Observations from My Couch: Strikeforce's "So Long CBS, It Was Nice Knowing You"

    • Three title fights featuring top-level guys and the worst possible scenario came to fruition: all three bouts went the distance.  Jesus, what a crapfest.  I love MMA, but I watched almost the whole thing on fast forward (thanks DVR!). 
    • Someone give Gegard Mousasi a pregnancy test.  After all that humping on the ground, he might be having King Mo’s baby in nine months.
    • Good lord did Shinya Aoki suck.  I don’t know what was more disgraceful: the fact that he had no striking skill or wrestling, or the fact that he was the number two lightweight in the world going into that bout.
    • Dan Henderson looked great for one round, then he looked spent.  Jake Shields may have beaten him, but I think Father Time should get the win.
    • Am I the only person out there who thinks Jason “Mayhem” Miller isn’t completely at fault for that post-show brawl?  The dude was only trying to create hype for a future fight, and after 15 painful rounds of fanbase-killing non-action, hype is what Strikeforce needs more than anything.
    • So long future CBS broadcasts.  We hardly knew ya!

Although, some of your points were brutal, I have to see I totally agree.

Dan Henderson looked like he had one weapon and that weapon was spent after the first round.

I don't blame Miller at all.

I don't know what happened to Mousasi, he's better than that.

Good write up.

i don't blame Mayhem completely for the brawl at all.
he did have some bad timing deciding to ask for a rematch when he did.
but he did not throw the first actual punch.
