I bet a three wolves moon T-shirt that Cecil Peoples will use the Lawler/Manhoef fight as all the evidence he'll ever need in justifying that no matter how devastating leg kicks could ever be, it's never any match for pugilistic prowess...

Manhoef you can redeem yourself in my book by cluing Peoples in on what it feels like by giving him a quick one to the fasciae femoris. Even still a good show by both fighters.

@roms15 I would love to see those matchups!

At first I thought Lawler was waiting to see if Manhoef would gas out and really didnt think he was gonna survive much longer with that game plan. Them leg kicks were just brutal. Proves you cant always judge a fight by who is getting hit the most.

I cant say that I am a Nick Diaz fan but, he showed some improved striking skillz tonight and you gotta give that kind of effort the credit it's due. He earned some respect from me tonight.

Hershel fucking Walker! Damn if this dude knew what a kimora(sp?) or americana was this fight could have been ended in the 2nd round no problem. The dude is incredibly strong for a 47 year old man. He needs to learn some JJ.

Wes Sims can now go slink back into his hole and continue his strict diet of beer, hallucinogens, and twinkies.

is it just me or did it seems like zaromskis was not even in the same weight class??

he might have a little more success as a light weight imo
well shit the bed- January 31, 2010 at 8:02 pm
well manhoef should get a rematch cuz that ass whoopn was beautiful till he droped his hands and seen the spirit world

Damn Manhoef could chop down a redwood with those leg kicks

The Diaz boys are good fighters but can they JUST ONCE not have that deuche-bag fake-ass "i'm so bad look how mean i am" look? It looks like someone is constantly holding a small turd under their nose

As much as people complain about Rogan and Goldberg, the Strikeforce crew is absolutely terrible. Yes, Quadros looked sacry - like a skeleton, or like he had a bad facelift - and asks the worst questions. And the announcer has always annoyed me since EliteXC as well.

But crappy cast/second rate feel aside, the fights we pretty entertaining.

I just can't get excited for Strikeforce. I mean, I was hoping to see Cyborg's cock spring to full erection when it first detected blood, but other than that it was just another Strikeforce MMA thing. And don't lie, you all wanted to see it too, just for the final confirmation that Cyborg does in fact have a penis.

The event was big on show, low on talent. Walker was a bit of a surprise, but let's see him against someone who can fight. If he takes on a name that's had at least 3 fights in the last 2 years, then he'll be doing something.

And Lawlor - dude, you gotta get HAIL MARY tattooed across your chest.

51 fuckin knees to the right thigh. 2 oh fuckin ni-een bitch.
MKO- January 31, 2010 at 1:15 pm
Gotta give props to Herschel Walker. Didn't look mind-blowing, but he looked years ahead of Kimbo, and just to be in that kind of shape at 47 is insane.
RaWrBoOm- January 31, 2010 at 12:55 pm
wish Zaromskis could've won but he'll be back

and Manhoef needs to stop putting his hands down when he goes in for the kill
robthom- January 31, 2010 at 12:35 pm
@ monkey,
yeah he was on the verge of losing that waiting game judging from that fucked up limp out of the cage.
Manhoef almost had him.

Anybody else see GSP there wearing a Strikeforce lanyard around his neck? I bet Dana loved that.
roms15- January 31, 2010 at 12:00 pm
too many ufc nuthuggers in here
Anderson Griffin- January 31, 2010 at 12:00 pm
Everyone who thinks Lawler got lucky, come on now. The dudes been doing MMA for a long time. Manhoef has some heavy hands, and some hard kicks, but if he got taken down he'd be a lost puppy. Lawler said before the fight that he wasn't gonna take him down. I think he knew from the beginning he only need one counter to put this Dutch bastard away. Manhoef isn't used to those tiny gloves, he wasnt expected to see fireworks the first time one landed lol
ReX13- January 31, 2010 at 11:56 am
Fuck Cecil Peoples (the real judge asshole). I have never seen someone limping from leg kicks in the first round! Holy shit.

Props to Strikefarce for trying. Here is my problem with these fights...Strikefarce has some great fighters...FUKIT...Here is what needs to change.
Strikeforce get rid of the following:
All commentators(especially the dude that looks like kevin bacon/tales from the crypt) KEEP Mauro Ranallo
Loose the fireworks
Loose the ENTERTAINERS Keep the Talent
All fights sucked...I fast forwarded through most...
Zaromskis-Diaz was a great matchup..Lawler-Manhoef was Great too..the rest a Joke..i Bet Dana is laughing his ass off eating donuts and sippin Machida Piss in Abudabi.....
"Cesar Gracie Jiyu-Jutsu mutherfukers" - Nick Diaz

Nick Diaz is MMA's official #1 player hater.

Possibly he's the illigitimate lovechild of Kevin Bacon and Jack Skellington of A Nightmare before Christmas?
danomite- January 31, 2010 at 10:30 am
anybody else think the name of strikeforce's next event should be "Squashmatch: Grappling's for Pussies!!"?
danomite- January 31, 2010 at 10:23 am
I think CP might have oversold it when they said it might have been the best striking performance of diaz's career. He got dropped and outboxed a guy who really sucks at boxing. Marius' gameplan seemed to be to stay in range of diaz's punches while staying out of range for his own strikes. I'm no Greg Jackson, but if i was a guy who won his last three fights via headkick and i was fighting a guy with a longer reach my strategy probably wouldn't be to stand on the outside and whiff on haymakers all night.
Sabado Gigante- January 31, 2010 at 10:14 am
If Kevin Bacon doesn't get coked up out of his mind, and changes his name to SQ, and does fight commentary and analysis, then I've just been had for a fool...
just some dong- January 31, 2010 at 10:10 am
Pretty sad when Ruthless Bob puts on the best example of defense all night. Some entertaining fights here, but no doubt in my mind that all of these guys would get killed in the UFC. I'm glad they have a legit organization in Strikeforce where they can put on a show and feel competitive.
