Goodbye Strikeforce. Thanks for the memories. Thanks for building some elite fighters.

Never really listened to any Josh Barnett interviews before. Dude is interesting to say the least.

He's got this crazy, rockers mentality.
I think they blew it with Strikeforce. Really wish they would've had Champion vs champion fights with the UFC.
I guess it's big fish eat little fish.
And dam at Nate Marquarts legs. Thing looked like it belonged to a walker.

I know right? That other dude just outworked him/was hungrier. Give him credit.

Overeem showed no respect whatsoever for Silva and that was his greatest mistake of all. Never seemingly had his guard up the whole match and finally Silva let go and showed him what's up.

The Rashad Evans Noguera was a huge disappointment. From both guys really, but especially Rashad. Even Dana White was pissed.

Aldo/Edgar should've been closer than what two of the judges scoring it 49-46, but nonetheless, Aldo deservedly won. When you're going up against the champ as they say, you've gotta' really earn/win it convincingly and Edgar didn't do enough to warrant that. Plus it didn't help matters that he had way more visible damage on his face and body than Aldo.

Great news though, Dana White said after the match that more than likely Pettis & Aldo will fight each other next.

yo.

Reems dumb. His striking is miles ahead of any other HW but like you said, him lacking respect got him tossed.

Come on man, no one cheers for Rashad.

I've been watching Bellator since it went to Spike. I couldn't watch when it was on MTV2.

I like it. I like the tournament format. It's a nice counter to the UFC's matchmaking which is becoming more and more about who is popular instead of fighters actually earning it.

I like that it doesn't have as much of the extra stuff either.

Yep, the Bellator tourney is what makes it great. UFC says they'll never have another tourney again & that's good. Let Bellator do it. I love how it keeps their fighters active, making them earn the title shot. No one can talk their way into one. The only thing I don't like is no elbows but it's alright. And how can any MMA fan not like some free, action packed, MMA?

The televised fights were so short!

I like finishes, but good back and forth fights that go the distance are good too. I think a mix is probably best.

Too bad Cyborg can't make 135. She would destroy Ronda.

So sick of Rousy. UFC force feeding her to everyone. Yes she's good but enough already. She's arrived!

SMH at Lyoto & Schaub.

Kinda tripy how two Uriahs are in the UFC
