Just wanted to see what u guys thought about the upcoming strikeforce event. I personally think it is a very good main card. It sucks I won't get to watch it since I am in Afganistan. I don't think they will air it on afn like they do the ufc events. All I am saying is go Hendo, he is facing a very durable opponent though in Jake Sheilds. I see it ending with a heavy Henderson right hand.
The other bout that is interesting is The Mousasi/Lawal bout I just don't know how this one will turn out guess I will have to read about it.

Hendo fight should be great. Hopefully he beats Jake and then Jake will be heading to the UFC.
I'm really looking forward to Gilbert Melendez vs. Shinya Aoki. This will give everyone an idea of how Aoki would stand up against a lot of the UFC LWs, IMO.

I am excited to see the Gegard/Mo fight, but I think it benefits Mo much more than Gegard. If Mo even stays competitive with Gegard, his stock rises; Gegard, however, has to put Mo away convincingly to keep his mystique up.

[QUOTE=AntonG42O;2383633]that suuuuucks he definitely has the talent to clean out ufc's 205, no offense to any ufc fan boys in attendance here[/QUOTL
Plenty of people have the talent to do things. Mousasi has beaten a washed up Babalu and Sokoudjou... I really don't see how he has proven himself at LHW much. I just don't get the dikkriding before proving anything mentality. He hasn't beaten a top ten LHW and a lot of ppl have him ranked at #4 or 5.

Well......Mousasi signed for 2 more years.
My predictions for the main 3 fights tonight:
Henderson via UD (in what could be a boring fight)
Mousasi via sub rd2
Aoki via sub rd 2

I say KING...you say MO! I called that ****t. Mousasi is ridiculously overrated. He can easily clean out the ufc lhw division, but he can't fukk with MO, hahaha. Thanks Mo, won me 150 bucks on betus as well.

People rag on Mike Goldberg, and rightfully so, but given the alternative of SF's broadcast team, I will take him. Renallo and Shamrock semi-bickering throughout the analysis was distracting, and Renallo truly looked like a moron as the broadcast was coming to a close and he was jockeying for position with Jake Shields so he could say how "disgusting" Mayhem Miller was.
While the UFC's production value will never compare to PRIDE's, or even DREAM's for that matter, SF looked like a rink-a-dink promotion in comparison tonight. The broadcast ran too long, the analysts were just horrid and it looked as if I built the walk-in ramp and exit.
As for the fights, I am a bit confused as to whether Mousassi, Aoki and Henderson underperformed, or if Mo, Melendez and Shields were truly better. I think the a little of both for each fight, though I feel Melendez just exposed Aoki for a one-dimensional grappler who is lost when there is a cage to cut off his angles, and negate his sub attempts.
Shields' performance drummed up a bit more interest in a potential GSP/Shields match-up should Shields sign with the UFC - which he probably will - though his stand-up looked a bit rudimentary. Given that Shields could take Henderson down, it would be interesting to see how the fight with GSP would play out. I still have a feeling that GSP's more dynamic stand-up and better athleticism - speaking in comparison to Hendo - would put Shields in trouble, but he is a credible threat at 170, something the UFC desperately needs.
Melendez really did fight the perfect fight against Aoki, and I wish he would have mangled his face into oblivion. I hate Aoki, Melendez was much better. Enough said!
