Apparently that Peoples guy came in like 10.5 lbs overweight and Bowling still knocked him out in less than a minute.

I'm going to go with:

Rockhold (I kind of want Jardine but if he wins then it just proves that the SF middleweight division is not ready for the UFC yet.)
Lawler
King Mo
Mein (gotta go Canadian even though I kind of think Woodley will win)
Saffiedine

Terry
Villante
Payan
Spang

Man these judges are being... interesting. James Terry clearly won his fight 29-28 yet 2 of the judges gave it to Burrell.

Also now this Saffiedine vs Stinson fight Saffiedine clearly won 29-28 (and was given the win deservedly) however 1 judge scored it 30-27 Saffiedine (Stinson clearly won the first) and one had it scored 29-28 for Stinson (preposterous considering he spent almost all of rounds 2 and 3 on his back getting punched in the face).

You know a company is weak when a guy gets absolutely demolished (KJ Noons) and then his next fight is likely a number 1 contender fight.

Rousey (I don't really care but it seems like women's MMA needs a new face to survive after Cyborg failed her test and Rousey seems to be a bigger draw.)
Noons
Daley
Jacre
Smith

Kaufman
Fodor
Couture
Bowling

I guess you win. Fodor had nothing on the ground for Healy, I should have seen that coming but I bought into the undefeated hype lol.

Healy's nose look's really bad though. Damn.

I find it funny when a fighter wins the first 2 rounds, then gets thrown a beating in the third, and calls out the champion after winning 29-28. It's just so odd.


Also that Saling guy might not be fighting for Zuffa again any time soon. From what I can see it looks like he has a SS tattoo with the number 88 over it (88 relates to HH, aka Heil Hitler in the Neo Nazi community). Also it sounds like he is some kind of high risk sex offender.

It looked like Jacre got that arm-triangle choke from half-guard. That's really impressive. Most times people need to really get that distance/leverage in side control to apply the appropriate amount of pressure.

Also looking at the Sayers guy's highlight reel and remembering Smith's chin I wouldn't be too shocked if Smith goes to sleep.

Holy fuck that referee needs to never ref again. He might have just cost Tate her career. Her arm clearly popped on the first armbar and then it fully bent backwards at the elbow on the second. That slow motion replay was one of the hardest things to watch in MMA. It made Nog's arm break look fun.

I rarely go back and see how I did so my picks are pointless. I'm gonna start checking.

6 out of 9 for me.
5 out of 9 for Nick.

That women's fight was actually really good. Rousey is sick with the arm bars. That was nasty.

Yeah the two women's fights were the 2 best fights of the night. Also I loved Daley getting smashed. I had it 30-27 Misaki.

Jacre looked pretty great but the other dude was clearly too focused on not getting subbed. When you think of the MW division the only 2 names that really stand out are Jacre and Rockhold. I really think that Jacre should be in the UFC, there really is no one other than Rockhold for him to fight, unless Marquardt is going to be fighting at MW again (Strikeforce signed him a few weeks back).

I wish Strikeforce would just go away and the best guys would merge into UFC.
Its funny that a heavyweight tournament ends with nothing. Bragging rights maybe?

Well if Cormier wins it makes that whole tourney a joke, him being there even kind of makes it a joke. Like a guy who was not even involved in the tourney might win it.

Literally the only reason Strikeforce is still around is that stupid contract with Showtime. I want Barnett, Cormier, Roger Gracie, Feijao, Mousasi, Lawlor, Jacre, Kennedy, Rockhold, and Melendez in the UFC. Maybe a few other guys, maybe not.

Luke Rockhold (not too thrilled with either of these guys right now. Both were saying Anderson wasn't acting like a champion and talking all this shit. Shut the fuck up. Dude is 15-0 in the UFC and the has the most title defenses. You're in a second [almost 3rd now] tier organization acting like you're better than him. I know you want to talk your way into a UFC contract but man.)
Nate Marquardt (Tyron Woodley might be my least favourite fighter in the UFC and Strikeforce combined, I fully expect him to blanket Nate but god I really hope Nate knocks his ass out)
Roger Gracie (I'd love to see him do well cause I love a good submission artist but Jardine wild striking and power could definitely cause him trouble.
Robbie Lawler (I know he's kind of over the hill but fuck it)

Jorge Masvidal
Pat Healy (I fully expect "Bam Bam" to snuggle Hirota and maybe get a sub but I kind of hope Hirota pulls it off.)
Jordan Mein
Jason High
Ryan Couture


Also if you want to see a fucked up submission watch Hirota's fight against Aoki from K-1 Dynamite 2009. Very similar to Mir vs Nog 2.
