Strikeforce – June 6

HVY

Andrei Arlovski [5] vs. Brett Rogers [28]

  • MMA Records: Arlovski (15-6); Rogers (9-0)
  • Result: Rogers winner by 1st round TKO. Rogers rises to 8. Arlovski drops to 9.
  • This was not the same Arlovski that fought Fedor. He overlooked a legit Brett Rogers and his glass chin paid the price.

205

Mike Whitehead [26] vs. Kevin Randleman [NR]

  • MMA Records: Whitehead (23-6); Randleman (17-12)
  • Result: Whitehead winner by unanimous decision. Whitehead rises to 23.
  • Randleman is trying to evolve his game but he forgot his wrestling in this one.

Rafael Cavalcante [30] vs. Mike Kyle

  • MMA Records: Cavalcante (7-1); Kyle (11-6-1)
  • Result: Kyle winner by 2nd round TKO. Kyle debuts at 35. Cavalcante drops to 37.

  • Result: Shields winner by 1st round submission (guillotine choke). Shields debuts at 7. Lawler drops to 10.
  • If Shields get a hold of anyone, they’re in trouble. He’s the Strikeforce version of Demian Maia.

  • MMA Records: Smith (16-5); Diaz (19-7)
  • Result: Diaz winner by 3rd round submission (rear-naked choke). Diaz rises to 20. Smith drops to 29.
  • Diaz is on fire right now. His MMA boxing is incredible.

170

Joe Riggs [NR] vs. Phil Baroni

  • MMA Records: Riggs (29-10); Baroni (13-10)
  • Result: Riggs winner by unanimous decision. Riggs debuts at 67.
  • I’m always amazed at Baroni’s chin. Maybe the best in the sport. But Riggs racks up the win with improved striking.

  • Pettis looks to be an intriguing prospect.

145

Mike Brown [1] vs. Urijah Faber [2]

  • MMA Records: Brown (21-4); Faber (22-2)
  • Results: Brown winner by unanimous decision. Brown stays at 1. Faber stays at 2.
  • More impressed by Faber fighting for 4 rounds with his elbows because his hands were broken than i was with Brown getting a decision win.

  • MMA Records: Aldo (14-1); Swanson (13-2)
  • Result: Aldo winner by 1st round TKO. Aldo rises to 3. Swanson drops to 26.

  • Result: Grispi winner by 1st round submission (guillotine). Grispi rises to 14. Pulver drops to 25.
  • I hate to admit it but i”m finally convinced Pulver is done.
