Heavy Artillerys Next Target

Saturday night was a big night for Strikeforce, and effectively put some new names into the casual MMA fans vocabulary. For the most part the favorites won in dominant fashion, but three names stuck out above the rest with seriously improved striking. Jacare Souza and Roger Gracie put on some great striking displays in both their fights, especially for being deadly B.J.J. practitioners. Also Antonio “Big Foot” Silva out struck and out boxed Andre Arvloski for three straight rounds when most MMA fans thought he could only win by a hard shot on AA’s suspect chin, which actually held up well. After an exciting night of fights and a rightful call out of Fedor Emelianenko by Alistar Overeem,what’s next?

Strikeforce April 17th main card Announced

Several fights were confirmed yet not officially announced by Strikeforce today, including three title fights for their April 17thevent on CBS. Originally thought to be headlined by Feder Emelianenko, that idea was nixed by M-1 over the weekend. Fedor is now scheduled to fight on the promotions card in May which will likely also be on CBS, his opponent will be Fabrico Werdum.

Jay Hieron screwed again

Poor Jay Hieron is probably wishing he went to the UFC now instead of Strikeforce. After the collapse of Affliction Hieron moved to Strikeforce with the idea he would be fighting Nick Diaz for the Welterweight Title. When Diaz missed a pre-fight drug test mandated by the California State Athletic Commission he was denied a license to compete. Jesse Taylor stepped in to replace Diaz and the fight became a non-title bout on the nights undercard. Hieron went on to win by Unanimous Decision and had hoped to take on Diaz his next fight for the Title.
