Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Strikeforce Weigh-In Results

(Finally, someone to ask Herschel Walker the hard-hitting questions, like how do you deal with a spontaneous erection in the middle of math class? Photo courtesy of All Elbows.)

The main card fighters all managed to make weight today for Saturday night’s Strikeforce: Miami event, though we did find out that if Herschel Walker plans on making a serious go of it in MMA, he might want to consider a drop to light heavyweight.  Not that there’s no market at all for a 214-pound heavyweight, but it is quickly disappearing. 

The boys on the undercard did have a few minor glitches, with some coming in heavy and some laboring under paperwork problems, but as long as "Cyborg" Santos avoided female trouble we have to term this one a complete success.  Don’t forget that we’ll be liveblogging the entire Showtime broadcast, so come back here on Saturday night to get your fill of commentary, live results, and what passes for wit around these parts.  Full weigh-in results are below.

Nick Diaz (169.5) vs. Marius Zaromskis (169)
Cristiane Santos (144.5) vs. Marloes Coenen (143.75)
Bobby Lashley (252.25) vs. Wes Sims (258.25)
Melvin Manhoef (185.75) vs. Robbie Lawler (185.75)
Herschel Walker (214.25) vs. Greg Nagy (210.5)
Jay Hieron (170.25) vs. Joe Riggs (170.5)

David Zitnick (154) vs. Michael Byrnes (TBA)
Craig Oxley (144.75) vs. David Gomez (144.5)
Sabah Homasi (171.5) vs. John Kelly (170.5)
Pablo Alfonso (139.25) vs. Marcos Da Matta (139.75)
Ryan Keenan (168) vs. Hayder Hassan (170.5)
Joe Ray (TBA) vs. John Clarke (169.75)

Take it easy on the kid. You all poke fun at the awkwardness of puberty yet all who do are probably either: a. still going through it or b. have gone through it and this kid would still kick your ass and knows more about mma than you ever will or c. have gone through it physically, yet not mentally or emotionally.

How the fuck did UFC Fan get a personal interview?

Dana White was right about Showtime. They suck ass. I'm not sure who's ass. But whomever's ass it is - that ass has its cheeks spread open wide and Showtime is right in there french-kissing that asshole with their tongue three inches up into the colon. They suck ass with a vengeance.

I've called around to every sports bar within a 20 mile radius and not one is showing the Strikeforce event tonight. Am I really going to be stuck with a shitty internet stream for this event tonight? Likely answer: Yes.

Showtime can suck my ass when they're done sucking whomever's ass they're on right now.

Fuck Showtime and fuck Strikeforce for getting into bed with those Showtime fuckwads. God I hope Zuffa buys Strikeforce soon.

The answer to that question is easy...tuck it into your belt.

Yo, that kid has a twitter. He is apparently an Sports/MMA journalist and has "credentials" for the Strikeforce weigh ins. Interesting, sort of.

Watch your back Fowlkes!

"Holy shit, Tito and Sarah-Jessica Parker had a love-child!! Where the hell was the Inquirer on that one?? Mathew Broderick must be a mess..."

Well who do you think fluffed Tito?

Holy shit, Tito and Sarah-Jessica Parker had a love-child!! Where the hell was the Inquirer on that one?? Mathew Broderick must be a mess...

As for Herchel fighting, even though he has little or no MMA skills, does anyone think his athleticism is going to get him through a few fights at least? I hate this crossover bullshit with other athletes coming into MMA and getting televised fights right away, but in his day, Walker was one of the best conditioned athletes on the football field. That's got to count for something...especially in a HW division (in any promotion) where more than half the fighters gas after the first round...sometimes less than that. If he has any kind of chin, he may beat some of the low- and mid-tier guys on conditioning alone.

Behold the baby blue long sleeved T-shirt of omnipotent pimpitude.

From whores to Queens they're all defenseless against its unkempt roguish charm.

Oh, and I used to be VadersAsthmaProblem. For all my peeps.

I think that kid was transplanted from the early 80's. I remember those hair-dos, people, and that's exactly what they looked like.

In three more years that bastard haircut is gonna morph into a mullet. Then it'll put on a flannel shirt and blow its face off with a shotgun. Then, and ONLY then, will that mullet be celebrated as a musical genius (posthumously.)

Oh, Herschel Walker is still a douchebag. Maybe he should fight James Toney. Loser has to be the other's prison bitch for a week.
Wrye Bash- January 30, 2010 at 6:54 am
What a joke. When are they going to give Diaz a competitive bout? They need to give him Anderson Silva and Georges Something St. Something at the same time or maybe a tag team battle with this Whitemare fellow and... a lion?

@ghostboner: Be more specific. All those fuckpigs from "Sex in the City" look like what would happen if Roy Rogers fucked Trigger.
ghostboner- January 29, 2010 at 9:59 pm
And why the hell is that kid's head so big? Is he the bastard offspring of Tito and the horse faced bitch from sex in the city?
ghostboner- January 29, 2010 at 9:53 pm
@Seoul Brother - good one.

214 and 210 are you kidding me? Is Herschel the Kimbo of Strikeforce? Was this always a catchweight bout? These bozos couldn't cut 9 and 5 pounds respectively? Well looks like we finally found out what weight Moneyweight is.
