After a brief layoff for scheduled maintenance to its supercomputer, the Potato Index is back to sort through the winners and losers of Saturday night’s Strikeforce event on CBS with its arbitrary numerical rankings system. Huzzah!
Fedor Emelianenko +86
It’s hard to get a big boost in the Index when you’re a 5-1 favorite going into the fight, but he delivered with another right hand murderball, and even gave the casual fans a little blood for their trouble. But were the ratings good enough to get CBS’s attention?
Brett Rogers +4
So he didn’t shock the world. Honestly, who expected him to? He still landed some good shots and took a couple as well, but the biggest positive for him is how he performed on the mat. He’s still got some improvements to make, but he showed that he’s not all hype and a trendy haircut.
