The guy's 34 years old, it's not as if he's got his whole career ahead of him to build himself up.
Valid point. I think his stock would plummet hard after a Strikeforce loss though (not that it's that high in the first place), and I'm not so sure he'd make top dollar for the fight either. If he was offered it, I'm sure he would have accepted.
