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

Strikeforce’s “Four Men Enter, One Man Survives” Tourney Goes Down Tonight

Strikeforce is putting on a way-killer show tonight at San Jose’s HP Pavillion, with a 13-fight card that features kickboxing star Cung Le, PRIDE vet Alistair Overeem, light heavyweight champ Bobby Southworth, and a four-man middleweight tournament that will determine the next contender to challenge Frank Shamrock for his title. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. PT, and will be available to all Internet users located beyond a 150 mile radius of San Jose, via a stream on Yahoo! Sports. Though the fighters in the 185-pound tournament were announced a month ago, the exact brackets were determined by a lottery held yesterday. They are:

Trevor Prangley (185) vs. Falaniko Vitale (185)
Yuki Sasaki (183.3) vs. Jorge Santiago (184)

As for the rest of the evening’s action…

UNDERCARD
Josh Neal (186) vs. Eric Lawson (184)
Pete Sabala (137) vs. Anthony Figueroa (132)
Clint Coronel (154.8) vs. Alex Crispin (155.5)
Chris Drumm (145) vs. Evan Esguerra (145.5)
Sean Salmon (185) vs. Dennis Hallman (183) (alternate tournament bout)

MAIN CARD
Cung Le (181) vs. Sam Morgan (177.8)
Paul Buentello (250) vs. Alistair Overeem (224) (for vacant heavyweight title)
Lemont Davis (171.8) vs. Brian Schwartz (167)
Bobby Southworth (204) vs. Anthony Ruiz (204) (for light-heavyweight title)
Bryson Kamaka (169) vs. Luke Stewart (171)

Potato Predictions: Bodog middleweight champion Trevor Prangley will sweep the tournament…Paul Buentello (whose only loss in the last three years was against Andrei Arlovski at UFC 55) will finish Alistair Overeem via strikes…Cung Le will continue to make his opponents look woefully outmatched…Southworth will successfully defend his title; we’ll say unanimous decision…former pro-kickboxer Brian “The Mad Stork” Schwartz will knock out Lemont Davis via head-kick.
