I'm excited to be attending my first ever live fight. I'll be at the Strikeforce event that will be on Showtime (so if you get Showtime be sure to look for me) this Saturday night in St. Louis.

The StrikeForce event tonight was pretty good. Overeem looks like a beast...I can't believe he's lost 11 times though. (33-11-1, IIRC.) He called out Fedor after the fight, so hopefully we get to see that in a few months.

Yeah it was a blast to be at, and I was FRONT ROW BABY! Jacare has got to be one of my favorite fighters....I got to meet him and got a picture with him in the hotel lobby. Very nice guy and an awesome fighter. I got to meet a few other fighters like Dan Henderson, Randleman, Brett Rogers, Babalou, Tyron Woodley....almost all of the fighters are very approachable and definitely appreciate the fans....especially Hendo.

Strikeforce Challengers on Showtime Friday night. One of the guys that came out for dinner the first night we were in St. Louis, and hungout a good deal of the day Friday while we played EA MMA is fighting the 2nd to last fight...Tyron Woodley. Very cool guy, will definitely be rooting for him to stay undefeated.

Watching StrikeForce Challengers on Showtime...good event so far through 2.5 fights.

Midway through the event, Roger Bowling has been the most impressive. (I hope he doesn't get knocked out since I just typed that.)

Yep it was nuts. Fedor knocked down Werdum, and I think that Fedor thought he had Wedrum and was nonchalant as he walked right into the triangle choke.

There are rumblings of that. Hendo does want to stick around to defend his Light Heavyweight title though.

Yeah, Mir and Jones came through for me with correct picks (though incorrect on way of victory), so I finished somewhat alright. That broken arm, dear god. When they showed the replay and you could specifically see the *snap* of the bone in his arm. :sick:

Well, with the launching of Fox Sports 1 today, they sure know how to open it with a bang. I'm not that big of a UFC watcher, but with a pretty damn good top to bottom card tonight for UFC Fight Night, I'm gonna be watching. Watching UFC Fight Night Prefight right now, then got the Prelims going from 6-8pm with the undercard action. And then the main action firing up at 8pm. Should be a good one tonight.

It is bad timing though lol

Chance to drum up publicity for the game...and she gets knocked out soon after in horrible fashion.

Good thing it happened now because she would have been mauled by the Cyborg chick anyway.

Rousey had to go back to fighting push overs who like to talk trash and are intimidated by her. She won't beat Holm because she didn't appear to be able to stop eating her punches

Understatement right there. Punk got his ass straight up beat down. I saw someone on OS say that Punk only landed 6 punches.

He may have lasted 2 1/2 minutes, but that's only because Gall felt like whooping his ass for 2 minutes before making him submit.

IIRC, Rousey took home $3M, Nunes $100K. Understandable that Rousey is the bigger draw, but that seems like an obscene discrepancy.

Nunes is gonna get paid very well henceforth. Now she'll be the one selling tickets.

I saw the whole fight on FB. It was non-competitive. RR took more shots to the face than a porn star in a gang bang.
