    After Hendo destroyed Bisping, he wanted a bigger contract and Dana gave him the cut instead. Hendo jumped to SFC, where they immediately set up the fight with Shields.


    As much as I love Shields, I just can't see him winning this one against someone with so much experience and toughness. I'll be rooting for Shields, though, maybe Hendo will get sloppy and get caught in a guillotine.

    Mousasi over King Mo, Lawal is taking the champ way too lightly. Gegard hits hard and has one hell of a grappling game.

    Aoki over Melendez, he's got the weight of the entire Japanese MMA world on his shoulders. That, and Melendez won't be able to out-grapple him, magic pants or no magic pants.

    Strikeforce has only recently started appearing on Cable in the UK (Bravo, I think) and it's where I saw Fedor for the 1st Time. He didn't seem to notice he'd had his Nose Broken in the 1st Round and just proceeded to wipe out the large American in the 2nd. Now I know why here's lauded so highly. Crikey but he's bloody Great.

    Anyway, I look forward to the event.

    Wow! They even stuck Mayhem on this card thats amazing. Would rather see him fighting Lawlor, Jacare, Manhoef, or Smith though.
