Strikeforce held a grand press conference at Lighthouse 61 in Chelsea Piers yesterday with all eight of the fighters in their heavyweight grand prix in the house, as well as the reserve fighters. Fedor Emelianenko, Josh Barnett, Alistair Overeem, Fabricio Werdum, Brett Rogers, Sergei Kharitonov, Andrei Arlovski and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva all answered questions, along with Strikeforce President Scott Coker, and M-1's director of operations Evgeni Kogan.
Topics included when the tournament would end, how reserves would be implemented in case of an injury (and how big of an injury warrants a reserve stepping in), location of the next event, what fighter thinks they are the favorite to win it all, how they are preparing, and many other questions that led to a very entertaining press conference.
