Saturday night brought us BJ Penn and Anderson Silva asserting their dominance, and Sunday brought a batch of great fights and a huge upset with Brian Bowles knockout of Miguel Torres. The bantamweight division is much more interesting with Bowles on top which sets up some creative fights with him vs. Mizugaki, Cruz, Yahya, Curran, Benavidez, and of course a Torres rematch. The WEC has yet to disappoint, and if you’re not watching it, then you are an irresponsible MMA/sports fan.
Now onto some news….
-Nick Diaz is out against Jay Hieron and Jesse Taylor is in. This sucks for Hieron as he keeps changing opponents making preparations difficult. Diaz’s well documented history with weed brings more trouble for a seemingly cursed Strikeforce card.
-No more Dana White video blogs!? Noooooooooooooooo
-Fedor’s next opponent is Mousasi in a sparring match I can tolerate one freakshow exhibition a year. Aoki was the limit. I’d rather see real fights.
