MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Strikeforce Deathwatch: Strikeforce.com Is Basically Just a Screen-Shot of a Microsoft Word Document Now


(“It looks like you’re starting an MMA promotion. May I suggest throwing all your money into a pit and lighting it on fire instead?”)

We haven’t had a good Strikeforce Deathwatch in a while, but this one might be my favorite. A month out from their Barnett vs. Cormier event on May 19th — which also features the lightweight title fight/trilogy match between Gilbert Melendez and Josh Thomson — several eagle-eyed fight fans have noticed that Strikeforce’s official website has been drastically scaled down.

Gone are all the sub-sections on Strikeforce.com, which directed readers to event calendars and fight rosters. Instead, it looks like some intern just screen-capped the latest press-release on MS Word — without running spelling-and-grammar-check first, mind you — posted it, and called it a day. The only link on the site is contained in the poster image at the top, which directs to a freakin’ GoDaddy page.

Strikeforce’s twitter account confirms that the site has actually been down for four weeks — which is like 12 years in Internet time — but promises that the full site “should” be up by next week. And that’s how fast things get done when your parent company doesn’t give a rat’s ass anymore. Meanwhile, Scott Coker is in permanent “casual Friday” mode…


(“Waaaaaow, a postah thined by Thcott Cokah himthelf…”)

Best photo caption I've ever read on this site. Props like a mufugga for making me laugh.

GEEK TIME: The GoDaddy banner is not the only link left. Use your Tab key to flick about and you'll see Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc. links all still in place in the same positions as *used* to make sense when the real site was there. Not that interesting, but just further evidence of how incredibly lazy this is.

WOW that is beyond f--ked up, what about the fighter still trying to make thier name under the strikeforce banner. I always knew when the next strikeforce events where and who is fighting but now I dont have a clue. This is just another example of how the UFC has a stranglehold on MMA. I have been trying to go the the strikeforce website for what it seems like months. What about showtime dont they have a stock in all of this. PATHETIC

My god Scott Coker looks like a tosser. Oh and is Mike Tyson like the American equivalent of Paul Gascoigne? Imagine having to pick a more likeable person... Scott Coker or Dana White.

I heard that once they installed a captcha system the loss of web followers became too much for them to handle.

I was viewing their Fighters pages one day for Fantasy MMA Draft that a bunch of awesome guys and I partake in. You know looking ahead for guys that the UFC would want to bring over. My computer went to sleep and my internet connection timed out so I hit the refresh key, and right away I was brought to the front page which was a Huge poster Hyping the Rousey/Tate fight. Yeah needles to say I was unable to finish my work from their site.

Is Iron Mike levitating next to Coker?
David Blaine Mixed with Mike Tyson... I think Dana has his fill in for Overeem!
