Siyar Bahadurzada attacks Strikeforce - "Strikeforce is playing games with my career"

"As a kid I saw s--t soldiers need therapy to talk about. Walking over body parts and blood after rocket attacks... I was a little kid and I saw that all the time."

 

Those were the first words out of welterweight contender Siyar Bahadurzada's mouth when I asked him about his childhood in war torn Kabul, Afghanistan. There is no coyness to him, what is on his mind invariably escapes his mouth.

 

About 10 months ago, the main thing on Bahadurzada's mind was when he would make his first trip to America as a Strikeforce fighter. Word spread quickly that the management of Team Golden Glory had locked up a deal with the San Jose-based promotion for him to compete in their welterweight division. According to Bahadurzada, a signed contract was sent back to Strikeforce in April of last year.

 

And then he waited. And then he waited some more. The enthusiasm stoked by his "big break" was gradually infected by resentment as Strikeforce dragged their feet on securing a debut fight for him.

 

"It made no f---ing sense, man!" Bahadurzada says as his voice becomes a tangle of confusion and anger. "They came to me and my management! They wanted me to fight for them. These a------s... [strikeforce President]Scott Coker and [strikeforce Matchmaker]Rich Chou couldn't even return a call after talking about how they're so excited to have me in Strikeforce."

 

Still, a contract is a contract and Bahadurzada knew he would get a fight eventually. An illusion shattered this morning when, according to Bahadurzada, he found out from Team Golden Glory management that Strikeforce has yet to sign the contract they offered him 10 months ago.

 

"They've been ****ing me around for 10 months, man. 10 f---ing months of my career they ****ed me around ." Says Bahadurzada as his voice strains with emotion. "I turned down some big opportunities because of this s--t. Bellator offered me a contract for good money and we told them no because of the Strikeforce contract. If these motherf-----s didn't want me, all they had to do was say so and fine. Instead, Scott 'Pig F----r" Coker and Rich 'F--k' Chou want to play games with me!"

 

Bahadurzada alleges that Strikeforce told his management they won't sign off on the contract because the financial terms are too high.

 

"It's bulls---, man. It's their f---ing contract, they sent it to my management. We didn't make the contract, they did and they sent it to us." Bahadurzada says before laying his chips out on the table. "Let me tell you, I will never accept a f---ing penny from Strikeforce, but I will do this... they have their welterweight champion Nick Diaz fighting [Evangelista Santos] this Saturday. I will fight the winner for free in Strikeforce and if I lose I will retire from MMA. I want you to understand I love MMA, it is the only thing I have in my life that I love so understand how serious I am when I make this challenge to a bunch of clowns I f---ing hate. If Strikeforce accepts, I guarantee you I will knock out their champion."

 

When reached for comment, Strikeforce Director of Communications Mike Afromowitz refused to speak on the matter.

I just talked to Golden Glory and found out that @strikeforce has not signed the contract yet, which they offered me April last year.

 

So @strikeforce has been fooling us for last 10 months. Now it has become a matter of principles for me.

 

If @strikeforce treat me like that, here is what I gotta say to 'em. **** Scott "the pig" Coker! **** Rich "****in" Chou! & the entire crew!

 

I'm a man of honor & I do not let ****roaches like Scott Coker and crew treat me like that! So roll up my contract and stick it up ur asses!

 

So @strikeforce I challenge ur WW champion Diaz/Cyborg and I'll make him my ***** that night. If not, I give u my word, i'll quit MMA!!!!!!

 

@MMASun strikeforce can suck my ****! I won't fight for them even they offered me a million a fight. I would love to join @UFC some day.

Strikeforce doesnt have enough events' date=' they need to at least give this guy a shot in the next three though...maybe him vs. Scott Smith or Paul Daley? Since he's so persistent.[/quote']

 

They have had 10 months to sign the contract and they didn't sign it yet. They won't even talk to him (Siyar). If anything the UFC should pick his *** up.

Maybe if it went to the ground' date=' but on the feet who knows, the dude does train at golden glory so you gotta think he has some good standup....[/quote']

Haha fair enough.

Too many good strikers there, so anyone associated could be assumed to be a world-class striker :eek:

 

 

I'll stand by my man though ;)

I just can't wait for Bellator to get going. Bellator in full swing = More MMA.

 

I would like to see where The Killer ends up though (Siyar)

Gotta think having Schilt, Overeem, and Gohkan Saki to train with has to be much better than what hornbuckle has to offer.

Anyways. Back to the Strikeforce talk. Siyar should just sign with the damn UFC and have his debut on the next Abu Dhabi card.

I can get on board with this.

No one should have the situation he's having, but I think Bellator would pay him better than the UFC (except on the sponsorship front) to be honest.

True, it can also avoid him from being stuffed on the Prelims. (Unless he gets an impressive KO) and they play his fight during the PPV broadcast. I'd like to see him go through Bellator a bit more than I'd like to see him in the UFC.
