Strikeforce 'Overeem vs Werdum' results poll: Who is the favorite to win the heavyweight grand prix?

Strikeforce: "Overeem vs. Werdum" went down last night (June 18, 2011) at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, and featured the continuation of the heavyweight grand prix tournament.

Alistair Overeem advanced to the semifinals to meet Antonio Silva by narrowly defeating Fabricio Werdum in a bout that no one particularly got the better of and everyone came away looking worse for wear.

On the opposite end, Josh Barnett soundly defeated Brett Rogers with an ugly but effective submission that sets him up for a semifinal showdown later this year against Sergei Kharitonov.

Now that the first round is in the books and it's down to the final four, it's time to reevaluate. Who's the favorite now?
