Results: Healy submits Blanco (Blanco submitted for the first time in his career)
Luke Rockhold defeats Jacare Souza by decision to win Strikeforce MW title
Daniel Cormier pulls off a big upset by TKO'ing Bigfoot silva in the 1st round and advancing to the HW GP Finals!!!
And in what comes as no surprise to anyone: Josh Barnett wins by 1st round submission (side choke) over Sergei Kharatonav (spelling?)to advance to the HW GP finals where he and Cormier will face each other for the HW GP Championship. No word on the date of that event just yet.Soon as I find out I'll post it here.
Hey doc remember how we were talkin' 'bout Bigfoots big ass head? Well he broke Daniel Cormier's hand w/ it! From mixedmartialarts.com>Cormier's hand broken, out at least six weeks
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker plans for the eight-man grand prix to conclude in early 2012, when Cormier will meet fellow finalist Josh Barnett."If Daniel wasn't available for an extended period of time, we'd consider another opponent (for Barnett)," said Coker. "We'll wait and see how his hand is after X-rays.
Cormier's management provides further detail to USA Today.If all goes well, Cormier will wait six to eight weeks before resuming training, according to his management agency, Zinkin Entertainment
lol. cormier did the nasty on bigfoot. should be a good fight against barnett.
Yea I hope they don't replace him w/ another alternate. I think Overeem being cut cause he wouldn't fight as early as 9/10 was just a game Dana and co. ran on to get Alistair out of his Strikeforce obligations and into the UFC, but I don't think they'll put the rush job on the finals. Surely they'll want this to be the finals match: Barnett v Cormier. Otherwise what's the point ya know? Prolly happen sometime in early jan. That gives Cormier enough time to recuperate and get in a full camp PLUS it'll prolly be the last time we see a strikeforce show since the showtime contract runs out in feb.!
yup, I'm thinking it will be strikeforce's last show too
Sorry I aint been on here doing updates or anything much, but there's not been a whole helluva lot goin on in the mma world really. which is weird cause there's shows coming up for like the next month, month and a half of weekends.
Well Josh Koshchceck has been talikin' shit about Matt hughes ducking him for years, and how he had to put him on front street about taking the fight by tweeting about it like he did (koshcheck tweeted was ready to take the fight if Hughes would accept it) here's a link to that article:http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2011/9/13...ry-matt-hughes
But that's about the most interesting shit I can think of for now lol......sad isn;t it? lmao
Theres a few things going on, the whole Diaz fuck up situation, Overeem v Lesnar and the Fox deal, new season of TUF coming up, and the fight night at the weekend. Cant wait to Overeem in the UFC.
looking forward to this seasons ultimate fighter. I'm a fan of mayhem. he used to come to hawaii and kick all the tough local boys asses. he earned a lot of respect here in the 808.
No shit? That's an awesome story! Yeah I'm a fan of Mayhem's too.
@ the uk greek: The only things I haven't covered in that list you mentioned was the upcoming TUF season (not sure if I already mentioned it when news of the coaches broke or not, I'll check a few pages back). Fixin to start a thread for the UFN 25 card coming up.....maybe, but yeah I covered the "Diaz fuck up shit." from jump street, and the fox deal, and the Lesnar/Overeem fight.......That's what I was saying; already reported (re-reported) everything I'd read/heard about so that's why I hadn't put much on. but I'm pretty excited about this season too! I know from what Bisping's been saying in interviews, they had a lot of friction so I can't wait to see it unfold and then the fight! Prolly will most def start a thread on the tuf season, seems like it'll be popular.Doowmd
