Observations from My Couch: Strikeforce's "Houston, We Have a Problem"

    • Bobby Lashley is no Brock Lesnar.  Nope, not by a long shot.
    • The referee standing Lashley up when Lashley had the mount was a disgrace.  However, homeboy was done, and if things didn’t end between rounds they most certainly would’ve ended in the third.  Props to Chad Griggs for making the Lashley/Batista match-up viable.
    • KJ Noons is fantastic with his hands and even better with his late punches and illegal kicks.  Please, Nick Diaz, rematch this fool and crush him.
    • Jacare deserved the win.  Tim Kennedy looked solid, but it just came down to who scored the most points, and Kennedy’s messed up grill told the tale.
    • King Mo got his ass royally kicked and he was dethroned.  He was banished from his kingdom and must now live in exile.  He is a king without a crown.  His rule is over and his subjects are no longer awed by his presence.  He is but a mere commoner now…  Okay, that’s enough of the analogies.
    • Feijao looked solid taking out Muhammed Lawal and earning himself the Strikeforce light-heavyweight belt.  But as per Strikeforce rules, he will lose it in his first title-defense.
