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

“Strikeforce: Rockhold vs Jardine” Weigh-In Results & Video

I’m sorry, is that Mauro Renallo or J.T.???  (Video: Youtube/AllElbows)

If you’ve been sleeping on tonight’s Strikeforce event, we’re not going to throw stones. When even the defending Middleweight Champion has trouble getting excited for his bout, how can you be expected to? And though the MMA world may be talking ‘Strikeforce’ this morning, it has very little to do with what’s going down at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this evening.

But the truth is that Showtime subscribers (and you filthy, rotten streamers) can rightfully expect a night of action packed fights. This card has a great mix of seasoned veterans and wildly unorthodox strikers, and last night they all hit the scales. We won’t dangle any false promises of funny weigh-in costumes or pushing-and-shoving; there was little in the form of excitement at these proceedings. On the bright side, everyone (eventually) hit their mark.

Weigh-In results after the jump. Make sure you come back tonight—we’ll be liveblogging this card like nobody’s business.

jardine may have been cut but he also looked frail. he gassed against mousasi (he did take the fight on short notice) and if he gassed at 205 then his stamina might be even more questionable after making such a dramatic cut.

I'm surprised so many people are picking Jardine. Normally I don't put too much into how people look @ weigh in's. But Keith already looked beaten, you can tell how old and beaten up his body is. Must've been a very hard weight cut.

Even tho he's ripped he doesn't look agile and explosive at all, and doesn't look like he even believe's in a victory himself. Probably just needs to catch some of the last check(s) before retirement, I'm hoping Luke ends this in a not too horrible fashion. Really don't like to watch old fighters get brutaly KO'd.

Headline should've read,"Rockhold defends title against A.I.D.S."

Jardine looked in dam good shape during his stand upon the scale. I would like to see him rebound with a V. Overall is a good main card. Can't be any worse than the current line up for the UFC on FOX events.

There are some good fights lined up (especially for free) and since my cash is staying where it should - next to my pocket rocket, I am going to be watching this tonight...

...and gleefully day dreaming of molesting young Drano for a second time in between the rounds.

Rockhold has the haircut of a 5yo.

Jardine is going to suprise the socks of Rockhold and the fans by throwing a straight punch, much like Wandy did against Chung Li. This straight punch will come out of nowhere and thus add the missing link into Jardines fight game.

Showtime free weekend in most areas snitches.

I am going to laugh so hard if Jardine wins the belt. After drawing with Mousasi (an accomplishment at this point in his career), a title shot and a victory? JESUS, I just talked myself into picking The Dean of Mean.

Rockhold might look slightly larger than Jardine. I have Jardine by lucky 1st round tko.

Holy shit, I'm thinking about changing my screen name to Keith Jardine.
