    your right, it would do nothing for MMA or Lashleys career, however lashleys career took a pretty big hit in his last fight. it would also do nothing for a more established mma promotion, but strikeforce is stuck as being a regional promotion with some national exposure, even though they do have some pretty big names fighting for them.

    if they would stack the card with exciting fights, they could gain viewers and fans. from a business standpoint, it might be what they need. from a pure mma standpoint, its a pointless match. but hey, so was toney vs couture, yet we all still watched and it drew in some boxing fans. hell, dana even admitted it was a freakshow fight. in japan they use to have these freak show fights all the time. and they always did pretty well.

    strikeforce seems to be striking out with everything else they try, and they need something to generate new fans and viewers.

    Coker and company seem to keep up coming up short as far as booking a national promotion, anyone can book a nice niche market like Nor Cal but it's a whole different trying to book a promotion with events being held nationwide.

    Oh gee! Oh YES! Oh man-oh-man! Lashley VS Batista in an MMA match?! THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST FIGHT EVER IN THE HISTORY OF ALL MMA!! There is NO WAY this is really going to happen?! Ommfg. No way.

    We should all be so thankful and appreciative to Scott Coker and Strikeforce for making SUCH a legendary matchup that will forever be imbedded in the hearts of all audiences lucky enough to lay eyes on such a spectacular display of true martial art skills and utter dominance that no other men in the world could dream of unleashing upon our unworthy memories.

    I am utterly speechless and absolutely blown away by the sheer superiority and matureness of Strikeforce, and the fact they have the cajones to put on this unthinkable arrangement of two of the most prestigious, remorseless, savage beasts of men inside of a cage. Oh the inhumanity! If you are a hardcore MMA fan, you should appreciate the fact you breath the breath of life in order to witness this event, as it will forever be burned in our history as the greatest battle of all time. Whoever is victorious should be crowned as G.O.A.T. and shall be worshipped by all aspiring martial artists.


    ...(Absolute sarcasm in the greatest. Fucking fools.)

    As much as I don't want to see a Batista vs. Bobby Lashley fight, if SF is ever going to do it this would be the time to do it. With Lashley coming off of a loss, if he was still undefeated the fight wouldn't have made as much sense.

    And why it should not happen? They are both cans, so the match makes sense.
    Well seriously, I dislike Coker more and more everytime, all his announcements only makes him and his organization look like a joke.
    He has 5 or 6 great HWs and he says no word about them, but he talks about fucking Batista with zero martial arts background and Lashley that other than wrestling cant do a shit.

    So valentijn Overeem vs Big Foot wont happen. Fedor, Werdum, Alistair, Kharitonov, Arlovksy, Barnett etc. are not fighting anytime soon, and when are they going to fight? Coker has no any fucking idea. Oh but despite all this shit he happily says "Lashley vs Batista should happen"

    I dont know what will happen with SF, I know that they have not been 15 years in business, but it is not their first year either, and they are acting like amateurs. They make only 5-6 cards a year, some cards are exciting, others (like the December 4th so far) are awful. They have arguably the best HW roster in MMA (even better than the HW UFC roster who is the most stacked in the history of that promotion) and they dont have any idea of what to do with them.

    So Overeem says "Fuck you, I will fight for K1 and Dream, if one day I have the desire to fight for you I will call you, but I dont give a shit about you or your championhsip" and Coker answers him "Ok buddy, no problem, do whatever you want"

    They can never come to an agreement with M1 Global.

    They dont know what to do with the other HWs, oh but however Coker knows one thing: Its extremely important to hire extra security guards for the Nick Diaz vs KJ Noons fight LOOOL

    I cant understand how SF is still in business after all the bullshit they do.

    that being said........................................Strike force is hurting and could use some attention and it would probably draw a huge WWF fan base if they put it on free tv and generate high ratings.

    at some point and time strikeforce is going to have to try something to get out of the rut they are in. they have some solid fighters but if they are really going to be a player in the fight game they should be further ahead than they are now
    I agree, it'll be a pretty big draw, and if on free tv, I'll even watch, but man this does nothing for Lashley, and the sport of MMA.
