Isnt Vinicius Magalhães that body builder looking jiu jitsu black belt who was on last light heavyweight Ultimate Fighter that Bader won? He cant be fighting at lightweight now.

Only in Strikeforce could you miss the cut for a catchweight bout, dont you love watching professionals at work

Vinicius "Draculino" Magalhães (144.5?!) This is the same dude that fought on The Ultimate Fighter at 205, right? What is up with such a huge drop? I know that some people cut a tremendous amount of weight, but holy shit.

When I first saw this photo I was expecting the headline to read "Strikeforce confirms participants in their up coming P4P, 4 man tournament.".

I like that Lashley is losing weight...meaning getting in better cardio shape and laying off the roids.

Strikeforce houston - scott cokers social test to see if you really can sell tickets to something no one could possibly care about.

MMA fan and a few strikeforce cards i might wanna see, but this drivel?

Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (203.75) vs. the 13th caller (203.5)
Tim Kennedy (185) vs. Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza (184.75)
K.J. Noons (156.25)* vs. someone who should wrestle but will be a bag for day(154.75)
Bobby Lashley (246.5) vs. a pre-dented tomato can donated by HEB.... no really compare us to Kroger.

I live here and this card is not worth the gas to see this crap.

Jobs! I meant jobs!

Are you currently self-unemployed, such as myself?

Ben, Mike...

You've already seen my wallpapers. Why are you trying to get anyone's hopes up? It's over, people. OVER.

Oh, and there's no third asterisk in your weights. I don't know who did what.

See, grammar Nazi AND MS-Paint master. Why do I not have a job yet?
