  1. Strikeforce 4/17


    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.


  2. 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.

  3. I am anxious to see it after missing the last UFC ppv.

  4. I am not looking forward to this due to Aoki not being able to wear his bright yellow tights

  9. most important fight is mo/gegard. this will show if mo is really as good as he looked the past couple fights. also this is the last fight on gegard's M1 contract so will we see him in the ufc??

    He still has fights left on his contract with SF/Dream, but I can't find anything about the exact number.

    I believe I read somewhere, that it was relatively short, but that his people are in renegotiations with SF. Kinda curious to see how good Mo is.

    I could be wrong, but I think I read somewhere the Gegard signed another relatively lengthy contract with strikeforce.

    that suuuuucks he definitely has the talent to clean out ufc's 205, no offense to any ufc fan boys in attendance here

  15. I think Lawal might be a handful for the dutch.

    It's against the unified rules to wear those type of pants.

    gegard is armenian he used to fight on a dutch team, you gotta watch some of his fights. Mo has been fighting cans like Kerr and mike whitehead. Mo is very quick and has amazing wrestling and crisp boxing, but gegard is definitely a complete package. plus he trains with fedor. ok done swinging on nuts

  19. 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.

    True, but SF and Dream almost always have open contracts which means he is free to fight anywhere as long as he fullfills his obligations to SF and/or Dream. That means if Dana REALLY wants him that bad, he will need to have a similar contract.....which I don't see happening.

    Not on their top talent. They generally have contracts that allow them to only fight in the US for SF and in Japan for Dream.

    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.

    he had a few fights besides that...submitted big a$$ Mark Hunt, upkicked Jacare to death, triangled Manhoef, triangled Kang, decisioned Hector Lombard who is a monster. hes got a bunch of fight experience even though it may be against guys that dont make headlines. ive also watched his grappling and kickboxing matches. he hasnt fought too many top opponents because they havent given them to him, there is always the build up proccess and the organizations hes fought in dont have the popular names that UFC does.

  24. plus he trains with Fedor!!! is that not enough??!?

    When you've got Fedor as your Jedi master, it's a beautiful thing.
