UFC President Dana White Talks About the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix

via assets.sbnation.com

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker is about to put on a Heavyweight Grand Prix that he already labels as "the greatest heavyweight tournament in the history of MMA". Everyone expects Dana White to blast the idea, but surprisingly, he doesn't have bad things to say about it just yet. He spoke to fighters.com about it:

"No [the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament isn't competition], not at all. You know how I feel about Strikeforce and the smaller leagues. Listen, putting on a heavyweight tournament, if that's going to draw some interest for those guys and then they end up with a somebody at the end who is perceived as one of the top guys, I love that sh*t. I honestly haven't thought about it at all, but good for them."
