A smashing success for Strikeforce Grand Prix Fan Experience last Tuesday! People of the NYC will surely have an afternoon that they will never forget.

Just a couple of hours before doors open for the Grand Prix Fan Experience last Tuesday, a queue of MMA followers began to form outside the Roseland Ballroom in New York City. Once inside, fans jammed into the venue and was treated to a remarkable afternoon.

All fighters who will compete in the highly anticipated Strikeforce World Grand Prix — Heavyweight Tournament were present in the event. They signed autographs, answered some questions from last night’s emcee, Scott Ferrall, and posed for photos. Other than the fighters, fans were also able to grab photo opportunities with the Rockstar Girls, watch fight videos on giant television screens and take home tickets, T-shirts and Strikeforce fight gear giveaways.

The upcoming Strikeforce World Grand Prix — Heavyweight Tournament will take action on Saturday, February 12, at 10pm ET/PT, and will air live on Showtime. The event will feature two quarterfinal bouts between Fedor Emelianenko vs and Alistair Overeem vs Sergei Kharitonov. The match-up will take place at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The other two quarterfinal match will feature Overeem vs Fabricio Werdum and Brett Rogers vs Josh Barnett on a site and date yet to be announced.
