It was speculated to no end whether or not the winner of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix would be the Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion. With the current champ, Alistair Overeem leaving Strikeforce it was presumed that the winner would indeed be the new champion.
It looks like that is not the case. However, the winner of the tournament will be the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Champion and a la the old PRIDE days the Grand Prix winner will receive a Grand Prix belt.
The belt looks a tad bit different than the Strikeforce strap. What are your thoughts on the design? What would you have done?
