikeforce no longer exist doesn't make the argument that Rockhold getting a title shot is null and void. There are other logical arguments against giving Rockhold the fight against Anderson, but I am just pointing out that just because Strikeforce is no more doesn't mean you cannot promote a champ vs champ fight.
Comparing Strikeforce to Pride doesn't sit well with me though. Strikeforce was never considered the better organization. Pride was.
