Observations from My Couch: Strikeforce's "The Fall of Fedor"

    • Josh Thomson looked like a top-level fighter, but where the hell did this awesomely difficult Pat Healy come from?  Healy performed like a beast.
    • I don’t know why referee Kim Winslow wanted Jan Finney dead, but it was clear she wasn’t going to make Cyborg stop until there was Finney guts splattered all over the cage.
    • Mark my words: Cris “Cyborg” Santos will be the first female fighter to cross over into the male 145-pound division and win a belt.  In fact, on Sunday morning champ Jose Aldo had his manager call Sean Shelby at the WEC to add a “no Cyborg” clause to his contract.
    • Scott Smith may have lost, but Cung Le definitely respected Smith’s fists something fierce this time around.
    • Congrats, Fabricio Werdum, you’ve won the lottery.  Spend your money (i.e., fame) wisely.
    • Regardless of what anyone may say, one tap out to a triangle choke does not erase a decade of taking on – and destroying – the best heavyweights in the world.  You are still the man, Fedor.
