Bizarro World Video: Strikeforce Fighters and Personalities Make UFC 121 Predictions

(Video courtesy Fight!Magazine)

If a reporter were to ask Dana White who he was picking to win from an upcoming Strikeforce card, the UFC president would likely answer with something to the effect of, "Are you retarded? I don’t fucking watch Strikeforce. That show is garbage," before walking away in disgust.

It’s sad when pride and despising the competition gets in the way of being a fan of decent match-ups and it becomes the norm for reporters to pretend that other competing organizations don’t exist when talking to promoters.

Fight! Magazine’s Danny Acosta defied convention at the release party for the EA Sports MMA game this week and asked Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, commentator Frank Shamrock and fighters Dan Henderson and Fedor Emelianenko for their picks for UFC 121 on Saturday night.

Shamrock came off like his usual arrogant self, proclaiming that he won’t watch Jake Shields‘ UFC debut and that he hopes Kampmann kills him, but the rest of the Strikeforce crew give thoughtful insight into which fighters and why they will win the main and co-main events of the card.

Somehow I doubt that Dana doesn’t watch any shows produced by the competition. That’s like working for Coke and saying you’ll never try Pepsi because it sucks. You have to see what the competition is doing, no matter how much more poorly they’re doing it.

Points to Fedor for the bit of intentional comedy at the end of the video when asked to pick a winner between Cain and Brock.

Did Scott Coker say Cain is going to out wrestle Brock Lesner? Really?!?!?!?! I personally think Brock is going to walk all over Cain. But even if Scott or anyone else thinks Cain will win, do they think it will be with superior wrestling?

@MRuss & eatSHITdie: Yeah I don't think he recalled the LEGENDS MMA GYM in Hollywood they started. Karo was there too and a few other notables.

It looks like it's still there without all it's superstar names on the website. It might be worth noting that when it was the SUPA STAR! gym, it started at something like $250/mo to train there. Even worse than the god damned Beverly Hills Gracie gym

Jake Shieldzzzzz only takes fights so he can rest and build up his energy.
RustyShackleford- October 21, 2010 at 7:45 am
Fedor doesn't give a fuck who wins.
jimbonics- October 21, 2010 at 7:25 am
Frank Shamrock is a douchenozzle. Seriously, how faggy do you have to be to make Ken look good?

Randy, Bas, Fedor. Winners, all of 'em.

Frank Shamrock has the mannerisms of an 11 year old girl. Not to mention the grill piece.

As an MMA fan in general you just have to love how Bas just doesn't give the same run-of-the-mill predictions but breaks down how and why he thinks a fighter will win.

It's called knowledge and love of the sport as a whole, son (something Frank "Catcher" Shamrock clearly lacks)!

And am I the only one who thinks Henderson sounds like Grimace from McDonald's?

"Where's the coke!? Duuuh, where are the shakes!?"
sixthsense- October 21, 2010 at 1:02 am
damn Hendo sounds just like Brock, close your eyes while he's talking and imagine Brock. And lol @ Fedor's reaction to the questions, it's like "Honestly, I just don't give a f*ck".

1st: I think Frank Shamrock is gay. No disrespect intended.

2nd: I think Fedor says in Russian, "I'm afraid of them both." Seriously.

@ MKO: I finally just scanned thru the comments. I glad I'm not the only one who thinks Shamrock bites pillows with double rainbows drawn on it while hiding in a closet in West LA.
Biffmiester- October 20, 2010 at 10:00 pm
I second Merlin's post by reiterating that Bas & Fedor are the SHIT!!!
MKO- October 20, 2010 at 9:30 pm
Not hating, and not that there is anything wrong with it, but Frank Shamrock came off gayer than Adam Lambert's asshole.
Bas, gotta love him.
Fedor. I would not be too surprised if he had no idea who Lesnar or Velasquez are. "yeah, I've seen them fight. It will be good."

I like Bas most when he's making self defence videos. Or should I say, instructional videos on committing second degree murder.

The rest of the time I fucking LOVE the guy.
Jawbreaker_46- October 20, 2010 at 9:12 pm
I LOVE that nobody gives a shit about Tito and Hamil.

Breast cancer awareness is a scam......Can you read the sarcasm, dickface?
glassjawsh- October 20, 2010 at 6:53 pm
fedor does not have time for your insignificant predictions, HE HAS A GOVERNMENT TO RUN!
choncho- October 20, 2010 at 6:51 pm
The pink hat is for breast cancer awareness you dick face.
Mike Russell- October 20, 2010 at 6:30 pm
 @eatSHITdie.. You being sarcastic or didn't you know they tried to do that already and the gym tanked?
DazedNConfused- October 20, 2010 at 6:11 pm
What I love about Fedor is that he really doesn't give a shit about anyone else or their opinions. He is content with his life and decisions and the path he has chosen in life. Even though I agree that M-1 do have too large of roles in his current career, who knows what mob ties, or shady shit are behind that. I still think Fedor is one of my top 3 favorite fighters. I hope I can have as great and exciting of a life as that ice cream lovin' mother fucker.

Moving on to the others, Bas is amazing and I wish he could commentate on UFC fights (we actually use his exercise tape in our Muay Thai class, it's great haha.), Shamrock is a fag, as is Coker. I am indifferent to Henderson.
Merlin- October 20, 2010 at 6:04 pm
Frank and Ken are just weird dudes ...
Did u see his latest interview with Ariel Helwani ? He'd look off at nothing and giggle to himself like gollum every time he was asked a relevant question.
He says he is the biggest fan of MMA out there, but only watches fights on showtime? Even Ariel was like .. say waaa?

Braced faced irrelevant has been.

BAS and Fedor are the SHIT!
Videodrome_NOW- October 20, 2010 at 6:02 pm
How petty are Shamrock and Hendo? Shamrock saying he's not going to watch the Kampmann/Shields fight...what a fag. Hendo of course is picking Shields to make himself not look completely worthless.

Shamrocks retirement was the biggest joke I've ever seen.
Hendo and his stupid pink hat=FAIL

Bas Rutten=Badass as always.

The Fedor Ice Cream smile at the end made that video...
the glza- October 20, 2010 at 5:49 pm
bas is a national treasure.
eatSHITdie- October 20, 2010 at 5:44 pm
Bas and Randy need to get together and start a co-op gym. If Randy is really going to retire this time it would be both awesome and really beneficial for young guys to train under those two.

That being said ever since Frank retired I've been really enjoying his truthful biased opinion on shit.
