Strikeforce video trailer for heavyweight tournament semifinals in Cincinnati on Sept. 10

Strikeforce: "Barnett vs. Kharitonov" is set to erupt from the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Sept. 10, 2011, featuring the second leg of the promotion's heavyweight grand prix tournament. Josh Barnett vs. Sergei Kharitonov and Antonio Silva vs. Daniel Cormier will be the featured fights of the night. Notably absent is Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem, who was swiftly replaced by Cormier when he could not be ready in time for the event in little more than two weeks. Has the event, as well as the tournament, lost its luster?
