decided to make a new thread to discuss Strikeforce events, like the one that happened last nite.

there was a HUGE upset in Brett Rogers defeating Andrei Arlovski. you may remember Brett Rogers as the guy who called out Kimbo Slice when Elite was still on CBS. well now he just proved he could back that up.


also a good main event in Robbie Lawler vs Jake Shields. Shields usually fights at welterweight, moves up in weight to fight the the #4 ranked Middleweight "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler. it was a fight he was not expected to win. in this clip you can hear the announcers talking smack about Jake Shields and BJJ. then Shields sinks in a guillotine choke, haha!


other results from last nite:
Nick Diaz defeats Scott Smith
Joe Riggs defeats Phil Baroni
Mike Whithead defeats Kevin Randleman
Mike Kyle defeats Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante

and the next Strikeforce event will be Aug 15, and will be headlined by...

Gina "Conviction" Carano vs Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos

"The fight between Carano and Santos will be the first time a women's MMA fight has been featured as a main event on a highly publicized broadcast such as Showtime, and will be the most anticipated fight in women's MMA history".

man, i wish i had the Showtime channel.

That was a pretty good show. Enjoyed watching Diaz pick apart Scott Smith. I actually felt kind of bad for Smith. Brett Rogers was impressive too. I guess everyone knows about Arlovski's chin now. He looked gutted after that KO. Felt bad for him too. Joe Riggs actually looked awesome against Baroni, had the better stand up and out-wrestled him.

Strikeforce announcing is pretty lame though. Looking forward to Carano-Santos! So much hype for that fight, they better go 5 minute rounds!

just heard this. not only is the Carano vs Santos fight being the first time a women's MMA fight will be the main event, it will also be for the first woman's title. they set the weight at 145lbs. good idea, since both have had trouble cutting to the previous 140lb limit.

glad these two have a headlining spot. the certainly deserve it.

next question... who gets first shot at who ever wins the title? Tara Larosa?

This promises to be a great fight! i am supporting Gina all the way,she has the skills for sure but i think Cyborg willbe a real handfull with her aggressive style.

tactics vs aggression in a fight between two muay thai stylists? gonna be a tough fight for gina.

shame i cant watch it. :(

out of the demise of Affliction, at least one fight has been salvaged so far.

Sobral vs Mousasi will still happen!

"Strikeforce on Monday announced that the bout between Renato “Babalu” Sobral (35-8) and Gegard Mousasi (25-2-1) will now take place at “Carano vs. Cyborg” on Aug. 15 in San Jose, Calif."

"the fight will now be a contest for the Strikeforce light heavyweight championship belt currently held by Babalu Sobral"


i really have to find someone who has showtime.

Fedor finds a home in Strikeforce

yet another reason to get showtime.

apparently he will be fighting in the fall. but the big question is, agains who?

of the top of my head, i believe Strikeforce has Fabricio Werdum, Alistair Overeem, and Brett Rogers.

and probably after one more fight, couture. :lol: Well I exaggerate to make a point. Now randy can pick up the Fedor bus here in the states, rather then europe. The only two fights that I would like to see concerning Fedor would be Brock and/or Couture. The reason is because niether to my knowledge has fought Fedor. Brock for obvious reasons, Couture I dont know why. If Dana let Chuck fight Rampage back then in Pride then why didnt Randy get a chance with Fedor? Did he not have to same confidence in Randy that he had in Chuck?
