Strikeforce: Miami

Unread postby XUDawg » Sat Jan 30, 2010 2:20 pm

Finally the fight I've been waiting for since the Dream/Strikeforce marriage was announced. Nick Diaz vs. Marius Zaromskis for the vacant WW championship. Diaz is one of my two favorite fighters in the world. And he has my favorite attitude. Namely, fight anybody at any weight on any notice. If you have Showtime, watch this fight.

Also a sideshow matchup of Herschel Walker vs. whatever can they put in there for him to crush. I don't know about debuting a 47 year old man. But the guy is still in peak physical condition. So we'll see.

Walker has only been training mma for a short period, and he's 47. Not too sure anyone should be considered a can going against him. I'm pretty interested in seeing how his fight goes down.

Pumped to see Riggs/Hieron as well as the Diaz fight.
Should be a good event.

Caught the end of Herschel's fight. Wow that dude is still cut at 47. Sick.

The Cyborg/Koenen(sp?) fight was the best woman's fight I've ever seen. Not that I've seen many, but the action in the fight really wowed me. Cyborg is tough. I wouldn't fight her. She would kick my ass.

My boy went to town on the Dream champ. Funny how Dream got embarassed tonight with Manhoef's flash KO and Zaromskis's beating.

But Nick definitely sounded unNick in his post-fight interview. Like he decided to go corporate overnight. He did break out some paranoia about Nate's fight against Maynard. (Which I agree with, even though I know there are some Maynard manlovers around here.)

At any rate, Nick made my night again. Maybe he moves up and beats up on Lawler for a second time so that his homey Shields doesn't have to.

Maynard manlovers? You're the one of here blowing Diaz every chance you get.
Gray's fight was close as hell, could have easily gone either way but there was no clear cut winner. The judges gave it to Gray. Diaz loses.
Maynard is a personal friend of mine so you can bet your ass i'll be pulling for him.

Decent card altogether. Some of the top guys are going to run out of legit fighters to compete against at some point. I wouldn't mind a few of these guys going back to the UFC.

Apparently, Jose Canseco would like a shot at Herschel Walker, not a smart move:

"We had a great time together."
