Yeah I'll second (or third...) that! :D

A wrap up of the week's Strikeforce happenings on Sherdog. Looks like they might be able to pick up all the pieces of Elite XC and make something good out of it all.

I cant believe that Kimbo is still a draw after his horrible showings. Really looking forward to the Diaz and Shamrock fight. As angry and streetish as I think the Diaz's are they always put on a great two level fight, that I have seen. I wonder if Strikeforce is going to show KJ more respect (Money) then EliteXC and ShoXC did.

Yeah, Pazios, I'm kinda stoked about the Diaz-Shamrock fight too - hopefully Nick uses some of his jits skills and doesn't just stay on his feet. Although, Shamrock will almost for sure shoot and put him on his back. Either way, Diaz's chin will hold up better than his intstructor's did. I bet KJ Noons' managers (his dad?) will get a better deal for him before they sign. I wanted to see the Nick Diaz rematch with him, but I'll happily settle for his destruction at the hands of Josh Thomson. That'll be a kickboxing clinic. I could also get into a Melendez-Gurgel clash. Kimbo? Whatever. I hope they don't bank too much on that guy. Funny that Bas dropped him and hasn't spoken to him since he got knocked out by Petruzelli's jab.

yeah I was never comfortable for Bas, the way he kept talking about how he was training Kimbo. Bas is a good trainer and a great fighter, but Kimbo is the black hole of success. :lol:

MANHOEF BY SLAUGHTER!

:boxer:


Oh yeah! That could be good... Manhoef is always exciting on his feet, can't say much for his usual choice of shorts, or that walk-in dance he does, but he has thunder in those hands. If he ends up on his back, it's a bit like watching a fawn trying to stand up for the first time. That would be great for Strikeforce and Lawler would be a perfect opponent/sacrificial lamb. Sweet!

hahah well if he can handle Saku's groundgame, I think he can take Lawler's. And if he KO'd Mark Hunt, KOing Lawler should be child's play.

yeah Mark Hunt has a head like a cinder block. i never thought i'd see Hunt knocked out. Manhoef is prone to submissions but Lawler isn't known for his ground game. i hope they make this fight one of the free one's on cbs.
