[VIDEO] Full Recap of ‘Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine’

Fun Fact: According to our Strikeforce underdog poll, a staggering majority of you Taters thought Ed Herman stood the best chance of pulling off an upset over Ronaldo Souza. In a distant second was that of the now retired Mike Kyle, and in an even more distant third was a tie between “Mike Goldberg over his drug addiction” and “Barnett’s ability to piss clean.” In short, the results were hurtful, hilarious, and wildly incorrect, which is exactly the kind of rapport we’ve been trying to establish around here for the past five years. So take in this kudos, Potato Nation, because like a rich, neglectful father in a children’s holiday movie, it will be a long time before we willingly give you another compliment.

But on the off chance you didn’t vote in our poll or even tune in for Strikeforce’s final event (Full disclosure: I am catching up on the fights as I write this. KJ Noons should be on his way to a clear cut UD victory, right?), we’ve placed a full video recap of the main card above. So sit back and let Pat Militech’s soothing baritone take you back to a night of squash matches topped off by Tarec Saffiedine’s destruction of Nate Marquardt’s leg, which apparently next to none of you saw coming.

I think Frank Shamrock put it best for once: "Strikeforce: like The Little Engine That Could."

That is, until it couldn't any longer.

I'm surprised there hasn't been more talk of Barnett's painfully awkward post fight. Was I the only one cringing through that?

Nope. It was so awkward it made me want to punch myself in the face. It made me wonder if it's a miracle that Barnett was able to pry himself away from his twin passions of D & D and pro-wrestling long enough to escape his Mom's basement and do something with his life.

Why even bother? Just post a video of people getting hit in the nuts, it'd be more interesting than this recap.
